Sexual abuse of girl in Rotherham described as ‘unimaginable’ by NSPCC

The sexual abuse of a young girl in Rotherham has been described as ‘unimaginable’ by the NSPCC as the charity urged other victims to come forward.

The NSPCC spoke out after three Rotherham men – Riaz Makhmood, Sajid Ali and Zaheer Iqbal – were jailed for over 21 years between them for indecently assaulting a girl who was 12 and 13 at the time of the abuse in the mid 1990s.

They were prosecuted as part of Operation Stovewood – the National Crime Agency’s investigation into child sexual exploitation and abuse between 1997 and 2013.

Riaz Makhmood, 39, of Falding Street; Ali, 38, of James Street and Iqbal, 39, of St Johns Avenue, all in Masbrough, were convicted of 15 counts of indecent assault between them.

  1. While children were being raped across the town the Bradford Rotherham blog surfaced, littered with comments attacking this blog for exposing CSE.

    Makes you wonder what those responsible for the attack posts and comments were thinking and how they sleep at night now the scale of the abuse of children in Rotherham is out in the open.

  2. It is manifestly obvious the author of the first “blog”( referred to above by Rothpol) is not a natural writer of English, nor (perchance) a Councillor at RMBC (any longer) ! ? You should hang your head in shame !

  3. The example posting from the Bradford Rotherham politics blog was just that, an example of the bile directed at the author of this blog for making a stand against the reluctance of the establishment to speak out about the abuse of children in Rotherham.
    What is particularly disturbing about the Bradford and Rotherham politics blog as well as the Rotherham politics take 2 blogs is that it provided the platform for individuals with some very odd views to undermine the efforts of Rik in putting pressure on the establishment to act and stop the rape and abuse of children across Rotherham.
    A commentator called community champion was also singled out for special treatment by both of these blogs and his/her crime, speaking out about CSE?
    Lets hope there are more arrests and convictions and we see more criminals locked up for a long time.
