A trio of kebab shop workers who left a suspected burglar with a broken cheek, eye, jaw and arm after accusing him of targeting their restaurant have been jailed.
Zafar Ahmed, 35, along with brothers Asmat Khan, 33, and Mohammed Khan, 25, were each jailed for two years after the incident at Victoria Kebabs in Nottingham on June 12 last year.
Asmat Khan had approached Adrian Perry while standing outside the kebab shop, believing he was involved in a break-in at the property earlier in the day.
Finally, the trio dragged Mr. Perry into the store where he was beaten after the security shutters closed.
This part of the attack was “too disturbing” to show, police said.

Asmat Khan had interrogated Mr Perry and filmed him on his phone.
Nottinghamshire Police were called after a public noticed the commotion. Upon arrival, one of the men told officers ‘he broke into the store’.
Perry, who did not cooperate with the police investigation, had previously been sentenced to two years and four months in prison after pleading guilty to burglary over a separate incident that took place over a pub on Christmas Day in 2018.
After the attack on June 12, he suffered numerous ‘serious’ injuries, including fractures to his eye socket, cheekbone, jaw and a fracture to his forearm.
Judge Steven Coupland has sentenced each defendant to two years in prison, half of which they will serve under duress.
Detective Inspector Danny Johnstone of the Nottinghamshire Police Department described the attack as “barbaric”, while the judge wondered why they hadn’t simply called the police if they suspected something was wrong.

He said: ‘The victim was treated in hospital after broken bones, including a broken eye socket. The psychological impact will stay with him forever.
“These three men have proven that they are capable of organized violence that goes against every fiber of our being.
“It is incomprehensible that they continued to attack and beat their victim while he lay defenseless on the ground.
“I would like to thank the public who rightly dragged the victim’s suspicious nature into the shop with Nottinghamshire Police. I’m afraid if they hadn’t, this incident would have had a very different ending.”
