A British court has jailed six men involved in sexually abusing two minor girls, using alcohol and cannabis to keep them drugged.

One of the girls was only 11 when the assaults started and was impregnated at 12, while the other girl was 13, the BBC reported.

The incidents of assault occurred between 1999 and 2001 in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, United Kingdom.

According to Judge Sarah Wright, defendant Amjad Ali had shown "that it was 60 million times more likely that you were responsible for her pregnancy rather than an unknown male".

"I have no hesitation in finding that you had sexual intercourse with her when she was heavily under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs such that she was unable to remember you," Wright told convict.

Victim's account

The victim in her statement read out to the court expressed: "There's evil and truly evil people in the world. I feel my child was the product of pure evil.

"I was drawn into a world of fear, rape and horrific abuse, I lost my childhood at the hands of those men," she recalled.

The victim revealed how she was turned down by many in her community as she felt "completely owned by these dirty old men who would do with me whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted".
