Brothers who ‘owned Rotherham’

Victims stated that the ring-leaders were an armed, violent, drug-dealing family. The girls were trafficked around the country, the gang acting with impunity.

The jury of six men and six women has heard women describe how they were were targeted in their young teens and subjected to brutal treatment as they were passed around men who raped and beat them.

Some described how they were trafficked, locked up, physically assaulted and threatened with death.

Arshid, Basharat and Bannaras Hussain - known as Mad Ash, Bash and Bono - formed a violent, gun-toting, drug-dealing family who appeared to operate with impunity in the South Yorkshire town, the women told the jury.

The brothers’ grooming method has become a familiar story - young teenagers treated like girlfriends by men more than a decade older than themselves before being beaten, abused and passed around the gang.

One woman, now 33, described how her happy, normal childhood was transformed when she met Basharat and was subjected to what prosecutors described as a “terrible ordeal” for a year or more.

The woman re-lived how she was taken to a Sheffield flat and tied up and blindfolded as a succession of men subjected her to sex acts.

She explained how, on another occasion, she thought she was going to die when her hands and feet were tied and she had petrol poured over her.
