A SEX abuse victim today claimed Asian grooming gangs get away with deprived crimes because their wives are “too scared to speak out”.
Bobby Singh, abused by a Pakistani family friend as a child, says the women “know full well what their husbands are doing” but are terrified of reporting it for fear of deportation.
The 40-year-old mum-of-three, who bravely waived her anonymity, told The Sun Online these women “live in fear” of being sent back to Pakistan and so keep quiet.
Her intervention comes as a damning report today found dozens of kids had been abused by Asian grooming gangs operating in “plain sight” after being failed by cops.
Some victims subject to “profound abuse” told carers and police officers about the sexual assaults but no action was taken, according to the report into child sexual exploitation in Manchester.
The report concluded: “This is a depressingly familiar picture and has been seen in many other towns and cities across the country.”
It also found that fears over appearing racist played a part in senior police thinking when dealing with grooming gangs.
