Sex offender who was living in Surrey back in jail

Narindar Wasan breached his most recent probation order and was arrested Oct. 9.

Narindar Wasan

A convicted, high-risk sex offender who took up residence in Surrey when he was released from jail in early 2014 is back in custody.

Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann confirmed Narindar Pal Wasan was arrested Oct. 9 when officers were checking up on him.

While one of the conditions of a February probation order was to abide by a daily 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew, he was not home when police dropped in after 10 p.m.

Wasan, 51, showed up shortly thereafter and was arrested.

B.C. Corrections issued a public notice when Wasan was released from prison in January 2014, warning he had a “versatile” pattern of sex offences as he had assaulted females of all ages. His lengthy criminal record dates back to 1986.

He served jail time for attacking a 52-year-old woman in a Vancouver park and for a prior assault of a 10-year-old girl outside an elementary school in Burnaby.

He also has a conviction for fondling a teen’s breasts in a SkyTrain station elevator.

The most recent curfew break is not the first time Wasan has not abided by his court-ordered conditions.

Records show he has breached his recognizance on several prior occasions, including in April, May, November and December last year.

He was also charged and found guilty of uttering threats last December, and with fear of injury/damage by another person just months before that.

His next court date is Oct. 30 for the probation breach.

(When he was released in January 2014, B.C. Corrections mis-spelled his first name as Narinder).
