A deaf girl has told a court how an elderly Pakistani couple abused and treated her as a slave with beatings and rape a regular occurrence after she was trafficked to the UK from Pakistan in 2000.
The girl who has has not been named alleges she was the victim of abuse for years and is now thought to be aged between 19 and 21.
LM should point out Illyas Ashar and his wife (pictured) who are facing charges of false imprisonment and human trafficking have not yet been found guilty as court proceedings are still ongoing. However, my heart bleeds for the poor orphan girl who was deaf and has to go to court to recount unimaginable cruelty.
Mr Ashar denies 12 counts of rape and benefit fraud while his wife denies sexual assault as the trial continues.
