Nepal adoptions chief raped and groomed orphans for prostitution, claims British teacher

A British woman who adopted a five year old blind girl from a Nepalese orphanage believes she uncovered an abuse and vice ring after her new daughter said she’d been raped every Saturday

The former head of international adoptions at Nepal’s largest orphanage is in custody over allegations that he raped young girls and groomed them as prostitutes in Kathmandu dance bars.

One of the alleged victims was a five-year-old blind girl who who was later adopted by a British teacher. Three others suffer from autism and severe learning difficulties.

According to the girls, they and two young boys at the orphanage were sexually abused and raped every Saturday when the adoptions chief, Rabin Shrestha and his friend throw ‘birthday’ and ‘wedding’ parties at Kathmandu's Bal Mandir children’s home.

The older girls, aged 13 and 14, were dressed in bridal gowns and then made to consummate their "marriages" with Shrestha and an associate. They were also forced to sexually abuse two four year old boys, it is claimed.

The allegations emerged after a British special needs teacher visited the orphanage and became concerned for a five-year-old blind girl who was neglected by staff. She and her niece were told not to hold the girl because her blindness would bring “bad karma”.

The teacher, who married a Nepali man in the early 1990s, later adopted the girl but during the adoption process a female "house mother" told her the girl had been bleeding heavily from her genitals.

The girl initially said she had fallen but later told her that she and Shrestha were lovers who fed each other plums. “’I know Rabin uncle and he is my lover, he feeds me plums and I feed him plums and he touches me and I touch him’, she told me”, the teacher told campaigners.

When her daughter was alone with him, he threw "birthday tea" parties at which he sexually abused and raped her, and when she was with the older girls he would stage "wedding ceremonies" in which they would be raped and forced to abuse two young boys.

The experience had left her daughter psychologically damaged. “She now thinks that every Saturday is her birthday”, she said, and is terrified by the sound of Nepali wedding bands. “If she hears the band in the street she covers her ears and crouches down on the ground and screams”, she told children’s rights activists.

The girls were regularly taken to "dance bars" in Kathmandu’s seedy Thamel red light district where they were given alcoholic drinks and groomed as prostitutes.

Mr Shrestha and another orphanage official were arrested and taken into custody last week after the campaign group Action for Child Rights International (ACR-Int) handed over a dossier of evidence to the police.

Superintendent Pitamber Adhikari of Nepal’s Central Investigation Bureau confirmed the arrests and said the two men are under investigation. They have denied the allegations against them while the Bal Mandir home rejected any connection with them. The suspects are expected to appear in court next week.

The British teacher said she could not comment on the case until after next week’s hearing.

Lieutenant-Colonel (Rtd) Philip Holmes, a leading anti-child abuse trafficking campaigner said the sexual abuse alleged at Bal Mandir was widespread in Nepal.

“This case is by no means unique and we will continue to support ACR-Int as it rescues children and brings paedophiles to justice”, he said.

This reminds me of an ultra patriotic friend who once told me "We don't have rapist and pedophile in Nepal. It all happens in America". I was dumfounded. Next time, I heard him accusing Americans who adopt Nepali children are making them sex slaves.
Let us be clear on this. We were and still now to many degree, a very protected and secluded society. There is no real journalism, there is no investigation, most things are swept under the carpet. But as we evolve as a society, you will start seeing all those things that had been hidden before. This is just the beginning. The sweet shop was making the product with dirty water from long way back, how can you be so surprised? You should be surprised if he was using the water from Mt.Everest.

Sad story, but I'm not surprised at all. I cannot imagine those kids and their life. May they find peace and a better life in the future. Let us spread the words around. I hope they all get adopted overseas. Who bring the attention and the accusation ? - a British woman (my friend surely would think she uses the baby for sex slave. LOL!) Kudos to her.
