Britain deports Pakistani convicted for child sex crimes

London, May 31 (IANS) A Pakistani national, convicted for child sex crimes in Britain, has been deported from the country, a media report said Tuesday.

Zulfar Hussain, 48, admitted carrying out attacks on children, including abduction, child sex and supplying youngsters with drugs. He also lured two girls into a sex trap, the Daily Express reported.

Hussain, from Blackburn, was jailed for five years and eight months in August 2007. He was ordered to sign the sex offenders register for life and banned from associating with girls under 16 for life.

Another pakistani national, Qaiser Naveed, 34, from Burnley, was jailed along with Hussain for the same offences. He, however, did not appeal his deportation back to Pakistan.

The accused had picked up two girls aged around 15, who were in the care of social services and began having sex with them in 2005, officials said.

In February 2006, the alarm was raised by the social services when one girl went missing.

The girl had been picked up by the men in Hussain’s car. They then got the second girl before they gave them ecstasy tablets and alcohol and had sex with them.

In 2010, when Hussain was due to be released from jail, he “convinced” a judge that he be allowed to stay in Britain.

He claimed deportation breached his “right to family life”. He said his British wife of 21 years and children have lived in the country for 10 years.

But the UK Borders Agency (UKBA) won an appeal in January this year and detained Hussain.

The Pakistani national was sent back to his native country May 28 after he lost his case following a series of appeals and court hearings.

Immigration Minister Damian Green said: “We will not accept foreign nationals like Zulfar Hussain breaking our laws. Those who commit serious offences should be removed at the earliest possible opportunity.”
