Uber driver jailed for eight years after raping 20-year-old passenger picked up from Coventry hotel



An Uber driver raped a woman after picking her up from a hotel in Coventry to take her home to Nottingham.


Mustak Ahmad Abdulhai Mulla collected the 20-year-old on the morning of 5 June 2021.

During the journey, Mulla stopped on a side road, near Clifton, and raped her on the back seat. The 47-year-old then took her home.


The incident was reported to police and following detailed inquiries Mulla was arrested two days later.


Mulla, of HMP Nottingham, was found guilty of rape following a trial in March this year.

On Friday 9 June he was sentenced to a total of eight years and four months in jail when he appeared at Nottingham Crown Court. He must also sign the Sex Offenders’ Register for life.


Detective Constable Gemma Rimmer, of Nottinghamshire Police’s Public Protection department, said: “I’d like to commend the victim for her bravery in coming forward and for trusting us to investigate her report.


“She played a vital part in Mulla’s conviction, and we hope this result brings her some closure.


"I also hope our work in this case reassures other victims that they can feel confident about coming forward and that Nottinghamshire Police treats rape and sexual assault extremely seriously.

“We will always do everything in our power to make sure predatory offenders like Mulla are held to account and victims are offered the support they need by specially-trained officers.


“We understand that victims of these offences are often coming to us for help at the most difficult time in their lives, and I want them to know that we will listen carefully to them, they will be taken seriously, we will investigate and do everything we can to get justice for them.”
