Takeaway driver is jailed for sex attack on 12-year-old girl he then abandoned in remote country lane

Khawaja Iqbal was jailed for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl

A takeaway delivery driver has been jailed for a sex attack on a 12-year-old girl.
Khawaja Iqbal, 41, lured the youngster into his car with alcohol and cigarettes before driving her to a secluded country lane and sexually assaulting her.
He then drove off leaving her in the road.
Iqbal, of Whinstone Way, ChaddertonOldham, admitted the assault at an earlier hearing and was today sentenced to five years in prison at Manchester Minshull Street Court.
He was also ordered to sign the sex offenders register.
His conviction followed a tireless investigation into the assault by Greater Manchester Police.
Just before midnight on August 25 last year, Iqbal, who was working for a takeaway in Hollingworth, Tameside, spotted the girl walking alone in the Mottram area.
The girl got into his car and he drove to a garage where the vehicle - but not the registration number - was caught on CCTV.
The assault was reported by the girl and DNA evidence recovered, but an offender could not be identified.
GMP managed to identify the car as a Nissan Micra and narrowed it down to 192 vehicles in the area.
The owners were located and interviewed and Iqbal was forensically linked to the crime.
During his police interview, he denied the assault claiming the victim had asked for a lift , the cigarettes and alcohol - and had planted the DNA ‘maliciously.’
Det Sgt Dan Appleby, from the ‘Phoenix’ child sexual exploitation unit at Tameside, said: “Iqbal preyed on a lone, young and vulnerable girl, who he subjected to a sexual assault before leaving her stranded in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night.
“Child sexual exploitation is a heinous crime and identifying and bringing to justice Iqbal and those of his ilk is a priority for the force.
"As reflected in this case, we will do whatever it takes to track down those that offend against vulnerable children.
“Iqbal in particular is an vile individual who sought to put the blame on the victim, going so far as to suggest he had been framed by her.
“It was only in the face of such compelling evidence that he finally accepted his guilt and today justice has prevailed.”

Mikaeel Kular: Mum admits beating tot to death for being sick after eating ice cream

    THE court heard how Rosdeep Adekoya inflicted more than 40 wounds on her son before allowing him to suffer and die after three days in agony.
Mikaeel Kular was left to die over three days before Adeyoka dumped his body
TRAGIC Mikaeel Kular’s mum beat him to death because he was sick after eating ice cream, a court heard yesterday.
Rosdeep Adekoya battered Mikaeel viciously and repeatedly, inflicting more than 40 wounds.
She allowed him to die in agony over three days in January, then dumped his body and reported him missing, setting off a huge search.
Mum-of-five Adekoya, 34, yesterday admitted the culpable homicide of her three-year-old son. The Crown dropped a charge of murder against her, saying they accepted she had no intention to kill.
The High Court in Edinburgh was told he was left to suffer because she refused to get him medical help, fearing her cruelty would be exposed.
After his death, Adekoya stuffed his body in a suitcase and drove to near her former home in Kirkcaldy, Fife, where she dumped it.
Then she lied to police that he had gone missing from their flat in Edinburgh.
As they launched a huge hunt for him, aided by hundreds of concerned volunteers, Adekoya played the part of the desperate mum to perfection.
But after Mikaeel’s body was found, police found a series of chilling internet searches on the unemployed mum’s mobile phone.
They included: “I find it hard to love my son”, “I always feel angry with my son”, “I love all my children except one”, “I don’t love one of my children”, “Why am I so aggressive with my children?” and “Why does my 3-year-old son eat so much?”

