  • Bakhtullah Safi, Kehan Safi and Habibullah Ahmadzai face sentencing in April



Three ‘remorseless’ sexual predators who tricked a lone woman into thinking she was getting into a licensed taxi after a night out before raping her and demanding a £20 fare for the journey have been found guilty. 

The victim had been walking home from a night out in Hull on July 30 last year when she got into one of a queue of cars parked on Ferensway, believing it was a taxi.

After getting inside the vehicle, the woman was driven off by the gang who then subjected her to a ‘horrific and utterly traumatising ordeal for their own perverse needs’.

Following an eight-day trial at Hull Crown Court, Bakhtullah Safi and Habibullah Ahmadzai, both 18, were found guilty of rape yesterday. Kehan Safi, 26, pleaded guilty to rape at an earlier hearing.

The trial heard how during the course of the journey, the predators continued to deceive the victim that it was a licensed taxi. Having raped her, Bakhtullah demanded a £20 fee but the woman refused and fled to safety.

Following the attack, police launched a large scale investigation and spent hours trawling through extensive CCTV in and around the Hull city centre to try and find the vehicle and the suspects.

Detectives uncovered CCTV of the moment the woman entered the vehicle and of Bakhtullah driving away towards Hull Royal Infirmary. The vehicle was identified as being registered to Bakhtullah.

Police discovered that Bakhtuallah travelled from Ferensway, where they picked her up, before dropping the woman at an address in Hull where she was allowed to get out of the vehicle. 

Officers arrested Bakhtullah, of Wellsted Street, Hull, on August 5 last year, while Habibullah Ahmadzai, also of Wellsted Street, and Kehan Safi, of Wellington Lane, Hull, were detained the next day.

All three men were interviewed by detectives and were subsequently charged with rape. 

After the jury returned a guilty verdict yesterday, the three men have been remanded into custody and are due to be sentenced on April 2. 

Officer in the case Detective Constable Ashley Webster said: ‘This was a truly disturbing case and I’m pleased these men are now behind bars and are being punished for this horrific attack.

‘I cannot begin to put into words the bravery the woman has shown throughout the investigation and court proceedings, and I want to offer my sincerest thanks as she has helped take these abhorrent men off our streets.

‘Kehan Safi, Bakhtullah Safi and Habibullah Ahmadzai are what I can only describe as ‘sexual predators’ who subjected a lone woman who had just been on a night out with friends, to a horrific and utterly traumatising ordeal for their own perverse needs.

‘They have shown no remorse for their actions, putting the woman through the further torment of a trial by refusing to admit their crimes.

‘We will never tolerate or condone any form of violence against women or girls across the Humberside force area and I hope today’s outcome provides reassurance in knowing that these men are unable to harm anybody else.

‘We are committed to making our streets safer by preventing these types of crimes, investigating reported offences and pursuing perpetrators and bringing them to justice.

‘To anyone who is or who may have been the victim of rape or sexual assault, I would urge you to please, come forward and report it to us.

‘We will listen to you and we will do all we can to take action against those responsible and bring them to justice. By working closely with other organisations, charities, and agencies, we can also ensure you are offered the help and support that is needed following these types of offences.’
