A Bradford taxi driver has been jailed after a court found him guilty of planning to take a 13-year-old girl from school for sex.


According to the BBC, Naveed Ansari, 46, shared sexual messages with a decoy profile set up by a group of paedophile hunters in the area.

The cabbie sent an image of his genitals and arranged to meet the decoy teenage girl in Leeds.


Bradford Crown Court found the driver guilty on Friday after admitting to three child sex offences. Ansari was jailed for two-and-a-half years.


During the court hearing Prosecutor Richard Walters told the court Ansari was repeatedly told the girl was only 13-years-old during message exchanges on Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.

The married taxi driver said he would treat the girl "like a princess" and buy her presents. Ansari first claimed to be aged 20-years-old.


"He suggested he would buy her a dress and a bra and he showed her images of a teddy bear he had bought for her." Mr Walters said, according to the BBC.


Ansari urged the ‘decoy teenager’ to perform sex acts on herself, whilst telling her she must keep conversations secret or they would both get in trouble.


Ansari arranged to meet the girl for the first time in Richmond Hill, Leeds, on 23 October last year. He was met by members of the Net Justice online predator hunting group, who detained him until police arrived to arrest him.


Police officers attending found Viagra tablets, condoms and a receipt for the playsuit, which he had bought the previous night, in his car.


Ansari pleaded guilty to attempting to cause or incite a child to engage in penetrative sexual activity, attempting to meet a child following sexual grooming, and attempted sexual communication with a child.


Ansari will have to register as a sex offender with the police for the rest of his life and will be subject to an indefinite sexual harm prevention order which prohibits contact with girls aged under 16.