Mikaeel Kular: Hours after shooting this happy video his mum beat tot so badly he died from his injuries 

On January 12, the day she launched her initial assault on Mikaeel, she searched: “Get rid of bruises – wikihow.”
It emerged yesterday that Mikaeel had been in foster care twice, once because social services were concerned he had been left alone at home.
But he returned to his mother’s care in August last year - just five months before she killed him.
Fife Council announced yesterday that a serious case review was being held to determine if more could have been done to save Mikaeel.
Prosecutors accepted yesterday that Adekoya’s attacks on her son fell short of the wicked recklessness required for murder in law.
The crime of culpable homicide has a maximum sentence of life in prison, which is mandatory for murder. But in practice, sentences vary widely.
Adekoya was remanded in custody until sentencing on August 25.
Alex Prentice QC, prosecuting, said that on January 12, Adekoya had taken Mikaeel and his twin sister Ashika out with a friend for a meal in a Nando’s restaurant.
Prentice said Mikaeel had “misbehaved in a minor manner” and, in his mother’s opinion, he had overeaten.
When they got home, he vomited in his bedroom as he was getting changed to go to bed.
The prosecutor said: “The accused lost her temper and both smacked him and struck him on the body with her clenched fist.”
Mikaeel was put to bed but was sick again and she hit him on the head and body with an open hand and a fist. The little boy was changed again and put to bed.
The child was sick a third time and Adekoya lost her temper once more and dragged him through to the bathroom, clutching his upper arms.
She showered him in the bath and beat him heavily on his back with her hand and fist as he lay over the edge of the bath.
Prentice said: “It is likely that the internal damage was inflicted during this last beating, since the resultant bruising to the back is extensive and indicates the use of more than moderate force in several blows.”
Mikaeel was put back to bed and in the morning Adekoya saw obvious bruising on his arms and body. He was sick again and was sent back upstairs to change.
As he walked away from his mother, she hit him on his already injured back with the heel and flat of her hand.
She kept him at home from nursery partly because of the bruising and because he had vomited again.
Prentice said: “Through the persistent vomiting it was clear that he was unwell. The accused knew she should take him to see a doctor but because of the bruising she did not.”
On the morning of January 15, a friend phoned to set up a meeting with Adekoya.
She said they could “if wee spicy heid (which Adekoya called Mikaeel in reference to his spiky hair because she could not pronounce the word spiky) doesn’t throw a tantrum about going to nursery”.
The truth, said Prentice, was that Mikaeel’s condition had worsened and he had died in the night.
The prosecutor said: “The accused had subjected Mikaeel to a severe beating by punching him and causing him to strike a hard surface such as the edge of the bath.
“He would have been in significant pain but was put to bed.
“As will be apparent from the pathology, the pain would have increased significantly while Mikaeel became dangerously ill and finally died as a result of the injuries inflicted upon him.”
On January 15, Adekoya drove to Fife and dumped the suitcase in which she had put her son’s body at the rear of her sister’s house in Kirkcaldy, her own former home.
She hid it under a bush and tried to conceal it with bushes before ringing 999 to report her son missing. She claimed Mikaeel had got out of bed, climbed on a stool, unlocked the front door of the family flat and left and that he was a missing person.
Adekoya, who enjoyed an active social life in Edinburgh and mixed with known drug dealers, spoke to police several times while the hunt for Mikaeel was going on.
It was only on her third interview that she cracked and admitted to police that her son was dead.
Adekoya broke down and told the officers: “It was an accident. I panicked. I am going to go to the jail.”
Police found the body and she was detained and charged with murdering Mikaeel and trying to cover up his death.
The boy was found to have more than 40 separate injuries and died from blunt force trauma to the abdomen.
He also suffered peritonitis which was caused by an injury to the back of the bowel which ruptured.
Prentice said: “Although peritonitis presents a danger to life, death can be prevented with early medical intervention.
“If medical assistance had been called for, death might not have resulted.”
The prosecutor also told the court Mikaeel had been a healthy, happy little boy. He added: “While he was subject to social work
involvement, this had ceased by the time of his death.”
Announcing their joint review with Edinburgh Council and other agencies, Fife child protection committee chairman John Myles said: “The review will be led independently and will take place in two phases.
“The first will look at information available from files, records, and policies and
procedures that were in place before Mikaeel’s death.
“Work on this phase has already started.
“Phase two will take into account any new information that has come to light during the criminal proceedings and will involve interviews with relevant staff.
“We are aiming to announce the findings by December.”
In court, Brian McConnachie QC, for Adekoya, said: “She is not a monster. It appears she is basically a young mother with a number of underlying problems.”
The court heard she had mental health problems, including depression.
And she threatened to commit suicide after Mikaeel’s father, Zahid Saeed, who had a long-term partner, told her their affair had to end.
McConnachie said: “Tragedy is a word which is overused in these courts but it would be reasonable to say that this truly is a tragic case, above all for Mikaeel Kular and his loss of life at such an early age.”
He said it had also been “an extremely difficult time” for the killer’s family.
They had to come to terms with the grief of losing a grandson and nephew and with the fact it was Adekoya who caused the death.
The defence counsel added that Adekoya had behaved “in a manner she had never acted in the past towards Mikaeel or any of her other children”.
And he went on: “This is not the kind of case that the courts are often faced with where death is the culmination of years of abuse towards a child.”
He said that Adekoya’s actions after the death were “panic rather than anything else”.


