Visakhapatnam, Jul 15 (ANI): Australian fugitive Paul Henry Dean alias Parvi Raj, who has been accused of sexually abusing orphans and street children in India, appeared before a local court in Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh on Thursday.

"Charges 377, 292...Passport Act and Foreigners Act," said Sai, Dean's counsel, in reply to a reporter's query.

The Visakhapatnam court, where the trial began in camera on July 8, adjourned the hearing till August 13.

Dean travelled on a fake passport under the name of Alan Herbert Rose, and arrived in India in early 1977. (ANI)
