Gang who repeatedly raped 14-year-old girl jailed for 66 years

A GROOMING gang repeatedly raped a 14-year-old girl over two years of sick abuse.

Nazir Khan, 30, Kamran Hussain, 29, Omar Safdar, 30, Imran Sabir, 42, Hassan Basharat, 32, Barber Hussain, 36, and two others drove the girl to parks, flats and isolated places where they raped her.

They drugged her, plied her with alcohol and abused her systematically in Keighley, West Yorkshire, between 2008 and 2009 until she was 16.

The woman said on Friday: “The driving force for me to keep going through all of this was so that it prevents it from happening to other people, and also it might help other people come forward.”

Eight men were found guilty on 23 counts of rape and two of conspiracy to rape at Bradford crown court last year. 

Six were jailed for a total of 66 years and two are yet to be sentenced. 

The Crown Prosecution Service’s Ed Hulbert said: “Eight men cynically manipulated and ruthlessly exploited a young and vulnerable girl. 

“The victim has displayed immense courage and resilience in reporting these crimes and helping us to build a robust case to put before a jury. Our thoughts remain with her.”

Nazir Khan, of Keighley, got 12 years and an extended eight-year licence period. Kamran Hussain, of Keighley, got five years.

Omar Safdar, of Oldham, Greater Manchester, Imran Sabir, of Keighley, and Hasan Basharat, of Keighley, all got 12 years.

Baber Hussain, 36, of Bradford got 13 years.

Det Insp Alan Weekes said: “I would like to praise the victim for coming forward and reporting these offences, for her patience while the criminal investigation has been ongoing and her courage in giving evidence in court.

“The abuse she endured robbed her of her childhood and I hope seeing all of these men sent to prison today for these horrendous offences she was subjected to will allow her to start to look forward to the future.”
