Twenty men found guilty of rape cases in London

Twenty men have been found guilty of being part of a grooming gang that raped and abused girls as young as 11 in Huddersfield.

The culprits were convicted of more than 120 offences against 15 girls.

Victims were plied with drink and drugs and then “used and abused at will” in a seven year “campaign of rape and abuse” between 2004 and 2011.

The ringleader, Amere Singh Dhaliwal, 35, was jailed for life with a minimum of 18 years by a Leeds Crown Court.

Other members of the gang were jailed for between five and 18 years.

Details of the men’s convictions and sentences can only now be published after reporting restrictions on a series of trials were partially lifted.
