Oxford exploitation trial: Girl 'burned with lighter' . Second girl branded with letter 'M' to show her owner Bookmark and Share
clear

From the BBC and ITV News

A 14-year-old girl was burned with a lighter and threatened if she refused to have sex with men, a court heard.

She is one of six alleged victims of nine men accused of grooming children and exploiting them for sex in Oxford. She was in care from the age of five and went to a children's home when she was 12. She kept running away, hanging around the streets of Oxford and she liked to get drunk from a young age.

Jurors at the Old Bailey were told the girl, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, met three of defendants Kamar Jamil, Anjum Dogar and his brother Akhtar Dogar, while she was living at a children's home aged 14. The court heard she drank and took drugs "to the point of passing out because she knew what was expected of her".

Noel Lucas QC, prosecuting, said the teenager felt she had to do what she was told by the men, otherwise they would threaten her and get rough with her. It is claimed she was taken to alleyways, woods and various houses and flats where men would have sex with her.

Mr Lucas also told the court the girl had said to a friend: "I have no choice, I just want to be loved. I've never been loved..."

They also threatened and abused her, burning her with cigarettes and they were patronising, the jury was told. The men would allegedly tell her that doing such things "was perfectly normal" and that "other girls" did it to him.

A 12-year-old girl who was repeatedly raped  was also made to have a back-room abortion after falling pregnant, She was also "branded" with the initial of a man who claimed to "own her". Jurors at the Old Bailey heard the victim, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was "sold" to Mohammed Karrar when she had just turned 11 to "cure her bad attitude".

Noel Lucas QC, prosecuting, said he then groomed her for sexual activity, giving her alcohol and drugs. Mr Lucas said that on one occasion Mohammed Karrar heated a hair pin with a lighter and branded the girl with the letter M on her buttock to show she belonged to him.

The trial is expected to last until April. The defendants are all in custody
