The concern arising out of the current disclosures underline the fact that both the K-P authorities and World Bank committed neglect by failing to carry out security checks prior to hiring the accused on crucial positions.While disclosing the criminal history of the suspect, safety officials investigating the case said Ayaz was a former worker of their global non-profit organisation’Save the Children’.

He was arrested in London in 2009 at the charity’s headquarters after thousands of child porn images were discovered at his home. He moved to the UK on a two-year visa and at the time that he was hired by the charity, he was wanted in Italy in connection with a Romanian child sex ring.

After the arrest of Sohail Ayaz and his association with international porn ring, the World Bank eliminated the suspect’s name from the website, minding all relevant details that it contained regarding his participation in health services project in K-P.

On November 12, the Rawalpindi police arrested Ayaz over charges of abducting and sexually assaulting over 30 kids in various cities of the country.The defendant, who was a chartered accountant by profession, was the ring leader of an international group called’dark net’ whose members used to sexually abuse the children and upload their own movies on social media.
