Mohammed Shahin has been jailed for more than seven years for raping a passenger
A minicab driver has been jailed for more than seven years for raping a passenger who fell asleep as he drove her home.
Vile Mohammed Shahin, 28, subjected his 20-year-old victim to what police described as a ‘sickening attack’ after picking her up in Leeds, West Yorkshire, where she had been on a night out.
It was later found that Shahin had switched off the GPS tracking system that monitored his vehicle’s movements from the moment the woman got in, suggesting he had a sinister motive from the outset.
The 28-year-old, from Bradford, pleaded guilty to rape and was jailed at Nottingham Crown Court to seven and a half years in prison.
The judge also ordered that he be deported to his home country of Bangladesh after serving his sentence.
The court heard that Shahin picked up his victim just off The Calls clubs and bar area of Leeds, after she had been on a night out with two friends whom she left to get into the cab in the early hours of September 30 last year.
She asked to be taken to her home in Baildon but fell asleep on the way.
