London, Feb 2 (ANI): A British Muslim minister has been convicted for raping a 12-year-old boy, and sexually abusing another at a mosque in Stoke-on-Trent.
Mohammed Hanif Khan, honoured by Princess Anne at Buckingham Palace for his work, had made the young boys his prey when they went to the mosque for religious lessons, the Sun reports.
The forty-two-year-old imam raped a boy after prayers before telling the terrified victim: "You're my bitch."
Angry relatives attacked Khan, and sent him behind bars after the boy related the incident to his father. His 15-year-old cousin also revealed that he was abused.
Nottingham Crown Court remanded him in custody to await sentence after convicting him.
Khan, who has married twice and whose mosque is the largest in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs, was the Prison Service's first full-time Muslim minister. (ANI)
