A TEENAGER allegedly raped by a group of men in Bradford was labelled “a little slag” by one of them, a jury heard yesterday.

Saeed Akhtar, known as Sid, held “wild parties” at his home where alcohol, cocaine and cannabis were taken, his former partner told Bradford Crown Court.

Speaking from behind screens, the woman said she was in her mid-twenties when she began a relationship with Sid, who was in his fifties.

She was living with him at an address in Bradford when he hosted parties several times a week, she said.

Men and women would turn up with vodka and Jack Daniels, and drugs were taken. She alleged she had been with Sid to pick up cocaine from a dealer to take back to the house.

The woman said she met one of the two girls involved in the trial at the house. The teenager, who said she was 18, attended parties at the address up to five times, it was claimed.

The witness told the jury that Sid said: “She’s nowt but a little slag. We’ve all been through her.”

A second young woman told the trial that she herself had been sexually exploited as a teenager but not by any of the defendants on trial.

She became friends with the complainant and met the defendant Mohammed Usman, known as Manny, at her home.

The witness, also giving evidence behind screens, said Manny shouted to her friend: “Get home now,” when he drove past the girls in the street in the early hours.

Once in the house, he was aggressive and intimidating, shouting and urinating down the stairs. Her friend claimed he had grabbed her by the throat when she was upstairs with him.

The witness said she and her friend fled the property and the police came and took Manny away.

“We were both terrified,” she said.

Asked if her friend would speak to her about what was going on in her life, the woman told the court: “I am sure there would be loads that happened to her that she didn’t want to talk about.”

The ten men on trial have pleaded not guilty to all the allegations against them.
