A pensioner has been jailed for sexually abusing two young children in the 1990s. The victims came forward and told police they were assaulted by Mukhtar Singh Bajwa between 1990 and 1995.

A specialist team of detectives from the West Midlands force’s Public Protection Unit began an investigation. Bajwa, now 67, was found guilty of two counts of gross indecency and four counts of indecent assault at an earlier hearing at The Park Hall Hotel, Wolverhampton.

He was jailed for nine years. Survivors of sexual abuse are protected by law and have life-long anonymity.

 

Det Con Katie Kings said: “The children involved in this case are now adults and have showed immense bravery in coming forward. Thanks to them we have been able to bring Bajwa to justice more than 30 years since the offences happened.

“We will always investigate allegations of historical abuse no matter how long ago it happened and I hope this conviction proves that it is never too late to tell your story.”
