Tutor pleads guilty to 16 serious sexual offences against two girls under the age of 13

A TUTOR has finally been caught after going on the run.

Mohammed Abdul Kadir pleaded guilty to committing 16 serious sexual offences against two girls under the age of 13 whom he was teaching at the time of the attacks.

Kadir, of no fixed abode, but from the Coventry area admitted the offences at Reading Crown Court on Wednesday, March 12.

The attacks happened in Maidenhead between May 2012 and May last year.

Police say Kadir was employed by the children’s family to provide private religious tuition.

He was in the country illegally having arrived from Bangladesh in 2011.

Overall, the 32-year-old pleaded guilty to:

Two counts of sexual assault by penetration on a girl under 13 years

10 counts of sexual assault by touching a girl under 13 years

Two counts of causing a child under 13 years to engage in penetrative sexual activity

Two counts of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child

Kadir was wanted in connection with the allegations and fled to France. He was then arrested in Paris on October 30 last year under a European Arrest Warrant and was subsequently extradited to the UK to face the charges.

The pleas were formally accepted on Thursday and Kadir is due to be sentenced on April 30 at Reading Crown Court.
