Mohammed Ukkashah Qazi, a 21-year-old resident of Bradford, was brought before Bradford Magistrates Court on Friday to face a series of serious charges involving sexual offences against children.

Qazi stands accused of sexual assault on a female, along with two counts of cyber flashing, two counts of engaging in sexual communication with a child, and stalking. These charges have emerged following an investigation carried out by Bradford District Police’s Online Child Abuse Investigation Team, initiated after receiving a third-party report on Wednesday, 20 March.

During the court appearance, Qazi was remanded into custody pending further proceedings. He is scheduled to appear at Bradford Crown Court on Friday, 19 April, where the charges against him will be formally addressed.
