Father claims police covered up son’s murder by Westminster paedophile ring
19 November 2014
The father of a murdered boy has claimed that his son may have died at the hands of a Westminster paedophile ring and said Scotland Yard helped cover up the crime.
Vishambar Mehrotra, a retired magistrate whose eight-year-old son Vishal was killed in 1981, said he was contacted by a male prostitute at the time who said the boy may have been abducted and murdered by “highly placed” paedophiles linked to a now notorious guesthouse.
Mehrotra told the Telegraph that the prostitute alleged that judges and politicians were involved in a child abuse ring – but when he took a recording of the call to the police they did nothing about it.
The claims are the latest concerning an alleged establishment paedophile ring in Westminster in the 1970s and 80s. Scotland Yard, which has launched two linked investigations into the child abuse ring allegations, declined to comment on the latest claims.Mehrotra’s son Vishal was abducted as he walked home to Putney after watching the Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer ride to their wedding in a carriage on 29 July 1981.
