Rape complainant “sure” she’s identified right man, court told

A WOMAN who claims a taxi driver raped her as a teenager says she is “100 per cent sure” she has the right man.

The complainant gave evidence at Sheffield Crown Court this morning (Tuesday) against Asghar Bostan (47), who denies two counts of raping her when she was a teenager in 2003.

The woman claimed Bostan, of East Bawtry Road, Whiston, had been known as Don in the early 2000s – which he denies.

She said the defendant was one of several men who visited a flat on Wagon Road, where she often stayed after running away from home.