Lancashire Telegraph: Faris Sheikh is consoled by his mother, Haseena Hamid, at home after he was knocked down by a car near the junction of Whitewell Place and Ribble Street, Blackburn,
Faris Sheikh is consoled by his mother, Haseena Hamid, at home after he was knocked down by a car near the junction of Whitewell Place and Ribble Street, Blackburn,
A FIVE-year-old boy was left screaming in pain in the street after being hit by a car.
Little Faris Sheikh was playing close to his grandparents’ Blackburn home with a group of friends when he was struck by a silver or grey vehicle around 8pm on Wednesday.
The driver stopped the car briefly in Whitewell Place, Bastwell, but drove away from the scene without leaving any details or offering to help, police said.
Officers investigating the incident are now urging anyone who saw the driver, an Asian woman wearing a burkha, or know who was responsible to contact them.
Westholme pupil Faris, who lives in Cavendish Road, Blackburn, with his parents and sister was being supervised by his uncle when the incident happened.
He was found crying hysterically in the street with tyre marks down his right leg by his mother Haseena Hamid.
The 32-year-old said: “The children were having a water-fight outside, and my brother came running in.
“Then the next minute I came out and saw his leg and it was exploding with bruising.
“I thought I’m not ringing an ambulance, I’m taking him straight to the hospital. I knew they were going to say it was broken.
“He was hysterical, he just said ‘leg’, ‘leg’, ‘leg’, and all I could see was bruising, and it was swelling up.
“He’s never been like that before, he’s a happy child, he never cries.”
The youngster was kept in the Royal Blackburn Hospital overnight, as his leg continued to swell.
He will now be in plaster for at least the next four weeks, but potentially the whole of the school summer holidays.
His family have now urged the driver to come forward.
Faris’ grandmother Mumtaz Hamid, 59, said: “She should come forward, she should have come over here when it happened.
“Accidents happen, but she should have come to my house and said she was sorry, and said let’s take him to the hospital.
“If I had done that I would have come and apologised.
“She had covered her face like a holy person, but if you are a holy person you don’t run away like that.”
Haseena added: “It’s nasty, I just can’t believe that she’s done it, that she’s gone and had the audacity to do it.
“At the time I didn’t have time to think about it, I just picked him up and took him to hospital, but now I’m really angry.
“If she’d stopped I wouldn’t be angry.”
The family have no idea if the car belonged to someone visiting the street or just somebody who had taken a wrong turn.
Faris’ grandfather Abdul Hamid, 62, said: “The accident happened in the flick of an eye.
“When I went outside to see what had happened he was crying, everyone was shouting, we didn’t even know which car had knocked him down.”
Neighbour Saeed Patel, 44, who lives in nearby Ribble Street, said speeding in the area was a problem.
He said: “It’s non-stop around here they come really fast.
“I’ve asked the council for humps before to slow them down, that would help.
“It’s not safe, I was worried something like this would happen.”
Bastwell councillor Shaukat Hussain said drivers should be more cautious during summer months as more children are playing outside.
He said: “I would appeal to drivers to drive a lot more slowly.
“They should be driving slowly anyway, but they should be even more aware that kids may be playing in areas where cars are parked.
“There are no through roads in that area, so I’m a bit surprised to hear that there are problems with speeding.
“If it is local residents who are speeding then I would again appeal to them to slow down.
“We will look into whether there are any parking measures we could introduce there.”
Sgt Sean Cunningham, of the Road Policing Unit, said: “I would appeal for anyone who witnessed this collision or who saw a similar vehicle in the area at around this time to get in touch.
“I would also appeal to the driver themselves to come forward and speak to us on 101.”

