A “WICKED” unlawful carnal knowledge pop WHO on the QT fathered 3 of his own daughter’s youngsters has been imprisoned for four-and-a-half years.
Ashraf Khan, 81, from William Bradford, West Yorks, was inactive once his girl confessed on her deathbed quite twenty five years agone.
Bradford Crown Court heard the woman’s husband had DNA tests to confirm the children’s parentage and reported him to police in 2012.
Abigail Langford, prosecuting, told the court the complainant in the case was born in Pakistan in the 1960s and was one of Khan’s six children.
She married her husband there in the early 1980s, before moving to Bradford to join him and her father and went on to give birth to three children before passing away.
Miss Langford said: “It was on her deathbed she told her husband the defendant was in fact the father of her three children.”

But the man did not report the matter to police straightaway and wanted to “act as a father and care for the children he had brought up as his own”.
When he was interviewed by cops in September 2016, the court heard he “denied having any sexual relations with his daughter”.
Miss Langford said a medical report concerning the three children had found various ailments “directly attributed to their incestual parentage”.
In a joint victim impact statement, the children said Khan’s offending had caused psychological damage and had impacted on their physical health.
They also paid tribute to their mother’s “honourable” husband for his “fortitude and selflessness throughout the years”.
Khan, from Bradford, pleaded guilty to three counts of incest a month ahead of a proposed trial.
His barrister, Nigel Jamieson, said his client suffered from poor health, but accepted a prison sentence would not be unjust.
The Recorder of Bradford, Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC, told Khan: “You are a very dishonourable and wicked gentleman, we all now see.”
Speaking of how the woman brought Khan’s offending to light, the judge said: “Her deathbed confession, how dreadful that must have been.
“Unburdening her soul about this awful trauma she had carried with her.”
He told Khan: “Those who do this will be regarded as very serious offenders, but in this case, the harm is off the scale.”
Speaking after the case, one of the woman’s three children said: “We would like this case to bring awareness of incest being committed, and for other people who may have experienced something similar to come forward so that other offenders who have committed similar crimes can be tried through the courts.”
They also highlighted extracts from their victim impact statement, which read: “The only one who was there for us was a man of no blood relation who brought us up as if we were his own children.
“The significant choice and sacrifice he made, we will never be able to be thank him enough.
