A defiant taxi rapist has denied returning to work as a cab driver following his release from prison and continues to insist he is innocent of his crime.

Muhammad Akbar Nabi was caged for nine years in 2014 for raping and sexually assaulting a vulnerable woman in the back of his car after pretending to be the taxi she had ordered.

The father-of-three from Glengormley on the outskirts of north Belfast was released in 2018 after serving just four years in jail, and concerned sources recently contacted Sunday Life over rumours he had returned to working as a taxi driver.
