A VICTIM of an alleged paedophile ring told yesterday how one gang member branded her with a heated hairpin so other perverts would know she was his.
The girl, now 19, said Mohammed Karrar burnt the letter M on her bottom when she was 12.
She told the Old Bailey: “He used a normal lighter to heat it up.
“He bent it into a letter M and stuck it on my bum so everyone would know I belonged to him.
“Basically he was branding me so people knew I was his if I ever had sex with someone else.”
She claimed she was “sold” to Karrar aged 11 by another unnamed man and the initial remained visible for three years.
Karrar, 38, of Oxford, has denied abusing her for more than a year and selling her for sex to at least three men a night.
He and eight other Asian men all deny 51 charges including prostituting, raping and trafficking six girls as young as 11 between 2004 and 2012. The trial continues.