Man and woman arrested for conspiring to commit FGM on 11-year-old British girl

A man and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of conspiring to commit Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) on an 11-year-old British girl.

The 72-year-old man, a Ugandan national, was held at Heathrow airport yesterday morning after arriving in the UK from Kampala, Uganda, with the girl.

Police alerted social services and she was subsequently taken into care.
A 40-year-old woman was later arrested in Hackney in connection with the case.

Both suspects remain in custody at east London police stations today, Scotland Yard said.
The arrests come amid growing pressure for UK authorities to crack down on the practice, which is most prevalent among sub-Saharan and north-east African communities.

Islamic charity with Bradford base has its bank account shut down

AN Islamic charity with a base in Bradford has been told that its bank account is being shut down, although it has yet to be told why.
Now Bradford West MP George Galloway says he will "demand" to know the reason that HSBC has decided to shut the account of the Ummah Welfare Trust.
The registered charity, which has an office on Manningham Lane, believes HSBC has taken the action because some of the money it collects goes towards humanitarian projects in Palestine. It was this week given notice that its accounts were being shut in two months' time.
The trust had its account with Barclays bank shut in 2008.
Shoyeb Mayat, of the Bradford office, said: "We have no idea why they made this decision. We are in the middle of our busiest time for donations. During Ramadan we get 70 per cent of the donations we get each year."
The group provides emergency relief in 20 countries across the world, including Pakistan, Palestine and India. It said the money goes towards providing medicine and grants to vulnerable people and children whose families have been killed or injured.
Mohammed Ahmed, one of the charity's trustees, said: "From a commercial perspective it doesn't make sense because charities like us are some of the most stable customers.
"We do have alternate banking in place, so this won't effect our operations but we find it quite offensive that a bank would go out of its way to do this to a legitimate charity."
Respect MP Mr Galloway said: "I will be contacting HSBC and asking them to reinstate the Ummah accounts and to demand to know the reasons why they want to terminate them. I'll bet this doesn't happen to any Jewish or Israeli charities. I will also be raising questions in the House about this and hopefully I all get together with the officers of Ummah over the weekend."
A statement from HSBC said: "We are not able to comment on any customer relationship. In general terms, decisions to end a customer relationship are not taken lightly, but are absolutely not based on the race or religion of a customer. Discrimination against customers on grounds of race or religion is immoral, unacceptable and illegal, and HSBC has comprehensive rules and policies in place to ensure race or religion are never factors in banking decisions."
A spokesman for the Charity Commission said: "This is an independent business decision made by the bank. Neither the charity or the Charity Commission are aware of the reason for this action. The Charity Commission’s regulatory concern is ensuring that another provider is identified, the charity can still operate and funds are not at risk. We remain in contact with the charity. "

Ex-Gitmo detainee and Leftist media darling Moazzam Begg charged with terrorism, attending Islamic State training camp

