“Three South Yorkshire men” are Sajid Ali, 38, Zaheer Iqbal, 40 and Riaz Makhmood, 39.
Three men have gone on trial at Sheffield Crown Court, accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl for a period of a year during the mid-1990s.
Sajid Ali, 38, Zaheer Iqbal, 40 and Riaz Makhmood, 39, face a total of 15 counts of indecent assault that are alleged to have been carried out on a girl aged between 12 and 13-years-old in the Masbrough area of Rotherham.
Opening the case yesterday, prosecutor, Sophie Drake, told jurors how the three defendants ‘plied’ their young victim with alcohol before pressurising her to perform sex acts on them, often one after the other.
