Khan, 48, was found guilty earlier this month of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old in 2008 before he was elected as the Conservative MP for Wakefield.
A Home Office spokesman said that the department was not aware of the allegations against him at the time.
Sammy Woodhouse, who exposed the Rotherham abuse scandal by speaking to The Times newspaper in 2013, was also on the panel – and says she is “disgusted” to have been put in such a position.
Sammy Woodhouse said: “This was important work that I undertook in good faith, but I am disgusted to have been put in a position where I was working with a man later convicted for child sexual assault.
“It is gut-wrenching for me as a survivor that they could possibly have allowed him to be considered for this role.”
Louise Haigh, Labour MP for Sheffield Heeley, said: “Khan’s victim told the Conservatives about sickening sexual abuse, and they did nothing, and then shamefully appointed him to sit alongside survivors of child sexual exploitation.”
“How could they possibly have put victims in this position?”
“The Tories have serious questions to answer over how they gave this criminal free reign to exploit his position and victims of abuse.”
The Home Office say that neither Priti Patel nor the Home Office were aware of the claims against Khan before they were made public in 2021.
“In his role as an MP, Mr Khan was asked along with several others to peer review a Home Office research paper.
“The Home Office was not aware of the allegations against him at the time and he no longer has any involvement with the department,” said a spokesperson.
Khan was expelled from the Conservative Party following the verdict on April 11.
