'Sexual abuse of 15-year-old girl by gang of six men was filmed on mobile phone'

A drunken 15-year-old girl was filmed naked and pleading as a gang of six men sexually abused her throughout the night, a court heard.

Harrowing footage from one of the defendant’s mobile phones seen by Leeds Crown Court showed the young girl lying naked while men laughed and touched her. 

She could be heard saying: 'Give me back my clothes' and 'let me go'.

Harrowing case: Saqib Hussain  31, and Wahid Hussain , 19, were at court today along with four other men, accused of sexually abusing the teenager

Ali Rehman, 26, his brother Hassan, 18, Larasab Hussain, 45, Faisar Younas, 23, Saqib Hussain, 31, and Wahid Hussain, 19, are on trial in West Yorkshire after the teenager was 'used and abused like an object'.

The jury watched the videos as Sharon Beattie, prosecuting, transcribed the men's conversation - which was in Urdu, Punjabi and English.

    Miss Beattie said: 'In her account, various videos were taken that evening, only one was recovered - taken at the end of the evening.

    'But it demonstrates how they were treating her as an object, something to use and abuse. There is no question of her giving consent to any activities that evening.'

    The court heard how the schoolgirl had been drinking with a friend on the night of May 11, 2010, when they went to Ali Rehman's home, where they shared Jack Daniels and coke with him and his friends.

    Her friend went upstairs with Rehman to buy some cannabis and left the house at around 9pm, taking the 15-year-old’s mobile phone with her.

    It was agreed that the young girl should be left behind to sleep off the alcohol because she was 'wasted', with Rehman, from Dewsbury, West Yorks, saying: 'You can stay here because you can’t even walk.'

    The abuse began, the court heard, when the teenager was led upstairs to a bedroom and she was laid down on a mattress.

    The girl had told police that Rehman allowed his friend Saqib Hussain into the room and told him: 'You have 10 minutes.'

    Miss Beattie told the court: 'If this is right it demonstrates from the off Ali Rehman was set on this girl being available for the sexual gratification of himself and his friends and the fact she couldn’t walk demonstrates she was vulnerable to all these men.'

    After 10 minutes it is alleged that Rehman then entered the room and raped her, but was interrupted by his brother telling him they had to leave.

    Ali Rehman was set on this girl being available for the sexual gratification of himself and his friends and the fact she couldn’t walk demonstrates she was vulnerable to all these men.
    Her family had become so concerned she had been reported as a missing person.

    The court heard that Rehman told the girl to put her clothes on, flung her over his shoulder and carried her from his bedroom to the nearby home of co-defendant Faiser Younas.

    The jury heard that at one point she woke up to two of the men trying to rape her at the same time.

     She said she remembered crying throughout her ordeal.

    The prosecutor said the group then left, putting the girl in a taxi, driven by Larasab Hussain, going via Asda in order to get more alcohol. 

    The girl said she could feel herself coming around by this point, but was then given more vodka.

    The group then went to Hussain’s flat to allegedly continue the abuse further. One man was heard to say he did not want his face in any pictures.

    They then went back to Rehman’s home, where the police discovered the girl in the morning.
    At first the girl denied that anything had happened to her out of fear, the court heard.

    But she changed her mind and gave her full account in October 2010.

    Ali Rehman is charged with three counts of rape, and one of attempted rape, Saqib Hussain is charged with sexual assault, Faisar Youas with one count of rape, Hassan Rehman with attempted rape, Wahid Hassan with one count of attempted rape and Larasab Hussain with one count of sexual assault.

    The men, all from Dewsbury, deny the charges. The trial continues.
