A vile sexual predator who raped two eight-year-old girls and indecently assaulted a three-year-old, and then recorded his sick crimes on camera, has been jailed for 14 years.

JAILED: 'Wicked and dangerous' sexual predator who raped eight-year-old girls

Balvinder Kangh, aged 60, recorded the attacks for his own gratification. The young girls could be heard crying in the footage.

Recorder Barry Berlin, sitting at Wolverhampton Crown Court, told Kangh: "This is just despicable behaviour.

"You are a wicked and dangerous man who is a high risk to children and you must be locked away for a considerable period of time."

The court heard how footage of him abusing an eight-year-old girl was found on his USB flash drive, some 10 years after the first attack.

Prosecutor Ms Michelle Heeley told the court: "The girl can be seen telling him on the video footage that she didn't want to do anything, but he does so anyway."

Kangh was arrested on June 8, 2015.

His address was searched where the electronic device was found.

Ms Heeley said after he was interviewed by police further video footage was found with sex offences against two other children.


She said one girl in the footage was 'crying and whimpering' during an attack and another film showed abuse of a three-year-old.

"There is no evidence that he distributed the footage, it appears he just made them for his own sexual gratification," she added.

Kangh, of Rosemary Cresent West, Goldthorn Park, Wolverhampton, pleaded guilty to nine counts of raping a child, one of sexual assault against a child under the age of 13 and one of taking indecent images of children.

Recorder Berlin told Kangh: "I am sentencing you for some of the vilest offences known to criminal law – child rape, filming and taking indecent photographs of children and causing a three-year-old to perform sexual acts.

"You took the children individually and abused them in the most dreadful ways.

"We all know that offences of this kind have a devastating impact on the victims, and it will also have a huge impact on your own family.

"The damage that you have caused to all these people is incalculable.

"You made these recordings of children for your own gratification, you did all sorts of unspeakable things.

"What I found particularly disturbing about this case was that from the videos, it was clear that you put these girls under pressure to do what you wanted them to do."

He was sentenced to 14 years in prison and placed on the Sex Offenders Register indefinitely.
