Murray Ward, 54, is accused of harassing three children on Saturday night at the National Association for the Blind (NAB) where he has been a regular donor and visitor for the past eight years

A British charity volunteer has been arrested on suspicion of sexually harassing blind children at an Indian care home.

Murray Ward, 54, is accused of harassing three youngsters at the National Association for the Blind (NAB) in New Delhi on Saturday.

Ward was said to be a regularly donor and visitor to the care home over the past eight years.

The 54-year-old, from Cirencester, Gloucestershire, was taken into custody on Sunday after staff spotted him allegedly sitting in an 'objectionable position' with children and informed police.

Ward had worked for the Indian telecoms company Sterlite Technologies in Gurugram, 20 miles southwest of New Delhi, until April 2017.

Two months previously, police said he suffered a paralytic attack for which he is still undergoing treatment.

During their investigation police seized Ward's mobile phone and claimed to find "objectionable video clips" on his laptop.

Ishwar Singh, Deputy Commissioner of Police for South Delhi said: "A call was received at RK Puram police station on September 3 at noon regarding sexual harassment of minor kids at the National Association for the Blind."

He added Ward is due to appear before a court.

According to its website, the NAB was established in 1952 to promote the welfare of visually impaired people.

A Foreign Office spokesperson said they were investigating the reports.
