The paedophile gang exposed by the Three Girls TV drama have been released from prison and are roaming the same streets where they preyed on their young victims, it has been revealed.
Parents in Rochdale, Manchester, were horrified to discover that all but two of the evil perverts were freed early after completing only a portion of their sentences.
It has sparked a furious backlash with an angry mob of locals confronting one of the men just hours after an episode of the harrowing drama aired on BBC1.
The harrowing TV drama, which stars Maxine Peake and Molly Windsor, reveals how girls were targeted and raped in Rochdale.
The programme is based on the true story of two women who spent years battling for the horrific abuse to be taken seriously.
Feelings in the town were running high as the drama was shown over three nights just years after the nine-strong Asian paedophile gang was jailed.
One worried resident told the Mirror: ‘A lot of girls they abused will still be living here. People need to know they are back.’
Another added: ‘I didn’t realise they were out. I’m disgusted we weren’t informed so we could warn our children.’
Locals were furious when they spotted Abdul Rauf, who is believed to have been released after serving half of a six year sentence for trafficking and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child.
They called the police on Wednesday after spotting the 48-year-old in the street but he was seen again later that day as children played nearby.
Residents are now tracking the movements of the paedophiles, with one writing: ‘One of them lives in my street with his wife and children. He’s allowed to stay there even though our street is full of kids playing out.’
Police are powerless to act because Rauf is meeting his licence conditions – but officers assured neighbours that the paedophile was visiting his family rather than moving back in.
Of the nine men convicted over the scandal in 2012, only Shabir Ahmed, 64, who was caged for 22 years, and Mohammed Sajid, 40, who was jailed for 12 years, remain behind bars.
