Paul Meekin

Fugitive Paul Meekin, 40, has been investigated by police in Britain and India, where he was due in court to face claims he engaged in online sex chats with a 13-year-old. A British teacher who bragged about teaching Harry Potter star Daniel Radliffe has fled to Kuwait to dodge a child abuse trial.

When he was arrested in January 2012 he was headteacher at the £1,000-a-term Trio World School in Bangalore, an international school used by British expats.

“We are deeply shocked and saddened to state an unfortunate issue wherein on Friday, 20th January 2012, a parent approached the school administration with a complaint that the headmaster, Dr Paul Meekins, was allegedly having inappropriate chatting session with the pupil. Immediately the management convened an emergency meeting and decided to suspend him from his current responsibilities forthwith pending investigation not withstanding his past laurels. Thereafter, a police investigation was initiated and we have extended full cooperation to the police authorities,” it said.

“It is said that Meekin used a fake passport and fled to Kuwait,” City Police Commissioner M N Reddi told Deccan Herald. “We have decided to approach the Interpol and issue a red corner notice against him. We are thoroughly probing the matter. We will bring him back to India and produce him before court,” Reddi added. A senior officer said that the matter will come up for hearing in the magistrate court on January 24, 2015.

Meekin hails from Southport, Lancshire, and was a head teacher at the Trio World School in the City, an international school favoured by British expats. He was arrested by the Kodigehalli police in January 2012 after the parents of a UK-based boy lodged a complaint against him. They accused him of passing lewd comments on their son’s Facebook page. He had even taken the boy to Goa without the parents’ knowledge.

The school had dismissed him on January 23 after a case was registered against him. He had submitted a PhD certificate awarded by the University of Sheffield to seek employment.

During the probe, it came to light that the certificate was fabricated. The school management, where he is currently employed, confirmed his identity through a photograph.
