Three males have been jailed for a total of 39 years for their involvement in the death of a Bradford Man.
Kian Tordoff, 19 died after he was stabbed on Rawson Square in Bradford City Centre on 10 October. A 19-year-old was also injured in the attack he has since made a full recovery.
Three males were all charged with murder and attempted murder, a jury found them:
- Sheryar Khan, 17 pleaded guilty to manslaughter but was found guilty of murder by a jury and guilty of Section 18 wounding with intent, he was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 16 years
- Arbaz Khan, 21 of Yew Tree Avenue was found guilty of manslaughter and Section 20 assault and sentenced to 14 years
- Mohammed Adil Hussain, 18, of Kite Mews, was found guilty of manslaughter and Section 20 assault and was sentenced to 9 years
Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Marc Bowes of West Yorkshire Police Homicide and Major Enquiry team said:
“The attack on Kian and his friend was horrific in which a group of men set upon and murdered a young man with a knife.
“This case shows the dreadful human cost of knife crime.
“Kian had his whole life ahead of him and it was cruelly cut short by these three males who were out for revenge and pre planned their attack by leaving the scene and coming back armed with weapons.
“I welcome the lengthy sentences handed down to the group for their part in his murder. I hope this sentence can bring Kian’s family some comfort and justice in what has been a horrendous ordeal for them.”
