Brothers convicted of sexually assaulting same 13-year-old girl at different times

Harrow Crown Court jury finds siblings, 34 and 25, of Colindale guilty of one count and acquits them of another

TWO brothers - one a former Metropolitan Police staff - sexually assaulted the same 13-year-old.

Mohammad Imran Shabbir, 34, who worked for the capital’s force, and Muhammad Farhan Shabbir, 25, both of Sheaveshill Court, The Hyde, Colindale, were found guilty yesterday at Harrow Crown Court of sexual assault.

The court heard that the younger sibling assaulted the girl at an address in the NW9 post code district in May 2011 while his older brother committed the sexual assault some time between January and March 2011.

Jurors heard the abuse came to light after the victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told a teacher at her school and the brothers were subsequently arrested in December.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Luke Williams, from the Child Abuse Investigation Command, said: “Two men have today been convicted of child sex offences.

“The vulnerable young victim in this case showed great courage in coming forward.

“The Metropolitan Police will tirelessly pursue offenders who exploit the most vulnerable in society.”

The Shabbirs will be sentenced on November 22. Both men were acquitted of another sexual assault on the same girl.
