3 Years for Credit Card Fraud


Likely to of been transferred to another prison

Background Edit

Arun was born to Kenyan Asian parents – but was born a man. She changed her gender by the ‘op’ – something she kept secret until a stint in the block revealed her facial hear and the secret was out. On the outside it was easy – thanks to the new policy introduced by the Government, her passports and driving license were allowed to be registered under her new gender.

Sentence Edit

Arun – with Janine Nebeski – committed credit card fraud at the high street fashion store they worked in. Janine was given a long stretch of five years, because unlike Arun, she pleaded not-guilty.

Whilst in Larkhall Edit

Arun arrived at Larkhall with her friend Janine Nebeski (Nicola Stapleton), who blamed Arun for them being in prison. Arun did not like Larkhall's then Top Dog Natalie Buxton (Dannielle Brent), who ordered Janine to lure her into the library. When in the library, Natalie holds Arun, and gets Janine to hit her in the ribs with bricks inside a pair of tights. Arun confides in caring prison officer Di Barker (Tracey Wilkinson), who speaks to her husband Jim Fenner (Jack Ellis) about giving Arun an induction. Arun is later delighted when Sister Thomas Moore (Colette O'Neil) arrives at Larkhall, after being imprisoned for stealing from a child's orphanage. Arun later becomes desperate for mystery medication, and refuses to tell the prison officers about it. The truth is later discovered when Arun reveals to Sister Thomas Moore that she was actually a male-to-female transsexual, and the medication was actually hormone pills. After discovering that Sister Thomas was a child abuser, she reverts to being a Muslim, covering her face. Natalie does not take kindly to this and reveals her face to the entire prison, revealing a beard. The girls got mental and order for Arun to be taken to a men's prison, which is later decided by Neil Grayling (James Gaddas). Arun is later touched when new prisoner Pat Kerrigan (Liz May Brice) fights Natalie for the right for her to stay at Larkhall. Pat wins the fight so Arun is allowed to stay at Larkhall. Arun later finds herself falling in love with Pat, but isn't happy when new prisoner Sheena Williams (Laura Rogers) becomes good friends with Pat and later begins a relationship with her. Arun is last seen playing Prince Charming in the 2005 Christmas episode.
