High-risk sex offender will soon live in Surrey

SURREY – Mayor Dianne Watts is outraged that high-risk sex offender Narinder Wasan plans to live in Surrey.

The Surrey RCMP issued the warning Friday afternoon, on behalf of BC Corrections.

“This is absolutely outrageous,” Watts said. She’s baffled why authorities have “let him loose” in a city with more children per capita than anywhere else in the province.

“I’m going to be taking this up with both the federal and provincial ministers,” she said. “I continue to say this, the safety of the general public has to come first.”

Wasan has a criminal history which includes sex assault, sex assault with a weapon, sexual interference, assault, failure to comply with a court order, uttering threats, breach of trust and drug offences, Cpl. Bert Paquet said.

“Wasan has maintained a versatile pattern of sexual offending, having offended against both women and girls in a sexual manner.”

Paquet described Wasan as a “very highrisk violent sex offender.”

It hasn’t been revealed where in Surrey he will live. Even Watts hasn’t been told.

Paquet said Wasan is subject to close monitoring by authorities.

Wasan is East Indian, bald, has brown eyes, is five feet seven inches tall and weighs 180 pounds.

He is subject to 20 court orders. He’s not to have any contact with any girl under 18 years old, and must not attend public parks, swimming pools, community centres, playgrounds or school grounds where girls can “reasonably be expected to be present.”

He’s not to have any weapons, drink alcohol or take drugs except that prescribed by a doctor or dentist, or engage with prostitutes. Police ask anyone who sees Wasan violating any of these conditions to call them.
