PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A member of the Rochdale grooming gang has been pictured in the town, six years after being told he would be deported. Qari Abdul Rauf, now 52, was one of nine men sentenced in 2012 for a catalogue of serious sex offences against vulnerable victims in Rochdale and Heywood. Taxi driver and Muslim preacher Abdul Rauf, 51, was convicted of trafficking and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child. The court heard how the father-of-five trafficked a 15-year-old girl for sex, driving her to secluded areas to have sex with her in his taxi and ferry her to a flat in Rochdale where he and others had sex with her. He was jailed for six years, however, he was released in November 2014 after serving two years and six months of his sentence.

The trio challenged the move, saying it breached their human rights and the rights of their children.
