Iden­ti­cal twins are charged with at­tack

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A PAIR of iden­ti­cal twins have ap­peared in court charged over the rape of a woman.

Mo­hammed and Aftab As­ghar were ar­rested af­ter DNA ev­i­dence taken from the scene linked the al­leged crime with one – or both – of them.

Pros­e­cu­tors have charged both of the looka­like sib­lings as they are un­able to tell which one of them is the sup­posed at­tacker.

Po­lice and the Crown Pros­e­cu­tion Ser­vice are con­tin­u­ing their in­ves­ti­ga­tion to try to de­ter­mine whether they should con­tinue to pur­sue the case against both men.

The 22-year-olds were ex­pected to en­ter pleas when they ap­peared along­side each other in the dock at Read­ing Crown Court, Berks.

How­ever, prose­cu­tor San­dra Beck re­quested more time for the Crown to pur­sue par­tic­u­lar lines of en­quiry. She said: “It is an un­usual case.” Celebs be­ware - she’s here there and every­where! Which out­ra­geous fe­male pop

star, known for

her raunchy live shows, was spot­ted buy­ing a Bre­ville TR52 Sand­wich Maker from John Lewis in Croy­don?
