Child doctor guilty of sex assaults on dozen boys

By Neil Lancefield

A doctor working in paediatrics has admitted a string of child sex offences.

Raza Laskar (32), of Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester, pleaded guilty to 31 charges including sexual activity with a child and possessing extreme pornography.

Greater Manchester Police said the charges relate to offences against 12 boys under the age of 16. Laskar worked in hospitals across Greater Manchester before his arrest.

Detectives were alerted to his activity when more than 1,600 files suspected to contain indecent photographs of children were made available on a file-sharing website.

Investigators linked the IP address to Laskar's home and a search was carried out on May 2.

Officers seized a number of computers and data storage devices which were examined by GMP's hi-tech crime unit.

Laskar will be sentenced on January 9.
