6 Pakistani men who brutally murdered an English White male 20-year-old Bradley Gledhill and savagely attacked two of his friends on the streets of Batley in West Yorkshire, UK, have been sentenced to life imprisonment. However, there is no outrage over this murder and no demonstrations because he was an English White Male and those murdering him were Pakistanis. BBC that is run by Pakistani Journalists, didn’t even name 2 of the murderers initially, because they were minors even though Police has declared their names and released their pictures on their website.
Six Pakistani males have been given life sentences after a man was murdered and his two friends seriously injured in an attack on a Batley street.
The Homicide and Major Enquiry Team has welcomed the sentencing of the males for the murder of 20-year-old Bradley Gledhill in Park Croft, Batley, in June 2020.
Four of the six were also sentenced for the attempted murder of another man, with one of those men also sentenced for a Section 18 assault on the other of the three victims.
The defendants were found guilty of the offences following a trial at Leeds Crown Court.
Those sentenced were:
Usman Karolia (20) from Batley, who was sentenced to life with a minimum 21 years to serve in prison for the murder of Bradley, 18 years for attempted murder and five years for Section 18 assault.
Ahmed Karolia (24) from Batley who was sentenced to life with a minimum 16 years in prison for murder and 14 years for attempted murder.
Nabeel Naseer (18) from Dewsbury who was sentenced to life with a minimum 11 years in prison for murder and eight years for attempted murder.
Raja Nawaz, 19, Longfield Road, Heckmondwike was sentenced to a minimum of 12 years in prison for murder.
Irfan Hussain (17) from Batley, was sentenced to life with a minimum 11 years for murder and 10 years for attempted murder.
Nikash Hussain (17) from Dewsbury was sentenced to life with a minimum 10 years to serve for murder.
Sentences for those jailed for attempted murder and section 18 assault will be served concurrently alongside the life sentence.
Bradley was fatally injured in an affray incident in the street during the evening of Sunday 21 June.
The court heard that the 20-year-old and his two friends and come across their attackers by chance with no evidence existing to suggest a meeting had been planned or of there being any prior contact between the two groups.
They were then attacked by the six with all three victims receiving significant knife injuries.
Police and paramedics attended, but despite treatment including first aid from residents, Bradley did not survive his injuries.
Detective Chief Inspector Vanessa Rolfe of the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said: “This was an horrific offence in which a 20-year-old male has lost his life following an outbreak of violence in which knives were used.
“All three victims were seriously injured with Bradley paying the ultimate price in an incident which vividly demonstrates the dreadful human cost of knife crime.
“Those involved continued to attack Bradley even after he had been wounded and was laid defenceless on the floor. We welcome the sentences imposed on them today for their roles in the joint enterprise murder of a male who, at 20-years old, had his whole life ahead of him.
“The victims did nothing to provoke the horrendous attack on them and officers left no stone unturned to identify and arrest those responsible for this senseless act of violence.
“Our thoughts are with Bradley’s parents and family and the other victims in this case.
“We know that the jailing of these individuals will never compensate for Bradley’s loss but we hope seeing them brought to justice may help bring them a measure of comfort and closure.”
Mr Gledhill’s mum Kelly Hubbard described her son as ‘well-loved’, ‘kind-hearted, funny and unique’ as she marked what would have been his 21st birthday last month.
CCTV footage of the incident
Describing the footage, prosecutor Peter Makepeace QC said:
- The trio ran and split up when they were chased and Nawaz and the two youths continued the pursuit.
- Mr Gledhill ran from the ginnel, then back and forth, but was eventually cornered by Nawaz and the youngest youth between a garden wall and two cars
- The youngest youth gestured to Nawaz to tell him to ‘close off’ Mr Gledhill’s escape
- As Mr Gledhill tried to escape, he was struck by the youngest youth and though he ran away a short distance he quickly went to the ground where he was set upon further
- Nawaz stood over him and held him down to the ground as the youngest youth then each of the other accused except Naseer, come to him and kick, strike, stab or stamp on him
- The youngest youth left a fingerprint on one of the cars during the incident. One of his kicks to Mr Gledhill’s head caused his cap to fly across the road. He also bent down to pick up Mr Gledhill’s mobile phone.
