High Wycombe grooming case: Seven men are cleared

Seven men, from a gang of 10, have been cleared of rape and the conspiracy to rape a girl over a five-year period.

The offences are said to have been carried out in High Wycombe, between 2007 and 2012, when the victim was between 11 and almost 16.

The Oxford Crown Court jury was later discharged after failing to reach a majority verdict on three other men who faced a total of 15 counts.

Prosecutors will decide by 2 August on whether to seek a retrial.

The men found not guilty, who all live in High Wycombe, are: Asif Hussain, 21, of Plumer Road, Jubroin Khan, 21, of Rutland Avenue, Ammar Rafiq, 19, Castleview Gardens, Mohammed Adnan, 21, of Upper Green Street, Kasam Dad, 23, of Gibbs Close, Rameez Ali, 21 of West End Street and Janaid Sharif, 26, of Cambridge Crescent.

Iblal Fiaz, 21, and his brother Khasim Fiaz, 23, both of St Georges Close, High Wycombe, deny multiple rape charges.

Iblal Fiaz also denies conspiracy to rape, trafficking in the UK for sexual exploitation, sexual activity with a child and causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.

Mudassar Hussain, 19, of Abbey Barn Road, High Wycombe, denies one charge of rape.
