Paedophile grandad ‘sold vulnerable girls for sex’ at home nicknamed The Rape House

A grandfather has been accused of running a ‘Rape House’ for years where children were sexually abused by men.

Shahzad ‘Keith’ Khan operated a child sex ring from a council flat in Telford where he prostituted youngsters for as much as £2,000 a night, .

He allegedly started targeting children shortly after he arrived from Pakistan in 1981 and would groom vulnerable girls as young as 12, the newspaper added.

Khan, who was also accused of being a paedophile, apparently led a double life and posed as an upstanding member of his community in public.

The case against him and others eventually collapsed before he was prosecuted but the Mirror said it had seen police case files on him.

A victim, who said Khan forced her to have sex with men, described how she was groomed by him.

‘I was already being abused and I didn’t understand what was happening to me,’ she said.

‘I first met Keith in the street and he told me because I had a reputation anyway I might as well get paid for it.

‘He told me about all of these older girls I knew from school and how they were doing it too and making loads of money.’

She added one night she was forced to have sex with nine men in a row.

The girl managed to escape aged 18 after a failed suicide attempt. She is now in her 30s.

 

She also said Khan had taken a 14-year-old girl’s virginity and then pimped her out to a number of men for as much as £2,000 a night.

A second victim who spoke to the newspaper said Khan took advantage of her heroin problem and made her have sex with men as well.

She added her and her family were still affected by the abuse.

Both of the victims talked about the sex house in Telford and said Khan’s son Shahmeel had openly performed sex acts and watched porn there when he was a teenager.

Shahmeel Khan was eventually convicted of rape and armed robbery.

Khan’s nephew Mohammed Ali Sultan, who was also accused of taking part in the abuse, received a total sentence of 13 years for a number of abuse charges, including two rapes.

He also admitted abusing a 13-year-old girl in 2012.
