Bradford: A court in the United Kingdom has sent two men to jail for 14 years for 'violently' raping a 13-year-old girl in a hotel room. The judge, who delivered the verdict, observed that the convicts acted like animals when they raped her.

According to a report in Mirror, the men, identified as Ismail Ali and Naheem Uddin, picked up the girl from the streets on April 18 and took her to the hotel room, where they raped her in a "vile and degrading" attack.

 

The prosecutor, David McGonigal, had told the court that the girl tried to harm herself after the incident by cutting her arms and legs.

"You took it in turns to abuse her and each of you behaved like an animal,” Bradford Crown Court , West Yorkshire, Judge David Hatton QC told the convicts, adding that though the girl willingly came with them to the hotel room "she did not volunteer for the vile abuse and degradation that followed at your hands."

The jury found Uddin guilty of raping the girl, attempting to rape her and taking indecent photos of the minor. Ali was found guilty of two offences of rape and a charge of possession of indecent photos, sent on phone by Naheem.
