Afghan British army interpreter drugged and raped 14-year-old girl months after being allowed to live in UK

An Afghan interpreter with the British Army has been jailed for drugging and raping a 14-year-old girl just months after he was allowed to live in the UK.

Asadullah Najibullah, 28, plied the girl and her two friends with vodka and cannabis after luring them to his flat to celebrate Bonfire Night.

Najibullah then called for a taxi to pick up her friends, leaving him alone in the flat with the 14-year-old, who smoked some more cannabis.

A court heard he then took off the girl’s clothes and raped her while she lay unconscious on November 5, 2016.
