Haroon Kasir was arrested on suspicion of the possession of indecent images of children

The former manager of a guest house at the centre of an alleged VIP paedophile ring has been arrested.

Haroon “Harry” Kasir, 69, was held in west London on Tuesday on suspicion of the possession of indecent images of children.

He has been bailed until September.

Kasir is a former manager of the Elm Guest House in Barnes, south-west London.

A paedophile ring with high-powered establishment links was said to operate there in the 1980s.

The arrest was the third carried out by Metropolitan Police detectives under Operation Fernbridge.

John Stingemore, 70, was arrested at his home in East Sussex earlier this year.

He ran Grafton Close, the Richmond Council ­children’s home from where it is alleged that boys in care were taken to Elm Guest House.

The third man arrested, Roman Catholic priest Father Tony McSweeney, 66, was held at his home in Norfolk.

Stingemore and McSweeney are also ­currently on bail.
