Six men jailed for 81 ½ years for child sex offences in Rotherham


Six men have today been sentenced to a total of 81 1/2 years' imprisonment at Sheffield Crown Court for non-recent child sexual offences involving two victims in Rotherham. Five of the six men were convicted on 25 January at Sheffield Crown Court, and the sixth pleaded guilty to one offence at a hearing last year.

Basharat Dad, was sentenced to 20 years' imprisonment after he was found guilty of multiple child sexual offences. His brothers Nasar Dad, and Tayab Dad, 34, were jailed for 14 years six months and ten years respectively, for their crimes.

Mohammed Sadiq, was jailed for 13 years, and Matloob Hussain, was jailed for 13 years.

Amjad Ali, pleaded guilty to sexual intercourse with a girl under 13 at a court hearing last year. Today he was sentenced to 11 years in prison.

Reviewing lawyer Mark Langan from the CPS Yorkshire and Humberside Complex Casework Unit said: "These men were found guilty of a catalogue of vile sex offences against two young girls.  The girls were targeted by these men because they were naïve and vulnerable. They were given alcohol and cannabis and intimidated into performing sexual acts. On one occasion one of the young girls was locked alone in a flat for hours without food, water or electricity.

"These young girls were subjected to the most appalling abuse at the hands of these men. They have both shown extraordinary courage in coming forward and enabling us to work with South Yorkshire Police to build a strong prosecution case which  resulted in the jury returning guilty verdicts on 21 out of 23 charges.

"These six defendants have now been sentenced to a total of 81 years in prison for their crimes.  I hope this is of some comfort to their victims, and our thoughts remain with them both."
