EXCLUSIVE: Toronto police constable Sameer Kara: CityNews investigation

Three suspended Toronto police officers have been charged with sexual assault, following a story that CityNews broke first two weeks ago.

The officers, Sameer Kara, Leslie Nyznik and Joshua Cabero have been charged with sex assault and gang sex assault.

In a story CityNews broke two weeks ago, sources say the three officers allegedly sexually assaulted a parking enforcement officer in mid-January.

Constable Sameer Kara appeared in an TV documentary film about dating in the South Asian community.

“A lot of women say the same stuff,” he said during a speed dating event.

“I’m looking to get married. My parents expect me to be there already. I know what I want. Now, does what I want actually exist? I don’t know.”

In the film, he was 26 and described what he wanted in a potential partner.

“Family values, respect, someone that has a career or who’s in school who’s trying to get a career. Someone in the South Asian community because at the end of the day, it’s easier, you have things in common. There’s nothing wrong to marry outside of the community, but I’m looking to stay in the box.”

“Am I looking for the modern type? Yes and no. I want someone that has the old family values and culture that my parents were brought up with.”

Kara was also involved in a 2010 arrest of three people armed with loaded handguns in Toronto.
