Bad things happen in threes. Three men. Three cases posted in under an hour. This time from BBC Regions – Nottingham

Three men have been convicted of sexually abusing vulnerable teenage girls after police found a “treasure trove” of evidence against them. Police said the offences took place in Nottingham city centre between February 2017 and January 2019.

They related to three girls in the care system who were 13 to 15 at the time, the force added. Waqas Akhtar, Mohammed Saeed Ahmed and Hamza Shazad will be sentenced later this month.

  • Waqas Akhtar, 26, of Glentworth Road, Radford, Nottingham, was convicted at Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday of sexual activity with a girl under 16, penetrative sexual activity with a girl under 16, two counts of engaging in sexual communication with a child, and meeting a girl under 16 years of age following grooming
  • Hamza Shazad, 27, of Ewart Road, Forest Fields, had earlier admitted three counts of making indecent photographs of children, one count of possessing extreme pornographic images and three counts of distributing indecent photographs of a child.
  • Mohammed Saeed Ahmed, 22, of Vale Crescent South, previously pleaded guilty to engaging in sexual communication with a child, causing or inciting a girl under 16 to engage in sexual activity and sexual activity with a girl under 16

Two other men were acquitted and Shazad was acquitted of further charges.

Waqas Akhtar, Mohammed Saeed Ahmed and Shazad will be sentenced at the same court on 29 March.

  1. James, I’d be very surprised if they were not, although we know that Sikh girls are sometimes targeted. Those cases have come to public attention when the girl’s brothers have decided to deal with it in house, and THEY have been charged in court with assaulting the abusers.
    This case was hardly reported in the media – a few local reports when they were committed for trial in 2019, and now the conviction reported, but only in local press. I never saw any report of the trial and the evidence given against them, or their defence (if they said anything in their defence). Reporting of these court cases is much reduced since the Jay Report.
