Another group of Muslim child-rapists jailed in Rochdale. 4 of the 5 men were related to each other - one of the unique factors of this kind of crime.

Five men have been jailed for over 55 years as part of an ongoing investigation to tackle child sexual exploitation in Rochdale.

The convictions relate to offences committed between 2004 and 2008 against three teenage girls aged between 14 and 16 at the time of the abuse.

Joshim Miah, of Yorkshire Street, Rochdale, has been found guilty of one count of rape. He has been sentenced to seven years in prison.

Mohammed Sadeer of Brimrod Lane, Rochdale has been found guilty of one count of attempted rape. He has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Ittefaq Yousaf of Stanley Street, Rochdale has been found guilty of one count of sexual assault, one count of causing/inciting a girl to engage in sexual activity and possession of indecent images. He has been sentenced to 20 months in prison.

Detective Chief Inspector Jamie Daniels, the Senior Investigating Officer for Operation Doublet, said:

“Operation Doublet was launched following the 2011 investigation into child sexual exploitation in Rochdale and we identified a number of cases, which broadly took place between 2004 and 2008, across Greater Manchester where teenage girls had been sexually exploited by older men."

“This was an extremely complex case and I want to thank the victims for the immense bravery they have shown; we could not have arrived at this point without their courage and support.

“Tackling the sexual exploitation of children and young people is an absolute priority for Greater Manchester Police, but protecting them is the responsibility of us all."

"It is crucial that we work together to identify individuals who prey on vulnerable children and empower young people to speak up."
