West Yorkshire PC Amjad Ditta, also known as Amjad Hussain a Koran following devout Muslim, was charged with sex offences and rape against children aged between 13 and 16.
Ditta was appointed in 2016 as a diversity officer “to boost numbers of Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) people applying to join the force” after then Prime Minister Theresa May said the number of black and Asian officers in the UK was “simply not good enough.”
Upon his appointment, Ditta said the police force should reflect the community it serves in terms of diversity.
Three years later and it emerges that Ditta abused his position to target teenage girls to force them into prostitution.

The charges include several counts of rape, sexual assault, supplying drugs and trafficking…(Ditta) was a serving officer at the time of the offence he has been accused of,” reports BBC News.
The Muslim officer has now been suspended from duty.

All good traditional British names (sarc), I’m sure you’ll agree.
The UK has had numerous scandals involving Muslim grooming gangs across the country.
In some cases, the abuse of children was covered up by authorities over concerns about political correctness.
