Accusations of Oxford sex attack firmly denied

Oxford Mail: Bilal Ahmed Bilal Ahmed

A MAN accused of a sexual assault has told a jury the allegations he faces are “totally wrong”.

Yesterday Bilal Ahmed, from Maidenhead, took the stand in Oxford Crown Court to give evidence for the first time.

The 27-year-old is accused of carrying out the crime at a shared house in Cowley Road, Oxford, in the early hours of December 17, 2011.

He is on trial alongside his cousin Zeeshan Ahmed, 28, of Palmer Road, Wood Farm, Oxford, who is accused of perverting the course of justice.

Mustafa Ahmed, 26, from London, was also a defendant in the case but yesterday admitted sexually assaulting the same complainant after she woke up on a sofa.

Bilal is alleged to have watched and encouraged Mustafa and carried out a further sex assault shortly afterwards – claims he vehemently denied from the witness box.

Colin Aylott, defending, said to him: “The crown’s allegation is that you were stood next to him.”

Bilal replied: “No that is false.”

Mr Aylott said: “They suggest you saw (the sexual assault).”

Bilal said: “No I did not.”

Mr Aylott asked: “And having seen that you asked him if he was going to have sex with her.”

Bilal replied: “No I did not.”

Mr Aylott added: “The prosecution also suggests that after that you sexually assaulted her yourself.”

Bilal said: “That is totally wrong.”

All three defendants deny the charges.

The case continues.
