A former Bradford community councillor has denied the repeated sexual abuse of a boy almost 40 years ago.

Zamurrad Khan, 57, who played a prominent role in the city’s Trident regeneration programme, is alleged to have committed buggery with the child, who cannot be named, up to 20 times when he was in his late teens.

Khan, of St Lukes Close, Little Horton, Bradford, abused the boy in an alleyway and in the back of his sports car after telling his parents they were going to the mosque, the jury at Bradford Crown Court were told.


He denies three charges of buggery and one count of indecency with a child, spanning an 18-month period between the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Before his trial began, Khan’s solicitor advocate, Ray Singh, said Khan had been a councillor and played a “prominent” role in the Trident project, which was given £50 million to deliver the Government’s New Deal for Communities.

Prosecutor Ian Howard said the buggery allegations would nowadays be charged as rape.

He said Khan was interviewed by the police after the complainant, now in his 40s, contacted them in 2015 after seeking counselling.

The man said Khan was aged 18 or 19 and he was about ten when the abuse started. He said Khan called at his home and asked to take him to the mosque. He had not seen him before but his parents agreed.
