12 men rape British teen girl for over 13 months; slapped with 140 years in jail
Chowdhury subjected the British teen girl to regular beatings and made her have sex with other men in a year-long ordeal.
Washington: A Bradford Crown Court in West Yorkshire on Monday slapped jail term of 140 years to a gang of 12 men who repeatedly raped a teenage British girl for over a period of 13 months (between 2011-12).
She was made to have sex in various locations in the town, including an underground car park and a church graveyard.
According to a report published in dailymail.co.uk, all the 12 accused belong to south Asian descent. Out of the twelve men, the apex court announced jail term for eleven for rape and a twelfth man was jailed for sexual activity with an another child aged under 16.
However, the mastermind of the gang has reportedly escaped to Bangladesh, the report further said.
The arrogant men raped the vulnerable schoolgirl they saw as 'utterly worthless'. In one sustained attack she was raped by five of them in succession, the court heard.
Two of the men also received sentences for offences against other victims, the report added.
The court also heard how the men were led by the ringleader Ahmed Al-Choudhury who facilitated most of the offences.
Arif Chowdhury, 20, allegedly left for Bangladesh during the investigation after he was arrested in 2012 in connection to the raping of the schoolgirl, Bradford crown court heard last year.
He is also accused of drug trafficking and pimping the school girl out to his contacts in Keighley when he was just 15.
Chowdhury had previously got to know the victim when she was 13 after persuading her to do drug runs in Keighley.
She had attempted to stop helping the drug-dealer, revealing to police how he had racially abused her and then raped her.
Chowdhury subjected her to regular beatings and made her have sex with other men in a year-long ordeal.
He allegedly brought her to an underground car park to meet four teenage friends of Chowdhury before they raped her.
