A pervert who abducted a 14-year-old girl from a children's home and lured her into sexual activity with him has been jailed.

Yesterday Suraj Gharu, 25, was sentenced to five years for sex offences and removing a child from the care of social services.

Isleworth Crown Court heard Gharu preyed on the girl by visiting her at the children's home where she lived. He befriended her and picked her up to stay with him several times, but did not return her.

At his home in Buchan Close, Cowley, Middlesex, he engage in sexual acts with her and tried to entice her into full sex.

His brother, Sunil, 22, made a false police statement to cover up for him. The cleaner, of Hayes, Middlesex, was jailed for nine months for perverting the course of justice.
