The victim, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, told the jury of almost a decade of alleged abuse after being trafficked into the UK from Pakistan in 2000, supposedly to work as a domestic help- though aged only 10 at the time. The orphaned youngster was slapped, beaten, sexually abused and hit with a rolling pin while forced to work for no money during the day, the court heard. At night the victim was made to sleep on the concrete floor, the door bolted.
Her alleged abusers were Ilyas Ashar, 83, and his wife, Tallat Ashar, 66, who deny charges of false imprisonment, human trafficking, sexual offences, violence and benefit fraud. The girl told of her treatment while at their home on Cromwell Road in Eccles, Salford, Greater Manchester. … The victim’s true age is not known but it is thought she was aged between 10 and 12 when she came to the UK.
