Sadly, it said the Police knew that a man jailed for the rape and murder of his 20-year-old niece had bragged about having access to a girl he planned to drug and rape, it has been revealed. Mujahid Arshid spoke to an undercover police officer about having access to a 17-year-old girl he planned to drug and rape four years before the body of his niece Celine Dookhran was found stuffed in a freezer with her throat slit in July last year.
Arshid, 33, who was jailed for life to serve a minimum of 40 years on Wednesday, also kidnapped, raped and attempted to murder a second victim.She survived but cannot be named for legal reasons.
Now, campaigners have called for an independent review of Scotland Yard’s safeguarding after it emerged that Arshid offered a girl to be raped to an undercover police officer, who was was investigating paedophiles as part of the Met’s Operation Amazon.
In 2014, an undercover police officer made contact with him through a chat room and Arshid sent him a picture he had taken of the victim.
‘How would you like to f*** a 17-year-old virgin?’ Arshid asked the police officer.
He was speaking about the woman who survived the July 2017 attack.
When the officer asked who the girl was, Arshid told him on Skype chat: ‘My girlfriend… wanna force f*** the bitch? Drug and f*** her.’
In a later Skype chat, Arshid said: ‘I’m keeping her for the right moment, I’m thinking in late November when the sun comes up very late because she will be home alone from about 7.45… we will have her until about 3.30 to 4ish.’
He also sent the officer a link to a website for ratchet tie down straps and told how he wanted to use chloroform on the victim, saying: ‘I’m keeping her for the right moment.’
Arshid also told him: ‘These kind of girls deserve rape.’
But when he was questioned, Arshid insisted a man he worked with had sent the messages and no further action was taken.
Scotland Yard said the case would be referred for a standard domestic review, but would not be referred to its directorate of professional standards or to the Independent Office for Police Conduct.
A police spokeswoman told The Times that a case file was passed to prosecutors but deemed not to reach the evidence threshold because the device Arshid used couldn’t be traced.
