Remorseless monster

Arrest of Sohail Ayaz strengthens the conviction that we are living in an age when firemen start fires

Once he was supposed to protect children. But he turned out to be a monster. The arrest of the habitual paedophile 45-year-old Sohail Ayaz strengthens the conviction that we are living in an age when firemen start fires instead of putting them out. This maniac has a long nasty history of sexually abusing children. He was recently arrested in Islamabad and confessed to raping 30 children in different places of the country and uploading the videos of the assaults to the dark web.

Police investigations have revealed that he is a convicted paedophile deported from the UK and Italy. He was sentenced to four years in prison in the UK and for six months in Italy. The police said Ayaz was convicted of sexually assaulting minors in the UK. He was arrested in London in 2009 after thousands of child porn images were discovered in his home. He was deported from Italy where he was part of a Romanian child pornography ring. The police said Ayaz was a chartered accountant and an expert on the dark web. At present he was earning Rs300,000 a month for providing consultancy service to a K-P government department. This salary proved insufficient to this greedy monster for he was also engaged in the child sex trade. This remorseless sex maniac is full of vices. His parents and wife have severed relations with him because of his activities.

The police said around two weeks ago Ayaz abducted an 11-year-old boy at a tea stall in Islamabad where the boy worked. He took the boy to his home where he drugged him and raped him for four days. He also filmed the assault. When the boy returned home he could not speak about his ordeal for 15 days. After much persuasion by the family, the boy disclosed what had happened to him. Ayaz’s neighbours told the police that they saw him bringing children to his home several times. Such men pose a grave danger to society.
