Worcester Park paedophile jailed

A Worcester Park paedophile has been jailed for attempting to meet a 13-year-old schoolgirl for sex, after being caught in a police sting in Ashtead.

Millan Rajasooriar, 34, of Hampton Road, pleaded guilty at Guildford Crown Court on October 26 to one count of attempting sexual communication with a child and one count of arranging or facilitating the commission of a child sex offence.

He was sentenced to two-and-a-half years’ imprisonment at a hearing 

On October 28 last year, Rajasooriar had travelled to Ashtead Train Station, where he expected to meet and have sex with a 13-year-old child, but was instead met by officers from the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit and arrested.

This arrest followed a proactive, intelligence led investigation relating to sexual offences with a child during October 2019.

A series of messages, which were of a sexual nature, were sent by Rajasooriar on WhatsApp, to what he thought was a 13-year-old girl. He used the messages to arrange a meeting with the child at the train station where he expected to have sex with her.

After his arrest, Rajasooriar’s phone was examined and was found to contain an indecent image of a child.

He was placed on the sex offenders register indefinitely and a further sexual harm prevention order to run in line with his registration period.
