Date: February 29, 2004

In the second incident of its kind in two years, the chief of a home for orphans was arrested for sexually abusing two minor inmates.

The Bhimili rural police arrested N John Moses, 53, for abusing the girls at Cavalry Children Home at Tagarapuvalasa, 20 km from here on the highway to Bhimili, on Saturday. The identity of the girls is being concealed.

In 2001, Vizag was shaken by  Parvi Raj, alias Tatagaru alias Allan Rose who was arrested for paedophile activities. He was arrested in August 21 of that year near Puri in Orissa. The hearing of the case of Tatagaru, an Australian, is on at the third metropolitan magistrate's court in Visakhapatnam.

Inspector P Ravi Verma, who arrested Moses following a complaint from a woman lawyer, told Chronicle that Moses resigned as a pharmacist at the Chittivalasa Jute Mill hospital in 1992 and opened an orphanage at Balajinagar in Tagarapuvalasa.

His orphanage housed 14 boys and girls in the age group of four and 13 years. "The orphan home was not recognised by the government," Verma said. Following the incident, Moses' victims and the other children have been send to the Social Welfare department home here. "Two months ago, Moses began sexually abusing two girls, aged 13 and 11, after showing them pornographic movies at his home in the absence of his wife. He used to threaten them against revealing it to others. Both the girls were used as domestic help," Verma said.

Unable to bear his torture, the girls ran away to the house of an aunt of one of them Yendada in Vizag and narrated their trauma. The aunt informed M Rani, a practicing lawyer. Rani took the victims to the Bhimili police station and lodged a complaint following which they police arrested Moses.

Both the girls were sent to Bhimili government hospital for medical examination and later handed over to the Social Welfare Department. Moses was sent to King George Hospital for conducting a potency test.
