Six men have been sentenced at the Old Bailey in London to more than 80 years in prison for child sex offences.

They were found guilty of 37 offences after a nine week trial at the same court. The charges included rape, and arranging or facilitating child prostitution.

Vikram Singh, aged 46, of Cannock Road, Aylesbury was sentenced to a total of 17-and-a-half years in prison.

Asif Hussain, aged 32, of Rossal Place, Milton Keynes, was sentenced to a total of 13-and-a-half years in prison.

Arshad Jani, aged 32, of Cousins Drive, Aylesbury, was sentenced to a total of 13 years in prison.

Akbari Khan, aged 35, of Mandeville Road, Aylesbury, was sentenced to a total of 16 years in prison.

Taimoor Khan, aged 28, of Highbridge Road, Aylesbury, was sentenced to three years in prison.

The offences relate to two victims, who were aged under 16 at the time of the offences, which occurred in Aylesbury between January 2006 and December 2012.

“Firstly, I would like to thank the victims in this case for their bravery in coming forward and having the immense courage to attend court.

“It is because of their courage that six men have been found guilty of serious sexual offences against children and are now facing long prison sentences.

“Although we can never change what happened to these women when they were young girls, I hope that the sentencing of these predatory men will enable them to start moving forward with their lives.

“This has been a long and complex case involving a lot of hard work from many different people and agencies and so I want to thank everyone for their efforts.

“I also want to take this opportunity to ask anyone out there who may have been a victim of crime to come forward and talk to us. This case shows that we will listen and do everything in our power to bring the offenders to justice.”
