Kathmandu, Apr 13 (Xinhua/UNI) Nepali police have arrested a French national on charge of involvement in pedophilia, police said here on Saturday.

A special team of Central Investigation Bureau of Nepal Police detained French man Georges Igor Simansky, aged 69, on the charge of sexually abusing two teenage boys.

"Simansky was arrested by the police when he was sleeping with a Nepali boy from a hotel at Thamel area on Friday," Superintendent of Nepal Police Uma Chaturbedi told Xinhua on Saturday.

"We have started the probe against the French man. The preliminary investigation suggests that he sexually abused two boys aged 14 and 15 tempting them by offering jobs in France and better education," Chaturbedi added.

"We have started investigation against the French old man, taking him into custody," he said.

Chaturbedi further said Simansky used to tempt teenagers by offering foreign trips and better education before sexually abusing them.

He will be prosecuted in accordance with prevailing laws in Nepal, police said. The French national entered Nepal for the first time in 2014 on tourist visa.

The Nepali police said that the French national had faced legal action over pedophilia charges back in 2000 in France.

This is not the first case of pedophilia to hit the Himalayan country and many foreigners have been arrested in recent years for sexually abusing and molesting under-aged children, police said.
