A PAEDOPHILE who repeatedly raped a seven-year-old boy is being deported back to India and stripped of his British citizenship in the first case of its kind.

The man, who can only be identified as RSD, came to the UK from India in 1997 and was grated British citizenship six years later. But in 2011 he was convicted of 23 counts of sexual abuse of “a male child within the family”, court documents revealed. The monster was sentenced to 23 years in prison for grooming and raping the boy between 2003 and 2010 and was ordered to sign the sexual offenders’ register for life. But now, the Government has removed his citizenship on the grounds that he lied about the fact he was sexually abusing a child when he applied to be a UK citizen.

The man won his appeal against the decision, but in what is believed to have been the first case of its kind, a judge stepped in and ruled in favour of the Government, stripping the beast of his British passport.

Yesterday evening, child abuse lawyers praised the ruling.

Richard Scorer, a specialist abuse lawyer at law firm Slater & Gordon, said: “This decision is to be welcomed as a statement of the seriousness with which grooming is viewed by the courts. Any court decision which highlights and reinforces the penalties for this kind of will help to send out the message that perpetrators will face serious consequences.”

Former Home Secretary Amber Rudd, who also dealt with the case before Savid Javid took over her role, told RSD in February: “Given the fact that you began your sexual offences in 2003, prior to lodging your naturalisation application, and continued to do so many years after you were granted British citizenship, you were clearly not of good character. It was only because you concealed your sexual assaults that led to your application succeeding.”

Judge Pitt, sitting in the Upper Tribunal of the Immigration and Asylum Chamber, said: “It is my conclusion that the appellant obtained naturalisation in 2004 by deliberately concealing material facts.”

The news comes after the Rochdale child abuse scandal in which three men, Abdul Aziz, Adil Khan and Qari Abdul Rauf, are facing deportation to Pakistan for their role in a grooming ring that pumped young and vulnerable girls with drink and drugs so they could “pass them around” for sex.
