A MAN who attacked and raped a schoolgirl at a house in Burnley has been jailed for four years.

The town’s crown court heard how Abdul Rofiq (37) forced himself on his victim as she struggled.

His actions, in August 2010, left a devastating impact on the girl, but he recently claimed to a probation officer compiling his pre-sentence report that she could not still be suffering any long-term effects.

The hearing was told Rofiq, a married man with a family, denied the attack when he was arrested and questioned by police in March last year but later admitted rape, in court.