BeggThomas Joscelyn noted in the Weekly Standard in 2011: “Moazzam Begg and his organization, Cageprisoners, have proselytized on behalf of al Qaeda cleric Anwar al Awlaki and spread jihadist propaganda….Moazzam Begg’s own book confirms he is a jihadist….The Department of Justice’s investigation failed to substantiate Begg’s claims of torture, and found that his damning confession at Gitmo was voluntarily given….A recently leaked assessment of Begg prepared at Gitmo shows that military authorities recommended he remain in American custody….Amnesty International, which has partnered with Begg to demonize Guantanamo, endured a crisis when one of its top officials objected to the relationship.”
In the UK, of course, given its wholesale capitulation to Islamic supremacism, Begg has been heralded and lionized, lauded for his criticism of the Guantanamo “concentration camp.” In his off hours, however, he seems to have been up to even more insidious activities.
“U.K. charges ex-Gitmo detainee with terrorism, attending ISIL training camp,” by Phillip Swarts, The Washington Times, July 19, 2014:
A former detainee in Guantanamo Bay is pleading not guilty to terrorist charges stemming from the civil war in Syria.
Moazzam Begg, 45, is the latest former U.S. prisoner who has since been connected to terrorism. He was released in 2005 after appeals were made on his behalf by the United Kingdom.
The former detainee, Moazzam Begg, 45, has been charged in the U.K. on several counts related to his actions in Syria, including attending a terrorist training camp, the Belfast Telegraph reported Friday.
The situation comes less than a month after another former Gitmo detainee, Lahcen Ikassrien, was arrested in Spain for recruiting jihadist fighters for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
And indeed the head of the ISIL itself, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was held in Iraq at a U.S.-run prison during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Camp Bucca.
Estimates differ as to how long he was a prisoner there, but the top end guess seems to be about four years.
The camp was closed in 2009. But when the detainees were transferred over to Iraqi control, many were released, including Mr. al-Baghdadi.

A gang of five Asian men have been jailed for a total of 23 years for committing a string of child sex offences. 

Police officers conducted a lengthy investigation concerning activity that took place in Burton-upon-Trent between October 2012 and May 2013 involving the same victim. 

The five men, all from the Staffordshire town, were then found guilty after a two-week trial at Stafford Crown Court in May.

Today they were jailed for a total of 23 years at the same court.

Umber Farrouq, 21, who was convicted of two counts of sexual activity with a girl aged 13 to 15, was sentenced to five-and-a-half-years for each offence to run concurrently.

Anees Hanif was convicted of two counts of sexual activity with a girl aged 13 to 15 as well as inciting a girl aged 13 to 15 to engage in sexual activity. 

The 20-year-old was sentenced to five-and-a-half-years for each offence, to run concurrently.
Matab Ali, 21, who was convicted of two counts of sexual activity with a girl aged 13 to 15, also received five-and-a-half-years for each offence to run concurrently.

Junaid Ali, 20, was jailed for five-and-a-half-years after he was found guilty of the attempt rape of a girl aged 13 to 15.

Ameer Arshad, 19, was found guilty of blackmail and jailed for 12 months.
Farrouq, Hanif, and both Alis have also all been put onto the Sex Offenders’ Register indefinitely.

The five men were arrested by Staffordshire Police between October 2013 and January 2014.

Chief Inspector Steve Maskrey, East Staffordshire local policing team commander, said: 'We welcome the sentences handed out today which reflect the despicable crimes committed by these individuals.

'While today sees the conclusion of the criminal justice process, we recognise that the victim will be affected for the rest of her life.

'We commend her absolute bravery and our role is to work with partners to offer her continued support. 

Victims of cases like this need to remain anonymous and we must stress how important it is for her privacy to be protected so she can begin to move on.

Ameer Arshad, left, was found guilty of blackmail and jailed for 12 months. Junaid Ali, right, was jailed for five-and-a-half-years after he was found guilty of the attempt rape of a girl aged 13 to 15

'This case has men brought to justice, men who acted in a predatory way and sought out a vulnerable young girl to abuse her. 

'Their actions are inexcusable and the fact they show no remorse only highlights the sinister individuals we’re dealing with. 

'Victims can be reassured that we take reports of child exploitation extremely seriously and we will always thoroughly investigate them.”

Another 17-year-old male received a conditional youth caution for inciting sexual activity with a girl aged 13 to 15 and was referred to the police’s youth offending team.

Staff at Muslim primary school 'caught on camera describing how clapping hands is Satanic and that gay people should be stoned to death'

  • Teachers at school 'had discussions about whether music is un-Islamic'
  • Claims over The Olive School in Blackburn made by Channel 4 Dispatches
  • It's alleged staff also talked about how ties could be turned into snakes
  • Officials at school's Islam Trust contacted DfE after learning of allegations

Teachers at a Muslim faith primary have allegedly referred to clapping hands as ‘Satanic’ - and had discussions about whether music in school might be un-Islamic.

