After 17 years on the lam, an Indian immigrant to Canada and one of Quebec’s most wanted alleged criminals has finally been arrested, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is being credited for assisting in his capture.
“An international arrest warrant was issued for Parthasarthie Kapoor, 47, in connection with a string of sexual assaults and child pornography charges,” according to Canada’s Global News. “Kapoor was arrested on Monday at Newark Airport as he was waiting to fly to India, his home country.”
Between 1998 and 2003, Kapoor allegedly sexually assaulted five boys between the ages of seven and 14, luring them into his home where he allegedly committed his heinous crimes.
He currently awaits extradition to Canada after a New Jersey court appearance.
“The arrest of parthasarthie kapoor was made possible thanks to the joint work of the sexual assault section of the spvm, the royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Canada Border Services Agency, the U.S. customs and border protection And from interpol,” Service de Police de la Ville de Montreal (SPVM) said on its Facebook page.
“The U.S. Department of justice’s office of International Affairs of the department’s criminal division and the U.S. lawyer’s office for the district of new jersey are currently dealing with extradite procedures,” the post continued.
