THE jury in the trial of ten men accused of raping and sexually exploiting two teenage girls from a Bradford care home has asked to see an A-Z Map of the city.

On the second day of its deliberations at Bradford Crown Court, the panel wrote a note to the Recorder of Bradford, Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC, requesting to see the map with reference to several locations mentioned during the trial.

While allowing the jurors to look again at some Video Identification Parade Electronic Recording (VIPER) footage shown during the case, Judge Durham Hall told them they could not have a map.

He said a final answer would be given in the morning but that was his provisional decision.

The jury was then sent home for a second night to resume considering its verdicts in the morning.

The case, that began on January 8, involves a total of 25 charges against the defendants.

Basharat Khaliq, 38, of Bradford, denies five counts of rape and one count of assault by penetration.

Saeed Akhtar, 55, of Bradford, denies two counts of causing or inciting child prostitution and one of rape.

Yasar Majid, 37, of Milton Keynes, denies one count of rape.

Naveed Akhtar, 43, of Bradford, denies three counts of rape.

Parvaze Ahmed, 36, of Bradford, denies three counts of rape.

Izar Hussain, 32, of Bradford, denies three counts of rape and one of attempted rape.

Zeeshan Ali, 32, of Bradford, denies a charge of sexual assault.

Kieran Harris, 28, of Dewsbury, denies two counts of rape.

Fahim Iqbal, 27, of no fixed abode, denies a charge of aiding and abetting rape and Mohammed Usman, 31, of Bradford, denies two charges of rape.

The trial continues.
