“Spiritual healer” in Trinidad accused of 91 sexual offences against a minor
A44-year-old selfproclaimed spiritual healer has been slapped with 91 charges related to his alleged sexual activity with a young girl.
Krishna Singh, a deportee, was denied bail when he appeared in court last week on the charges.
He is accused of 81 counts of sexual penetration of a female, five counts of grievous sexual assault, and five counts of sexual intercourse with a female between the ages of 14 and 16 years.
The sexual offences allegedly occurred between May 12 and August 6 this year, the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service said.
Singh was denied bail and remanded into custody, until September 16, after police informed the court that he had similar charges pending in the same jurisdiction.
Following a police trace, it was also discovered that he was deported from the United States after being convicted of similar offences.
