Brothers guilty of sexually assaulting 13-year-old girl

Two brothers have been found guilty of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl.

Ex-Met Police staff member Mohammad Imran Shabbir, 34, and Muhammad Farhan Shabbir, 25, from Barnet, north London, were convicted at Harrow Crown Court.

Imran Shabbir was found guilty of assaulting the girl at an address in north-west London in May 2011.

Farhan Shabbir was found guilty of sexual assault between January and March 2011. The pair will be sentenced on 22 November.

The abuse came to light after the victim told a teacher at her school.

Det Con Luke Williams, from the Child Abuse Investigation Command, said: "The vulnerable young victim in this case showed great courage in coming forward."

Both men were acquitted of another sexual assault on the same girl.
