Daughter of Telford child sex victim demands murdering dad to stay behind bars ‘until he says sorry’
Tasnim Lowe was born when mum Lucy was just 14 years old as the result of underage sex with Azhar Ali Mehmood
The daughter of a Telford child sex victim told authorities not to release the dad that abused and murdered her mum until he says he is sorry.
Tasnim Lowe was born when mum Lucy was just 14 years old as the result of underage sex with Azhar Ali Mehmood.
Lucy is thought to be one of as many as 1,000 children groomed for sex in the Midlands town during a four-decade epidemic exposed by the Sunday Mirror at the weekend.
She was 16 and pregnant with her second child when she was killed along with mum Eileen, 49, and sister Sarah, 17, in an arson attack by sick Mehmood – who was 10 years her senior.
West Mercia Police in denial mode:
Telford abuse: Victim numbers ‘sensationalised’
Reports on the scale of sexual abuse in Telford are “sensationalised”, a police chief has said.
A Sunday Mirror investigation found up to 1,000 girls in the Shropshire town may have been victims of grooming gangs since the 1980s.
But, West Mercia Police Supt Tom Harding said he “significantly disputed” the figures.
“I don’t believe Telford is any worse than lots of places across England and Wales,” he said.
