LONDON May 20: An Indian student who thought he was meeting 14-year-old girl for sex broke down and pleaded to be freed after being trapped by paedophile hunters in the UK. The Indian student was confronted by undercover group Guardians of the North before he offered to work for them in a bizarre bid to persuade them to let him go, Daily Mail reported.

The 27-year-old had been engaging in sexual chat on WhatsApp with whom he believed to be a child. Unbeknown to him, the youngster did not exist and he was actually in communication with paedophile hunters, who had disguised themselves as the underage girl.

The Indian student from Harrow, London, was arrested shortly afterwards and appeared at Newcastle Crown Court yesterday. He pleaded guilty to attempting to cause or incite a child into sexual activity and one count of attempted grooming.

The student was sentenced to 28 months imprisonment, made subject to a sexual harm prevention order for ten years and must sign the sex offender’s list.

The Indian student had been on his way to meet someone he thought was the child at Gateshead Metro Station but was confronted en route at the nearby interchange.

The group filmed the student’s reaction as he repeatedly says ‘please sir’, tells them he has a ‘good past’ in his native India and that he is ‘new’ to this country as a student.

The court heard the student initially denied meeting an underage girl for sex but then did make admissions, and said: ‘I’m sorry, I will not do it again let me go.’
