UK: The Mohammed and Mohammed gang jailed for kidnapping and torturing a 20-year-old

(Luton) Six men have been jailed for more than 60 years after an innocent man was kidnapped from a street in Luton last summer. Mohammed Yousaf, 22, Muhammed Hussain, 25, Jalil Uddin, 40, Saqib Rehman, 20, Mitchell Malik, 21, and a 17-year-old boy were sentenced at Luton Crown Court Friday.

The thugs kidnapped their victim at gun point in the early hours of Monday, 20 June 2016 before taking him to a house where he was held against his will for around 30 hours. During this time the gang made a number of calls to a friend of the victim, who they incorrectly believed was responsible for stealing £60,000 worth of drugs from them. During his imprisonment, the gang put a live shotgun in his mouth, stubbed out cigarettes on his arm and beat him with a knife. Ransom calls were made to the victim's relatives, and one defendant also threatened to rape him. The following morning (21 June), the victim was abandoned and left tied to the metal gate of a farm near Kensworth.

An investigation run by the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit led to the six being arrested and charged. Several weapons, including live firearms, were also recovered during searches carried out at both the address where the victim was held hostage and some of the home addresses of the offenders.
