HYDERABAD: Smartly dressed and soft spoken, James Joseph always wears a smile, unlike several other auto-drivers in the city. His minimum education qualification did not stop him from learning spoken English and using it to his advantage. An expert at sensing a woman’s pulse, the 31-year old emanates positive vibes to women in distress.

Displaying no regrets, James is learnt to have questioned during his interrogation: “If I am alive even after being HIV positive and I enjoy my life, those women who could get AIDS from me would also handle themselves. Are they not enjoying life like me?”

According to M Ravi Chandan Reddy, assistant commissioner of police, he has not thought about the gravity of the crime he has committed. Asked why he would not use any protection, the accused told the police: “It is not fun that way.”

Apart from pursuing women, he also told the police about instances where he trapped women and extorted money from them. The accused has revealed details of his victims and how he has trapped as many as 300 women.

“He has a very impressive way of carrying himself around. There are many factors involved in his addiction to sex. Firstly, he has no one to take care of. Then, he is not educated enough to understand the gravity of being an AIDS patient. Though he is under medication, he does not care much about it,” added the ACP. 

With no serious charges against him, the police believe the day is not far when the accused will go back to his old habits. “We will keep a watch on him after his release,’’  Ravi Chandan Reddy added.
