Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A BRI­TISH man has been ar­rested for al­legedly sex­u­ally abus­ing three blind stu­dents at a school in the In­dian cap­i­tal.

Mur­ray Den­nis Ward, 54, had been associated with the New Delhi school run by the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion for the Blind for nine years, ini­tially as a donor and later as a vol­un­teer teacher, po­lice said.

School au­thor­i­ties con­tacted the po­lice after the boys, aged 14 and 15, com­plained about the al­leged abuse.

Ward ap­peared be­fore a judge after his ar­rest on Mon­day, and was or­dered to be held in cus­tody while in­ves­ti­ga­tions con­tin­ued. Po­lice have seized his laptop and mo­bile phone.

Ward, who’s from Glouces­ter­shire, had been work­ing with a tech­nol­ogy com­pany in the city.
