Nine men from Rochdale have been charged following an investigation into child
The charges relate to offences committed separately against one teenage girl in the Rochdale area by different men between 2008 and 2009.
Greater Manchester Police say the victim was traced as part of a separate investigation which resulted in nine men being jailed in May for running a child exploitation ring in the Heywood area of Rochdale.
Their trial at Liverpool Crown Court heard the group had plied their vulnerable underage victims with alcohol and drugs and passed them around for sex.
The police say this latest investigation, which has led to nine other men being charged, is different in nature as there are no allegations of trafficking.
Freddy Kendakumana, 26, has been charged with three counts of rape, attempted rape and four counts of sexual activity with a child under 16.
Roheez Khan, 26, has been charged with ten counts of sexual activity with a child under 16. Chola Chansa, 32, has been charged with two counts of sexual activity with a child under 16.
Ali Asghar Hussain Shah, 39, Anjam Masood, 30, Mohammed Rafiq, 31, and Asrar Haider, 38 have all been charged with sexual activity and inciting sexual activity with a child under 16.
Abdul Huk, 36, and Mohammed Ali, 27, have been charged with sexual activity with a child under 16.
All the men have been bailed and will appear before Bury Magistrates Court on various dates between November and December.
Lynne Jones, Chair of Rochdale Borough Safeguarding Children Board, said: “The board has been working very hard to ensure vulnerable children and young people are protected from all forms of abuse.
“Together with Rochdale Borough Council, Greater Manchester Police, the Crown Prosecution Service, the NHS and our other members we have clear strategies in place to combat child sexual exploitation, which sadly is happening in most towns and cities.”
