Rape victim used as sex slave is disowned by family

DHAKA (TIP): A YOUNG woman held captive as a sex slave in Bradford has become a suicidal outcast, disowned by her family because she was raped, a court heard. The Bangladeshi student was a naive virgin when she was abducted from London and beaten and kept prisoner by takeaway worker, Abdul Hanif.

Jailing Hanif for 17 years yesterday, Judge Peter Benson told him: “You began to use her as a sexual resource and you controlled her and isolated her and locked her in. “You took her phone and bank card and repeatedly raped her on an almost daily basis. “Essentially, you treated her as a slave. She was a prisoner and had no life at all.”After four months of degradation, the 26-year-old woman plucked up the courage to escape Hanif’s tyranny when he threatened to force her into prostitution to pay off his gambling debts.

When she objected, he strangled her with a cable, leaving marks on her throat.Labelling Hanif intelligent and extremely manipulative, Judge Benson said: “These were acts of calculated depravity where you cruelly and deliberately enslaved a vulnerable young woman.” The victim, who came to London in 2009 on a student visa, was struggling to pay for her accountancy course and about to be made homeless when Hanif seized his chance to abduct, isolate and imprison her.
