Around 150 boys and girls were sadistically abused and tortured by him. He is a wanted criminal in India for past 14 years. Last month, a court ruled that Varley was suffering from dementia, based on a report by his neuropsychologist, and that it was "unjust" and "oppressive" to return him to India for trial.
An arrest warrant for Varley was issued in 1996 by India, but he was never caught. Indian authorities and prosecuters were repeatedly slammed for their inability to arrest Varley and produce him for trial.
To escape arrest, Varley shuttled between Thailand, Slovenia, Mexico and Britain. However, Thailand authorities revoked his visa and sent him back to the UK.
Presently, a CBI team is in London, closely monitoring progress of the case.
