“We have started investigation against the Canadian national,” Pushkar Karki, chief of the Central Investigation Bureau of Nepal Police, told the media.

Initial investigation has shown that the 60-year-old had been tempting children by offering them foreign trips and better education before sexually abusing them.

The police have rescued two children aged 12 and 14, who were sexually abused by Dalglish.

Dalglish has been running an NGO called Himalayan Community Foundation in Nepal since 2015.

Before coming to Nepal, Dalgish had worked for different UN agencies, including the UN-Habitat country representative for Afghanistan.

Peter Dalglish CM (born 20 May 1957), is a Canadian humanitarian and founder of the Street Kids International charity [procuring children for pedophile networks, human trafficking and organ trafficking?] and the Trails Youth Initiative program. Until 2015 he was the Country Representative for UN-Habitat in Afghanistan.

Dalglish was born in London, Ontario and attended Upper Canada College in Toronto from the age of 11 through 18. He graduated from Stanford University and then from Dalhousie Law School in 1983. Dalglish was called to the Bar in 1985.[1]

Dalglish is a leading authority on working children, street children, and war-affected children. After graduating from Dalhousie Law School, Peter Dalglish organized an airlift of food and medical supplies from Canada to Ethiopia. His encounter with emaciated and destitute refugees seared him for life.

Dalglish returned to Canada from Ethiopia and informed the senior partners of his law firm that he was giving up the profession to pursue a career alongside some of the world’s poorest children.
