Toronto, Feb 4 IANS | 9 months ago

An Indian-origin man in Canada, who tried to lure a 13-year-old girl on the internet for sex in 2010, was sentenced to nine months in prison and three years' probation.


Yashandeep Dhillon from Regina in Saskatchewan province was sentenced Monday to nine months in prison and three years' probation for using social media to lure a minor girl for a sexual purpose, the CTV news reported.

Dhillon was found guilty in October 2013.

Dhillon arrived in Canada in 2010 from India and logged on to an internet chatroom called Edmonton Locals and found someone, who identified herself as a 13-year-old girl from Saskatchewan.

Between Oct 15 and Dec 17 of 2010, the messages took on a sexual overtone, and Dhillon expressed his sexual desire to the girl.

On Dec 17, 2010, Dhillon arranged to meet the girl at a bus stop in Regina.

There, a police officer, who was actually posing as the young girl, was waiting and Dhillon was arrested.

He will be deported to India after the completion of his sentence.
