LONDON: A 40-year-old Pakistani-origin man in the UK has been sentenced to 12 years in prison on charges of serial sexual attacks on female students across universities. Tahir Nazir obtained a fake university identity card and searched the internet looking for student nights so he could target vulnerable and drunk young women, Manchester Crown Court was told. He was fuelled by drinks and drugs as he followed and then attacked his victims. He was sentenced on Friday after being found guilty of a string of sex offences at his trial in March.
