Paedophile found guilty of raping 12-year-old in ‘horrific reign of abuse’

A paedophile, with a penchant for extreme animal porn and child sexual abuse images, has been found guilty of raping a 12-year-old girl .

Brijeshkumar Barot, 37, of The Broadway, Harrow, was said to have carried out a ‘horrific reign of abuse’.

He was arrested in July 2015, after the girl and her family reported the abuse to police.

When police seized Barot’s phone, as part of the investigation, they discovered extreme pornographic material and he was subsequently charged with these offences, along with the rape and sexual assault of the girl.

Barot was found guilty of the rape and sexual assault of a child under the age of 13, at Southwark Crown Court, on Wednesday May 17.

He pleaded guilty to possession of extreme pornographic material relating to animals, in January this year, and also admitted possessing indecent images of children, on May 8.

Barot will be sentenced at the same court on June 14.
