The horrifying story is here:
A teenage tree surgeon had his hand chopped off with an axe in an ‘appalling’ attack carried out by an armed mob sparked by a road rage row in Rochdale, a court heard.
The victim, then aged just 18, was one of four workmates set upon on Church Road, Newbold, on the afternoon of October 17, 2017 by a gang of up to 20 men.
They had been summoned by Habibur Rahman, 27, who called the victims ‘white b******s’ who were in his ‘country’, Minshull Street Crown Court heard.
One of the mob, Mohammed Awais Sajid, known as ‘Skinny’, came armed with an axe.
Others were carrying knives, machetes, a clawhammer and a knuckleduster…
Sajid, of Kings Road, Rochdale, was jailed for 18 years after being found guilty of section 18 wounding.
He was acquitted of attempted murder in an earlier trial.
There were shouts of ‘f***ing injustice! and ‘police set up’ from a man in the public gallery as he was led down to the cells, while a woman fled the court in sobs of tears.
Rahman, the instigator of the shocking street violence of Milnrow Road, Rochdale, was also found guilty of an assault charge after the court heard he used a knuckleduster to punch one of the other tree surgeons in the face, breaking his nose….
His brother Zillur Rahman, 29, was jailed for three years for conspiracy to commit violent disorder after he admitted making phone calls to summon the gang.
Judge John Potter said the horrific events began at around 4pm when Habibur Rahman manager of his family’s restaurant the Baytree in Blackley, ‘took offence’ at the driving of an elderly woman on Church Road.
“You shouted abuse at her and two tree surgeons passing by intervened.
