Police 'acknowledge' victims made contact in 2008

We acknowledge that some of the victims did make contact with us about their concerns over employees at the Spice of India takeaway. However the true picture of what was occurring at the premises by Azad Miah was not apparent.

However from December 2010 once the enquiry was commenced and a dedicated team formed, who relentlessly began to gather evidence over a lengthy period, it became clear on what had been happening. The evidence gathered resulted in charges and Azad Miah brought to justice.
