Elahi, of Sparkhill, Birmingham, is due to be sentenced next month after admitting 158 charges.

He was also given a 10 year sexual harm prevention order after admitting three counts of making indecent images of children.

On 28 June 2019, NCA officers linked to the Elahi investigation arrested Corbin – a maintenance manager – at his home in West Downs Close, Fareham, Hampshire.

Officers discovered that Corbin had bought abuse material from Elahi on four occasions with Amazon vouchers: on 5 March 2018 with a £25 giftcard; on 7 May 2018 with a £50 giftcard; a £40 giftcard on the same day; and a £180 giftcard on 10 May 2018.

NCA investigators also discovered Corbin had paid Elahi £40 via PayPal on 4 March 2018 for abuse content transferred to his online Dropbox account.

The Dropbox account contained 326 sexual abuse videos and images of girls aged between 12 and 16. There were 43 Category A images (the most severe), 26 Category B and 257 Category C.

Many of the children had been forced to state their name and age on camera.

NCA officers seized Corbin’s computers and discovered he also had an Asus tower containing 130 images and videos, and 4,534 images and videos on cloud accounts.

In total Corbin had 329 Category A images, 604 Category B and 4,990 Category C.

Forensic study of Corbin’s cloud accounts showed that on the day he was released from custody after being arrested, 494 files were deleted from one account and 182 deleted from another.

Andy Peach, NCA senior investigating officer, said: “This was one of a series of investigations into paedophiles who bought Abul Elahi’s horrific content and encouraged him to keep offending.

“Anyone who buys or accesses material like this is fundamentally responsible for more and more children being sexually abused and the lives that are wrecked because of it.

“For the NCA there is no greater priority than protecting children. We will never stop hunting men like Corbin and Elahi.”

Anybody who believes they may have been a victim of Elahi, or have information about his offending, can contact the NCA at Op.Makedom@nca.gov.uk

Child protection charity The Lucy Faithfull Foundation runs the Stop It Now! helpline which offers confidential advice to anyone concerned about their own or someone else’s behaviour towards children.
