Young woman who was trafficked into the UK aged ten spent a decade as a domestic and sex slave after health and social workers repeatedly missed chances to save her

A deaf and mute woman was trafficked into the UK aged ten and kept as a sex and domestic slave for a decade after health and social workers repeatedly missed chances to save her.

The orphan, who was originally from Pakistan, repeatedly beaten and raped by Ilyas Ashar, 84, who forced her to sleep in the cellar of his home in Eccles, Salford.

Both Ashar and his wife, Tallat, were jailed in 2013 for their treatment of the woman and last October the victim was awarded £101,300 in compensation for her years of domestic servitude.

    Another example of islamophobia. The young woman should have realized its just part of the wonderful traditional culture of the religion of peace.
