Two men have been jailed for a combined 24 years after they were caught on CCTV spiking a woman’s drink moments before raping her.
The Independent reports a court heard how East London residents Mizah Miah and Belal Ahmed had promised to show their 21-year-old friend a flat she was interested in renting in November last year.
Instead, they drove to a bottle shop and purchased some alcohol before slipping MDMA into her drink – unaware it was all being caught on the store’s security camera.
They can be seen laughing as they spike the drink before shaking it up and returning it to the car where they forced her to drink.
According to The Independent, the court heard how she lost consciousness, after which time the men raped her. She awoke several hours later, sitting on the side of the road outside the car wearing only her vest and underwear.
She woke to the sound of their laughter before they all got back in the car and drove around various car parks to retrieve her clothing.
When she was eventually released at about 3am, the victim went to a friend’s house before they went to police the following day.
Miah was sentenced to 13 years imprisonment after being found guilty of rape, administering a substance with intent to overpower to allow sexual activity, and assault by penetration.
Ahmed was sentenced to 11 years imprisonment after being found guilty of administering a substance with intent to overpower to allow sexual activity, and assault by penetration.
