Father finally jailed for having three children with his own daughter

Ashraf Khan who fathered three children with his own daughter some 30 years ago has been jailed
He twisted secret was only discovered after his victim confessed on her deathbed in the early 1990s. The daughter’s husband, who had DNA tests done to confirm the children’s parentage, finally reported the matter to police in 2012.
Khan, now 81, was sentenced to four and half years in prison yesterday after admitting three charges of incest. Sentencing the OAP, the Recorder of Bradford, Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC, said: ‘You are a very dishonorable and wicked gentleman, we all now see. ‘Her deathbed confession, how dreadful that must have been.
Unburdening her soul about this awful trauma she had carried with her. ‘When arrested, you denied matters. Only in the month before your trial did you admit your guilt when you were confronted with the facts and had nowhere to go.
Those who do this will be regarded as very serious offenders, but in this case, the harm is off the scale. ‘You are of good character, but that is a shallow comment because you have got away with this for years.’ The court heard the complainant, one of Khan’s six children, was born in Pakistan in the 1960s.
She married her husband there in the early 1980s, before moving to Bradford, West Yorkshire, to join him and her father. She went on to give birth to three children in that decade before she died.
