Three men have been jailed for a total of 37 years after an “appalling” attack that saw their victim stamped on the head, hit with a piece of metal and left unconscious in a Slough car park.

Reading Crown Court heard that the “premeditated” attack resulted in Infaz Mohammed Niaz being put on a ventilator.

On May 14, 2019, at around 2:45 pm, the victim had arrived for a meeting in a KFC car park in Farnham Road.

However, he was punched, kicked in the head and stamped on in an attack involving five people which was caught on CCTV.

Mr Mohammed Niaz was also hit with a piece of metal, leaving him unconscious.

Haider Anwar filmed the unconscious victim. He then posted the video on Instagram “as a trophy of violence”.

The victim suffered a head injury and was placed in a medically induced coma. He spent a month in hospital before learning to walk and talk again.

Yasir Mohammed was arrested the same day. Officers arrested Haider two days later and Rehman Anwar the following day.

The trio, all from Slough, were convicted of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

Mohammed was convicted on November 22, 2019, while Haider and Rehman were found guilty on March 23, 2020.

In a victim impact statement, he said he suffered from insomnia, constant headaches and has been advised that he is likely to have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The three men and the victim were all known to each other. The court heard that the “true reason” for the meeting in the car park may never be revealed.

Judge Sarah Campbell called it a “brutal and vicious” attack when passing sentence on June 18, 2020.

Yasir Mohammed, aged 23, formerly of Monksfield Way, was jailed for 13 years.

Haider Anwar, aged 22, of Crayle Street, was also jailed for 13 years.

Rehman Anwar, aged 27, also of Crayle Street, was jailed for 11 years.

Detective Inspector Will Crowther, of Slough police station, said:

“I am pleased with the sentences handed out, following this violent and appalling attack on the victim in a public area.”

“The sentences reflect the seriousness with which the courts will deal with offenders who commit such violent crimes, and Thames Valley Police will actively pursue offenders who commit them.

“The investigation team worked tirelessly to bring all three men to court and to face justice.

“They are dangerous and violent offenders. I hope that they will now reflect upon their actions as they serve their sentences.

“I am pleased they will not be able to bring further violence and harm to the community.”
