A police force withdrew plans for a televised appeal to help catch an Afghan suspected of sexually assaulting women after a race watchdog warned that it might spark a violent backlash.

Detectives were due to appear on an episode of ITV’s Manhunt to ask for help finding Noorullah Seddiqi, 34.

The Afghan had absconded from bail after being arrested in connection with the rape of one woman and the sexual assault of three others.


Devon Racial Equality Council confirmed it had asked the force to withdraw from Manhunt after previous public appeals for information on the case had led to ethnic minorities in Exeter being subjected to verbal and physical abuse.

It said in a statement that 20 or so assaults and attacks had occurred directly relating to previous reports of the case.

Bloody hell…
