Sikh girls 'abused by grooming gangs for decades' says shock new report
Sikh girls in Birmingham and the West Midlands were subjected to decades of abuse by grooming gangs despite pleas for help, a shock report claims. And members of the Sikh community turned vigilante when the police and other authorities failed to act on their concerns, the authors of the study allege. Entitled “The Religiously Aggravated Sexual Exploitation of Young Sikh Women Across the UK”, the report has echoes of the Rotherham child sexual exploitation scandal. The West Midlands girls are said to have been targeted by “fashionably-dressed adult Pakistani men” before being isolated from their families and mistreated by one or more abusers.
