    Mumbai sodomy: British paedophiles surrender

    Mumbai: British paedophiles Duncan Grant and Allan Waters surrendered, on Monday, in the Mumbai sodomy case. Grant and Waters were convicted for sexual abuse of minor boys in Mumbai.

    They will be taken for medical examination and after that, the duo will be taken to the sessions court.

    The Supreme Court had on Friday restored the conviction of paedophiles Waters and Grant on charges of sexual abuse of minor boys living in shelters run by them in Mumbai and directed that they be taken into custody to undergo their remaining jail terms.

    The Sessions Court in 2006 had convicted Grant, Waters and William D'Souza, the duo's Indian aide who was a manager in the shelters-for-homeless run by them at three places in Mumbai, for sexually abusing minor boys at the Anchorage Shelter Home in Colaba.

    However in 2008, the Bombay High Court had acquitted them for lack of evidence but the Supreme Court restored their conviction.

    Waters will have to spend a year in jail, while Grant will have to be behind the bars for over two years. D'Souza had already served his sentence.
