Two men have been jailed for sexual offences against three girls.

Esmatullah Haidaree, 46, of Farm Crescent, Slough, and Azim Ahmed, 23, of Diamond Road, Slough, were convicted at Reading Crown Court, in December.

Haidaree was found guilty of two counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and four counts of sexual assault and Ahmed was convicted of five counts of sexual activity with a child.

Ahmed was jailed for six years and Haidaree was sentenced to 24 months.

Both had denied the offences, which were committed in 2013.

Flat used

They have also been ordered to sign the sex offenders' register and have been banned from working with children. The judge also issued each of the men with a 10-year sex offences prevention order and a restraining order for 10 years.

The pair were arrested in May and June 2013, following an investigation by Thames Valley Police's Child Abuse Investigation Unit.

They were charged in March 2014 in relation to incidents involving three girls aged 14 and 15.

During the early hours of Sunday, 7 April 2013, the police were contacted by a member of the public who reported two girls were in a flat in Slough sleeping on a spare mattress.

Police said they discovered the girls, along with a third victim, had been abused by Haidaree and Ahmed.
