7 January 2018: A UK court has sentenced Deukumar Limbu, a 43-year-old man of Nepalese origin, to 13 years in prison for raping and sexually assaulting a 22-year-old vulnerable man.
Mr Limbu, who was termed “sexual predator” by a district judge at Reading Crown Court, was recently convicted of raping the young man with learning difficulty, a news website reported on January 5.
The incident occurred in the early hours of June 6 after he got separated from his friends during a night out. The young man approached Mr Limbu for directions as he got lost. However, the Nepalese-origin man from Reading took advantage of the vulnerability of the young man dragging him into the nearby Beresford Road Playground where he committed “one count of sexual assault, two counts of anal rape and one of oral rape”, a UK news report said yesterday.
“You are a sexual predator, who would walk the streets of Reading in the early hours in the hope of coming across someone who you could have sex with in a public place,” readingchronicle.co.uk quoted the the district judge as saying during sentencing remarks.
The victim did not have money or telephone when he sought Mr Limbu’s help, it is understood. “The victim has suffered from flashbacks and nightmares following the ordeal, which featured unprotected sex after he had asked Limbu to stop,” the report further said.
Mr Limbu claims he is innocent and that the sex was consensual. The judge, on the other hand, deemed Mr Limbu “remorseless” and therefore he was a risk to young males in the UK community.
Mr Limbu’s wife lives in Hong Kong, the report added, and that he has a 17-year-old son.
