56-year-old Zabhullah Boota escaped prison after he raped an 8-year-old girl

A pedophile who was found guilty of raping an 8-year-old child, but escaped prison after the judge gave him a slap on the wrist and let him go, was stabbed by his victim six years later.

After the jury found 56-year-old Zabhullah Boota guilty of child rape, the court was stunned when the judge ruled that a prison sentence was "too harsh" and set him free after handing him a community order at Bradford Crown Court in November 2010.

A community order meant Boota was a free man who was loosely under the supervision of a Probation Trust but would serve no prison time or even receive a fine for his crime.

The victim and her family were apparently left devastated by the sheer lack of justice they'd received.

The situation was made infinitely worse when the pedophile moved into a house on the same street as the family, who was then forced to face the child's attacker on a daily basis.

Six years after the shocking verdict, the girl sought revenge and stabbed the pedophile who had destroyed her life and continued to torment her and her family, ever since, the court heard.

The girl – who cannot be named – armed herself with a kitchen knife and went to Boota’s home in Bradford, West Yorks, UK.

When her attacker opened the door with a smile on his face after seeing her standing there, she screamed, "I am going to kill you," before plunging the blade into his chest in front of his two young children.

Boota was rushed to intensive care and needed a blood transfusion after an artery supplying blood to his heart had been cut and was only just saved by paramedics and surgeons.

After stabbing her childhood abuser, the girl hugged her aunt and said:

"Tell my mum I love her."

She then handed herself in at Trafalgar House Police station, in Bradford city center.

Immediately confessing to police officers what she had done, she said, "I've killed someone" as she handed herself in.

The teenager was originally charged with attempted murder for the stabbing but the court accepted her plea of guilty to causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

The young girl's family said she had been "entirely destroyed" when Boota escaped punishment for sexually abusing her and inciting her to engage in sexual activity when she was just 8-years-old.

She was left traumatized when he was let off with just a community order, even after she was forced to give evidence at his trial because he denied the offenses, claiming she was "asking for it."

The ordeal had left her paranoid that he was "going to get her," after he moved in just a few doors down from her family.

After the trail, she was expelled from school for poor behavior.

She felt like she was living her life in a bad dream feared she would never get a husband when she grew up, the court heard.

Boota complained to the court that he was left in constant pain from the wound, that permanently scarred him, and said his "neighbors kept asking why he had been stabbed," as he gave a statement demanding justice for the attack.

Elyas Patel, the girl’s lawyer, addressed the judge and the court saying:

"Rightly or wrongly, this 15-year-old felt that the justice system had let her down.

"With Your Honour at the wheel, the justice system will not fail her today.

"She was left deeply troubled and scarred. She acted in a few moments of despair and desperation.

"This is an exceptional case which requires an exceptional course.

"This deeply troubled and damaged child, bedevilled by low self-esteem, is crying out for help."

During sentencing for the stabbing, Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC spared the teenage girl from jail at Bradford Crown Court and refused to impose a mandatory victim surcharge.

Judge Durham Hall told the schoolgirl:

"It would be a disgrace to send a survivor like you to prison.

"If anyone tries to force you, I will pay it myself."

He sentenced the girl to a two year Youth Rehabilitation Order with supervision, telling her:

"You stabbed him in the region of his heart.

"Mercifully, you did not kill him.

"He was saved by excellent medical intervention and has made a pretty full recovery."

The judge continued: 

"Why did you stab this man?

"Because when you were eight in 2009 he committed serious sexual offenses against you.

"He was treated by the courts, with hindsight, somewhat leniently but things have changed.

"Now there is condign punishment in cases of this nature, in accordance with the guidelines."

In 2010, when Boota was set free, he was made subject to a Sexual Offences Prevention Order which should have included a condition that would ban him from having any contact with his young victim.

The judge should have requested that a residence order was imposed on pedophile Boota, requiring him to move away from the victim's home, but the judge believed that Boota was being evicted from his home in Bradford anyway, so didn't impose it.

Six years on, he was still living just a few doors down from his victim, with the family left helpless.

During Boota's own trial, the judge said:

"I’m satisfied the assault was over a short period of time and I am satisfied it was a relatively minor sexual assault but any assault of a child is bound to be serious and this court must take this offense seriously as well."

Shortly afterward, the pedophile was walking away from the court, a free man.

Speaking after the 2010 court hearing the girl’s mother, who cannot be named
to protect her child’s identity, said:

"How could that happen?

"A child gets attacked and the judge gives him a community order.

"He’s a pedophile, where is the justice in that?"
