London, Nov 06 (ANI): Five British-born Pakistanis have been jailed for abusing white girls as young as 12.
The 'sexual predators' preyed on their victims over several months and threatened them with violence if they refused their advances.
One of the men branded his victim a "white bitch" when she resisted, while a second smirked, "I've used you and abused you."
The men attacked the four girls in play areas, parks and in the back of their cars, Sheffield Crown Court heard. They gave them gifts and introduced them to their friends. The girls were abused so frequently that after many months it "became a way of life".
The girls, who were being monitored by social services, were eventually rescued by police and removed from their homes amid growing concerns for their safety.
Two of the men wept in the dock as they were jailed.
"I've listened to the backdrop of some of you sobbing - I have to say your weeping cuts no ice with me at all," the Daily Mail quoted Judge Peter Kelson QC as saying.
"You had what you regarded as your fun, now you will take your punishment," the Judge added.
The five, Umar Razaq, 24, Razwan Razaq, 30, Zafran Ramzan, 21, Adil Hussain, 20, and Mohsin Khan, 21, were found guilty of a string of sexually related offences against the girls, one aged 12, two aged 13 and one aged 16.
Ramzan was found guilty of raping the 16-year-old girl in her own home, and the other four were found guilty of sexual activity with a child.
Umar Razaq was jailed for four and a half years, while the judge gave Razwan Razaq 11 years.
Ramzan was jailed for nine years, and Hussain and Khan both received four years. All five were placed on the sex offenders' register. Three further men were cleared.
The attacks took place in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, during 2008, the court was told. Khan, a mortgage adviser who owned a BMW, described his victim as a 'little stick' who looked as if she had not reached puberty.(ANI)