- Ahmed Karolia started to ‘herd’ the ‘pack’ away
- Mr Gledhill raised his shirt to check his wounds. He then perceived they were returning to him and struggled to get up and away, but to no avail.
- Mr Hall drove away and Mr Ramsden ran after the car
- “They turned around at the top of Park Croft and drove back to their friend. As they did so you will see residents of the street coming out to help Mr Gledhill. He tries to get up and tries to get into the car, but fails.”
Six defendants ‘acted as a pack’ with ‘savage, coordinated determination’ and ‘who lived and who died was down to their good or bad fortune’
Prosecutor Peter Makepeace QC said: “The Crown’s case is not that each accused stabbed each victim. When you see the footage that is plainly not the case. Rather they acted together as a pack, each lending his support and encouragement to the other as they struck out and kicked out and stabbed out at whichever of the injured parties they happened to be nearest to.
“In a very real sense whatever actual injury each accused inflicted upon one or more of those three men was happenstance determined more by their proximity and the chance of who ran where. Who lived and who died amongst the three as a result of the attack was down to their good or bad fortune.
“The Crown say all six accused engaged in a joint enterprise to kill or at the very least cause GBH to those they pursued with savage, coordinated determination.”
Trio bragged about killing Mr Gledhill, says prosecutor
An audio clip being played to the court shows a conversation between three of the Pakistani murderers. In it, Mr Makepeace says they talked about “killing Bradley” and “getting rid of his phone”. They also “bragged” about the amount of blood generated.
He said: “There is a conversation between the three which revolves around the fact that they stabbed him and killed him and the fact that they need to get rid of his phone.
“They know the importance of that and they know they have to get rid of it and it is suggested they burn the phone or put it down a drain to stop it being tracked by police.
“They brag about the kicking and stabbing and the amount of blood they have generated.”
‘CCTV shows phone being put down drain’
CCTV footage shows one of the Pakistani murderers put Mr Gledhill’s phone down the drain, Mr Makepeace says.
“He drops the mobile phone into the drain. You see him bend down and put that phone into a drain precisely as they had planned.
“It was later recovered by police from that location once they collated CCTV and found where they had put that phone, police were able to recover it.
“Once tested, it was found to have Bradley’s blood on it.”
‘Clothing was destroyed’
The court has heard that attempts to conceal evidence saw clothing being destroyed.
‘Burnt clothing found belonged to Naseer’
Mr Makepeace said police recovered burnt clothing, consisting of blue and white Nike clothes which incorporated a pocket. Forensic analysis of that pocket recovered the DNA of one of the Pakistani Murderer Naseer.
‘CCTV shows Naseer acting out a fight’
More CCTV footage in the aftermath of the attack appears to show Naseer acting out a fight. Mr Makepeace instructs the jury that this is a matter for them to decide.
“The clothing matched the clothing that Naseer had been wearing at the time of the killing so at the very least it was his clothing.”
Residents battled to save Mr Gledhill’s life
The court has heard that residents performed CPR on Mr Gledhill to try and save him. However, due to the severity of his injuries, it is likely that he stopped breathing several minutes before the ambulance arrived.
He was taken to Leeds General Infirmary but was pronounced dead at 11.18pm.
Mr Gledhill was stabbed in heart and bled to death in the street
The cause of Mr Gledhill’s death was loss of blood, with Mr Makepeace saying that “Bradley literally bled to death in the street”.
He had three stab wounds, including one in the heart. His body also showed signs of bruising and abrasions “consistent with the the attack carried out on him and portrayed on CCTV”.
Mr Ramsden was stabbed seven times
Mr Ramsden suffered a series of “catastrophic” injuries, including seven stab wounds. He was taken to hospital and survived the attack.
Defendants ‘kept their powder dry and waited to see what evidence the crown has’
Mr Makepeace has accused the defendants of “sitting back to learn what evidence the Crown has until committing themselves”.
He says they “kept their powder dry”, which is to wait before taking action.
Points to Ponder
Shouldn’t UK stop all Economic, Military and all kind of Aid to Pakistan that has sent so many rectums to UK to destroy the culture of freedom of Europe?
Shouldn’t UK End all kind of trade benefits to Pakistan and rather switch over to India for all trade?
