Police smash child sex trafficking ring as gangsters are jailed for more than 100 years

Jailed: restaurant boss Mohammed Khubaib, 43 (Picture: REMOVED Cambridgeshire Police/PA)

A child sex, trafficking and prostitution ring has been smashed and gangsters sentenced to more than 100 years imprisonment.

The final one was found guilty at the Old Bailey today of charges involving 15 young victims – many of them vulnerable and in care.

The 11-strong gang – mostly Asian and Eastern Europeans operating in the quiet cathedral city of Peterborough – subjected a total of 30 girls and young women to horrifying sexual ordeals.

They have received sentences of up to 20 years each on charges including rape, trafficking for sexual exploitation and child prostitution in a series of five trials over two years.

Some of the victims were as young as 12 and the shocking and systematic abuse echoes other organised rings in Rochdale, Oxford and Rotherham.

In the latest trial restaurateur Mohammed Khubaib groomed vulnerable teenage girls for sex for himself and others.

He plied the girls with alcohol and gave them gifts of food and cigarettes and used music videos including “porn-style scenes” to bend them to his demands.

Khubaib, 43, had “a persistent and almost predatory interest in young teenage girls”.
Khubaib, who is of Pakistani origin and married with children, was found guilty of 11 charges of trafficking people within the UK for sexual exploitation and a further count of rape of a woman 16 years of age or over.

He will be sentenced on May 15 by Judge Peter Rook.

The nine men already convicted of a total of 59 offences under Operation Erle have been sentenced to a total of 101 years and nine months.

Their victims were 15 young girls from Peterborough and two from Lincolnshire and Rutland.

The inquiry run by Cambridgeshire Police and Peterborough City Council started in 2012.

A police spokesman said: “This was a victim-led inquiry where a number of young people who might have been at risk of sexual exploitation were identified by the police and Peterborough City Council towards the end of 2012. We have made great efforts to safeguard these young people, win their confidence and explore what they told us.”

Opening the case against Khubaib, prosecutor Mark Dennis QC said: “These were girls who were vulnerable because of their age, state of adolescent development, background, home circumstances or their unsettled schooling.
“It was easy for Khubaib to try and take advantage of the vulnerability of such girls, relying on a degree of naivety and immaturity in the girls themselves.

“He would seek to entice them into associating with him by providing them with alcohol, cigarettes or purchases of food, even money and small gifts, purporting to act as if he were their friend and helper.

“It was a form of grooming by bringing the girls into a frame of mind whereby they would be prepared to engage in sexual activity with him or any other adults present at the time – all for the sexual pleasure and satisfaction of himself and any other adults with him.”

The first charge relates to a 14-year-old girl who had known Khubaib for several months after being introduced by her friend, aged 13, before he allegedly forced her into a sex act in August 2007.

Khubaib was arrested in January 2013 when police found him with two 14-year-old girls in a small terraced house in a residential side street in Peterborough.

It was the third time in a week Khubaib had been seen with clearly drunk young girls in a house in the city

Vodka had been supplied to the girls and there was “playing of music videos on a laptop which, according to one of the tenants in the house, appeared to include ‘porn-style scenes’,” said Mr Dennis.

In the previous trials, held in Cambridge and the Old Bailey, four of the guilty men were Pakistani, three Slovakian, one Iraqi, and one cannot be identified because of his young age.
