PESHAWAR: The principal of a private school in Hayatabad, Peshawar, accused of sexually abusing women and filming them through hidden cameras, confessed to his crimes in court on Thursday.

Police arrested the principal on July 14 in a raid on the school. According to the FIR registered under several sections of the Pakistan Penal Code, the accused used to bring women from outside the school for sexual favours and had planted hidden cameras to record them.

Spy cameras, condoms, drugs to enhance sexual performance, laptops, memory cards and USBs containing the explicit videos as well a 9mm pistol and hashish-filled cigarettes were seized during the raid which was conducted after a victim filed a complaint.

The FIR states that the accused would film the women during sex and would later blackmail them with the videos.

He was presented before Peshawar judicial magistrate Asghar Khan on Thursday where he confessed to recording the women and blackmailing them, and claimed that he was ashamed of his actions.

The accused further said that he used to bring only sex workers to the school and never exploited the school’s female staff. “I just used to sit with them [women other than sex workers] to have chit chat or a hug - relations other than sex,” he claimed.

He further told the court that he used to watch the recorded videos later for sexual pleasure.

Around 40 videos filmed through hidden cameras were recovered from his laptop. Among them were also videos of other people recorded during sexual acts in a special room that the principal had kept aside for his activities.

Police official said the accused had been involved in the criminal activities for the past several years and was never found till now because victims were hesitant to complain against him fearing the blackmail videos.

Magistrate Khan sent him to jail on a 14-day judicial remand.
