    Ten-strong sex gang that preyed on 'vulnerable' teen girl in Rochdale jailed for total of 127 years

    A TEN-STRONG grooming gang that preyed upon an ‘extremely vulnerable’ teenage girl have been jailed for a total of 127 years.

    The sex beasts are the latest to be caged for abuse in Rochdale Gtr Manchester.

    Their imprisonment comes after their victim walked into a police station in 2012 after a previous gang of Asian men were jailed for grooming white girls for sex in the town.

    She told officers that from the age of 14 she too had been repeatedly sexually groomed by a large number of men.

    She also said that "hundreds'' of men would ring her up, wanting her to go out and have sex with them.

    The offences, which also involved other under-age victims, took place in Rochdale and the surrounding area, mainly between 2005 and 2010.

    Nine of the defendants were sentenced at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court today, while another man was jailed last year.

    The white victim with learning difficulties was said by prosecutors to be an "extremely vulnerable young woman" who had endured "a very difficult home life".

    She gave evidence in two separate trials which lasted a total of 15 weeks.

    Seven other complainants, who were aged 13 to 22 at the time, also came forward to testify which secured convictions against a number of the defendants, who were all of Pakistani or Bangladeshi heritage.

    Afraz Ahmed, 33, was jailed for a total of 25 years after he was found guilty of various sexual offences, including rape, conspiracy to rape and sexual activity with a child, in relation to five underage victims.

    A 40-year-old man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was jailed for 23 years after he was convicted of rape and attempting to abduct a child in relation to three victims. He will serve an additional eight years on extended licence when he is released.

    Choudry Ikhalaq Hussein, 38, was jailed for 19 years in his absence for rape, sexual activity with a child and conspiracy to rape.

    Hussein is believed to be currently in Pakistan after he absconded during his trial.

    Rehan Ali, 27, was imprisoned for seven years and Kutab Miah, 35, for nine years after both were found guilty of rape and sexual activity with a child.

    Abid Khan, 39, was jailed for six-and-a-half years and Mohammed Zahid, 55, for five years after both were found guilty of sexual activity with a child.

    Mohammed Dauood, 38, was jailed for 16 years after he was convicted of offences in relation to two victims including rape, sexual activity with a child and sexual assault.

    David Law, 46, was jailed for 11 years after he was convicted of conspiracy to rape.

    A tenth defendant, Mahfuz Rahman, 29, of HMP Garth, pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to three counts of sexual activity with a child. He was jailed for five-and-a-half years last September.

    The main victim in the case, who is now aged in her mid-20s, watched on from the public gallery.

    Her victim personal statement was not read out at her request.

    Ahmed was the first defendant sentenced and looked dumbfounded when he was told how long he would have to serve in prison.

    The public gallery broke into applause and then Ahmed motioned to the judge to ask if he could say something but he was ordered to leave the dock.

    Judge John Potter said: "Each of the victims of this offending gave evidence at one trial or the other.

    "They were subjected to cross-examination which suggested they were not telling the truth. Each dealt with this ordeal impressively.

    "I have little doubt that each of the victims have been affected by your abuse of them to some degree, some far more than others."

    He said it was testament to their "bravery, courage and fortitude" they had given evidence in court despite the "appalling way" they were treated.

    Two of the victims, he said, had suffered psychological harm.

    The convictions came as a result of Operation Doublet - a police investigation into child sexual exploitation mainly in the Rochdale area - set up in the wake of the separate mass grooming trial at Liverpool which put the spotlight on the town.

    Senior investigating officer Det Chief Insp Jamie Daniels said: "I want to commend the victims for the immense bravery they have shown."

    Richard Scorer, from law firm Slater and Gordon, who represents one of the victims, said: "In 20 years of acting for victims in cases of this nature, these are some of the most appalling, sadistic and vile crimes that I have ever encountered.

    "These men systematically groomed, abused and raped vulnerable teenage girls to satiate their sexual desires.

    "We welcome the sentences that have been imposed. They reflect the horrific nature of their crimes and show that men who perpetrate these appalling offences will be hunted down, prosecuted and jailed.

    "I believe there are many more victims of these sorts of crimes and I hope they will come forward in the knowledge that men who commit these crimes will be brought to book."

    Where troubles melt like lemon drops
    One wonders if say the Oxfordshire police spent the same amount of energy, on similar allegations, the offenders religion would be so identified?

    Or is it only Northerners or those living in London who are the countries elected representatives who commit these types of offences?

    Maybe the offenders were "exceptional" foreigners on holiday/only shore term visitors and, as such, may disregard UK/EU laws they don't agree with.
    A tray full of GOLD is not worth a moment in time.

    They will get halal food, prayer mats, Korans and shitters facing away from Mecca and can spend their time spreading their evil beliefs, apart from the one whitey that is. Light sentences, but they always add them up to make it look better, 127 years each would have been better.