Footage was obtained for a Channel 4 documentary at The Olive School - a Muslim faith primary for 600 pupils in Blackburn, run by the Tauheedul Islam Faith, Education and Community Trust.

It is also claimed that footage shows staff talking about how ties could be turned into snakes and that gay people should be stoned to death. The Trust has labelled the discussions as ‘staff room gossip’.

Channel 4 did not say what footage from the school would be aired. Officials at the Trust contacted the Department for Education after learning of the allegations, reported the Blackburn Citizen.

The Trust invited inspectors to visit the school, and the DfE ordered an emergency ‘no notice’ Ofsted inspection last week. The Trust later insisted that this inspection went ‘very well’.

The Trust also confirmed that Dispatches had filmed undercover at the school and promised to act if anything on the film ‘is shown to undermine our progressive vision, ethos and approach’.

    A Tauheedul governor said: ‘The Trust’s schools provide a first class education for young people in modern-day Britain… We need to look at what these schools have achieved for their pupils.’

    Blackburn MP Jack Straw said:  ‘I reserve final judgment until I see the programme. From what I know the allegations are groundless.’

    He told the Blackburn Citizen: ‘I am sure Channel Four has recordings of what has been said. This appears to be what individuals have expressed in the course of conversations in the staffroom.’

    Meanwhile, a Muslim father has revealed he warned the Prime Minister’s office of worrying Islamist practices at one of the scandal-hit ‘Trojan Horse’ schools – but got no reply.

    Mohammed Zabar's daughter attends Oldknow Academy in Birmingham, one of the schools investigated in the Trojan Horse plot
    Mohammed Zabar's daughter attends Oldknow Academy in Birmingham, one of the schools investigated in the Trojan Horse plot

    The Mail on Sunday has learned that David Cameron’s office received an email in February from Mohammed Zabar, whose ten-year-old daughter attends Oldknow Academy.

    Oldknow is one of the schools investigated in connection with an alleged fundamentalist plot to take over Birmingham schools.

    Mr Zabar warned the Government that he believed the school over-emphasised Islamic teaching at the expense of other faiths.

    He said the school closed for a Muslim festival but had no Christmas celebrations.

    Downing Street did not respond to Mr Zabar’s email. Instead he was advised by the Education Funding Agency to ‘contact Oldknow Academy directly and make a complaint’.

    Mr Zabar had already met the school principal, whom he says did not deal with his concerns.

    News of the Trojan Horse plot broke in March and Mr Cameron spoke about it for the first time in April after claims that non-Muslim members of staff were being isolated, male and female pupils were segregated and assemblies were used to promote the teachings of Al Qaeda.

    The Prime Minister promised to take ‘swift action’ to ensure schools could not be used to spread the ideology of terrorists, and an investigation into schools in Birmingham started.

    One report later uncovered allegations that pupils as young as six at Oldknow were taught to treat Western women as ‘white prostitutes’.

    How The Mail on Sunday reported the story
    And there were claims that extremists pushed out the head teacher because she opposed the ‘Islamisation’ of the school. Mr Zabar believes the Government should have acted on his guidance much earlier.

    He said: ‘I was angry and frustrated that my concerns had been so easily dismissed.

    ‘When the Trojan Horse scandal broke I wrote to them again saying perhaps they might want to reassess my information in light of recent evidence. I never had a reply to that one. It was distressing and disappointing to have my concerns ignored.’

    Peter Clarke, former national head of counter-terrorism at the Metropolitan Police, was appointed in April to investigate the Trojan Horse plot to hijack the schools by Islamic extremists.

    His report is due to be handed in to the Government imminently. Last night shadow education secretary Tristram Hunt accused Mr Cameron of ‘shocking complacency’.

    He said: ‘The Government was warned about the problems in Birmingham’s schools as long ago as 2010. Now it is revealed that warnings by parents were being fobbed off by No 10.’
