Indian-origin woman in UK jailed for sex assaults on elderly

London: A 25-year-old Indian-origin care home worker has been jailed for 10 years by a British court for sexually assaulting elderly patients, including a 101-year-old woman.

Christina Sethi targeted three victims, one male and two female, at a care home in Devon, south-west England, between January 2014 and May this year.

She also filmed the assaults on her mobile phone before sharing them with her boyfriend, Plymouth Crown Court was told during her trial.

Sethi deliberately targeted victims suffering from dementia, the oldest of whom was a 101-year-old female. One of her victims has died since the incident.

During the sentencing yesterday, judge Richard Stead said she had committed “horrific abuse of three vulnerable and elderly victims who were in a care home under your care”.

“You humiliated three elderly people who trusted you,” he said.

Devon and Cornwall Police described Sethi’s actions as “incomprehensible”.

Detective Inspector Ed Wright said, “Sethi committed crimes that most ordinary people could never comprehend.

“This depraved individual carried out shocking acts of abuse and grossly abused her position at the care home. She committed these atrocious acts on the very people she had been trusted to care for and targeted their vulnerabilities in order to satisfy her own sexual deviance.”

“She has shown herself to be selfish, chilling and manipulative, committing an abhorrent breach of trust and responsibility,” Wright said.

The abuse came to light when a man who knew Sethi bought a computer from her and found deleted films of the sexual assaults which he reported to police.

The?video files showed her sexually abusing two elderly female residents, one of whom was recorded helplessly asking, “What are you doing to me?”.

Sethi sent the footage to her boyfriend, who she said during police interviews she loved and would do anything for.

A 32-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit sexual assault has since been released without charge.
