Anas Mir Iqbal, of Newham Way, East Ham, was one of four men arrested in a series of police raids across East London last Thursday aimed at cracking down on sexual exploitation.
Acting on intelligence from
Essex Police, officers from the Met’s trafficking and prostitution unit
executed warrants from 6.30 in the morning at addresses in Newham,
Barking and Dagenham, Waltham Forest, and Redbridge. A total of 12
addresses were searched.
Mr Iqbal was later charged with one count of paying a child prostitute for sexual services.
