Three brothers have been jailed for grooming and sexually abusing teenage girls in West Yorkshire.

Police said the offences took place between 1999 and 2004 and involved three girls who were aged between 13 and 15 at the time.

All the victims were described as "particularly vulnerable" at the time they met Zafar, Ansar and Mohammed Jabbar Qayum, from Dewsbury.

At Leeds Crown Court, all three were convicted of rape.

It follows an ongoing investigation into the sexual exploitation of teenage girls in north Kirklees between 1999 and 2012, police said.

One of the women came forward in 2017 to report what had happened to her, with officers praising the bravery of the victims for their "determination to seek justice".

  • Zafar Qayum, 42, from Dewsbury was sentenced to 30 years in jail for six counts of rape, five counts of indecent assault and three counts of aiding and abetting rape
  • Ansar Qayum, 45, from Dewsbury, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for four counts of rape and one offence of attempted indecent assault
  • Mohammed Jabbar Qayum, 41, from Dewsbury, was sentenced to 13 years for two offences of rape

Det Ch Insp Ian Thornes, of West Yorkshire Police, said: "The court heard some highly disturbing evidence of how poorly these young victims were treated with all three brothers being found guilty of encouraging the sexual abuse of victims.

"We welcome the substantial sentences handed down to them at court today and believe these reflect the gravity of the acts they committed."

East London man who posted his girlfriend’s nude photos online and set her clothes on fire admits harassment

An East London man who stalked his girlfriend and posted her nude photos online has pleaded guilty to harassment.

Anhar Hussain, 33, who has been remanded in custody, will be sentenced on December 19.

Snaresbrook Crown Court heard that his relationship with the woman which began in 2020 soured the following year. Following a heated argument, Hussain posted her nude photos online and to her family after cropping himself out of the images.

The incident triggered outrage between Hussain and the woman and her family because of their cultural and personal beliefs, the court heard.

Hussain later created a fake social media account in her name and began communicating with her family when she was no longer in contact with her family.

She discovered this when she spoke with her mother in April this year. As she was told to leave her family home, she moved in with Hussain at a Romford address, where he subjected her to coercion, shouting at and screaming into her face. Hussain would also keep his girlfriend locked in the house when he went out.

Hussain once threw the woman’s clothes out of the flat and set them on fire. As she moved to another house, Hussain began to harass the woman by constantly calling her.

He also tried to manipulate her in a bid to get her to return to him. She eventually approached the police.

Investigating officer Cathleeya Kittisara said the woman showed sheer courage and unwavering strength as she supported the police during the protracted enquiry.

“She has moved from her position of loss of faith to now attempting to move on, with her perpetrator no longer harming her,” Kittisara said.

Although Hussain was bailed out twice, he showed no regard for the justice system and continued to harass and threaten the woman, the officer said.

“It has undoubtedly been a huge challenge for her, facing turmoil in her relationships with her family, whilst all the while being tortured physically and emotionally, and in fear for her life,” Kittisara said.

Edinburgh cabbie who asked women for sex after they couldn’t pay fare has conviction reinstated

Faisal Aziz will now have to sign the Sex Offenders Register as his appeal against his conviction is dismissed.

By: Chandrashekar Bhat

The conviction of a Scottish taxi driver who asked two young women for sex after their failure to pay the fare upfront has been reinstated.

Faisal Aziz will now have to sign the Sex Offenders Register as his appeal against his conviction by a lower court is dismissed.

The women, aged 18 and 21, hailed him when he was driving his Volkswagen Passat in Edinburgh city centre in the early hours of October 5, 2019. Aziz pulled up and picked them up despite his licence being restricted to pre-booked passengers. But when the duo said they could pay the fare only after reaching their destination, the cabbie said, “What else can you offer…sex?”

Following the argument, he drove off leaving the passengers in an empty street but the duo managed to snap a photo of the car’s number plate.

In August this year, appeal Sheriff Alasdair MacFadyen ruled that Aziz’s remark had not been sexually motivated and reduced his conviction to a breach of the peace.

As the case was taken to the High Court appeal court, Lord Justice General Carloway disagreed with MacFadyen’s ruling that the taxi driver’s proposition was “different from obtaining sexual gratification.”

Lord Carloway said there was a “significant sexual aspect” to what Aziz had told the passengers and “that is exactly what his request was.”

He said young women who have been drinking are entitled to protection from “predatory males seeking sexual favours in exchange for fares”.

“Whether the expectation was for immediate, or deferred, gratification does not matter. The only defence open would have been to raise the issue of a reasonable belief that the complainers consented”, he said in a written summary, reported by the Daily Record.

“That might have been open had the communication been made in a social setting and between persons known to each other. It could hardly have been available in a situation involving strangers in the relationship of potential taxi driver and passenger in the public street where the passenger’s obvious desire is to go home and not to indulge in sexual activity,” Lord Carloway said.

Ex-Met officer who paid woman for sex during Covid lockdown barred from future policing roles

Hassan Mahmood pleaded guilty to breach of rules and was fined £660.


By: Chandrashekar Bhat

A former Met Police officer, found guilty of misconduct during pandemic restrictions, has been barred from returning to any policing role.

Hassan Mahmood visited a woman in her house in Mitcham in south London in January 2021 and paid her for sex. He was fined £660 at the City of London Magistrates’ Court earlier after admitting to having participated in a gathering of two or more people in violation of Covid regulations.

The breach took place when the UK was passing through the second wave of the pandemic, exerting pressure on the health system.

He resigned from the force in November last year and Scotland Yard said he would now be added to the “Barred List held by the College of Policing.”

Anyone appearing on the list cannot be employed by police, local policing bodies, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services or the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

A sex offender discovered by police with a young girl in a hotel room after a tip-off from a member of the public has been jailed for nine years. Tahmid Majid, 24, was caught after he and another man were seen talking to the girl in a passageway near Grantham train station on June 26, 2022 and were trying to persuade her to go with them on a train to Manchester.

A conversation about how the girl could earn large sums of money and would be given a house to live in was overheard and the witness called Lincolnshire Police. Officers attended the area and established the girl had left in a taxi with the two men. Shortly afterwards, they tracked her and Majid to a hotel room and he was arrested.

Enquiries revealed he had been travelling from London to engage in sexual activity with the young girl for more than two years. Majid, of Whitehorse Road, Croydon, had denied two offences of sexual activity with a child between February 2020 and June 2022.
