Ringleader of gang who repeatedly raped a 13-year-old schoolgirl in Yorkshire ‘has fled to Bangladesh before being sentenced’

The alleged ringleader of a gang who repeatedly raped a vulnerable 13-year-old schoolgirl in Yorkshire is believed to have fled abroad to Bangladesh before being sentenced.

Arif Chowdhury, 20, allegedly left for Bangladesh during the investigation after he was arrested in 2012 in connection to the raping of the schoolgirl, Bradford crown court heard last year.

He is also accused of pimping her out to his contacts in Keighley when he was just 15.
