Under preventive detention, rebellious criminals are placed behind the bar for 7 to 20 years for the protection of the public.

The High Court agreed with the prosecutor that the 60-year-old man should be expelled from society for the maximum period of time.

“It’s clear to me that the accused represent a real risk to vulnerable prepubertal girls,” said Judge Dedar Singh Gill.

“These girls need to be protected. Three young girls are suffering. No other woman needs to have the same experience in the hands of the accused.”

The judge said his denial of a man with pedophilia was a serious concern, as the first step in dealing with any disability is to recognize it.

Pre-judgment reports rated men at high risk of recidivism.

Currently, it is not possible to name a man because of the gag order to protect the identities of the two victims, ages 15 and 17.

In 2001, he was sentenced to 19 years in prison and 24 cane blows for statutory rape of his stepdaughter.

Rape began in 1996 when the girl was 6 to 7 years old and continued until she was 12 years old.

After being released from prison in 2013, he moved with his sister and husband, who lived with his three grandchildren and the victim’s mother.
