Nawab Khan jailed for nine years
Det Supt Colin Prime, who leads the Operation Recall team, said: “This is yet a further case showing the commitment by West Yorkshire Police to mount continual reviews of cases where there is potential to identify those responsible either by way of traditional investigation or advancements in Forensic Science.
“A further victim is today able to add some closure to this abhorrent attack, committed by a man trusted to provide her with a safe means of transport to her home having spent the evening socialising with friends.”
In a statement, the victim said: “I am extremely relieved that my case has been finally brought to a close. The man who attacked me avoided paying for his crime for all these years, whilst the effects of what happened that night has stayed with me.
“When the police asked me if I would co-operate by giving evidence in court, it was a very difficult decision to make. I knew I would have to talk about what had happened to me and relive that night.
“However, I found the strength to do so and I am pleased that he has been brought to justice for what he has done. I am happy with the sentence given, and I feel that I can now put this behind my and get on with my life.
“Although it has been difficult for me, I hope that this will encourage other women who have been through similar circumstances to come forward.”
