    West Yorkshire Police are on the hunt for a convicted rapist from Bradford.

    Imran Khaliq, 38, was found guilty at Bradford Crown Court last month of raping a 17-year-old girl last year.

    He failed to appear for the verdict and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

    Police have made extensive enquiries to trace him and are now issuing a public appeal to assist with their efforts.

    He is described as Asian, of slim build and around 5ft 6ins tall with links to the Greater Manchester area.

    Detective Chief Inspector Paula Bickerdike, of Bradford District Police, said: “We are appealing to the public to help us trace Khaliq, who is due to be sentenced in his absence later this year. It is important that he faces justice for this serious offence and enquiries to trace him are ongoing.”
