KATHMANDU, July 23: Police have arrested Australian national Berryman Thomas Alfred on the charge of sexually abusing two teenage boys in Pokhara on Tuesday.

Acting on a tip-off, a team of Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) detained Alfred from his rented room located at the Dihiko Patan area in Pokhara Sub-Metropolitan City at around 11 am.

Information officer at the CIB Dipak Regmi told Republica Online that the Australian national was arrested for allegedly abusing two boys aged 14 and 15 in his rented room sexually.

"The CIB team has launched an investigation into the alleged case," he said.

Alfred, 63, is a paraglider with a private paragliding company in Pokhara. It is learned that he had been staying in the city for almost three years.

Earlier this month, Kavrepalanchowk District Court had slapped nine years imprisonment on a former senior United Nations official Peter Dalglish for sexually assaulting children in Nepal.
