Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court saw the CCTV
Independent, 8 February 2018
A curry house owner threw chilli powder in a customer’s eyes when he complained about “rubbery” chicken in the Prince of Bengal in Tonypandy, Wales.
A jury saw CCTV footage of Kamrul Islam, 47, which appears to show the chef throwing a large fistful of chilli powder in the face of a complaining diner.
Mr Islam is on trial, accused of assault occasioning actual bodily harm on David Evans, who he threw the spice at on 21 January last year.
Jurors were told that Mr Evans was taken to hospital and a saline drip was used to clean his eyes. He was found to have suffered burns when the spice landed on him.
Mr Islam, of Llewellyn Street, Pentre, was arrested later that night.
- Kafir: A non-Muslim. Entitled: What a Muslim can do to a non-Muslim based on superiority. Stupid: What the West has become in allowing people living in the 7th Century to live in our nations. Dead: What the West will become unless we wake up and understand who we are dealing with.
- Muslim trash.
- Typical violent muslim. Throwing ground hot pepper into the eyes can permanently harm vision or in some cases cause permanent blindness. If inhaled, it can also cause severe respiratory distress and lead to death. This animal needs to be locked away for the rest of his wretched life. Of course with this being the UK run by liberal judges, he’ll just pay a small fine and be back in the kitchen to assault someone else.
- Infidels should not complain. Who are they? They deserve rubber chicken!
- No curry for you!!!
- I wonder, if, at some point we’ll learn to stop letting these people come here. They act like animals.
- Islam strikes again!
- who threw the first lunch?
- The racist pig got what he deserved.
- Lock him up before he graduates to throwing acid.
Curry house chef not guilty of Tonypandy chilli powder attack
BBC, 9 February 2018
A curry house chef who threw chilli powder into a customer’s eyes after he complained about “rubbery” chicken, has been found not guilty of assault.
Kamrul Islam, 47, of Pentre, Rhondda Cynon Taff, was accused of attacking David Evans at the Prince of Bengal in Tonypandy on 21 January 2017.
Mr Islam denied causing actual bodily harm, saying it was self-defence because Mr Evans was being aggressive.
He was found not guilty by a jury at Merthyr Crown Court on Friday.
The court heard how pipe-fitter Mr Evans, 47, had been out for dinner with his wife, Michelle, 48, a college lecturer, when they complained the chicken was “tough and rubbery”.
Mr Islam came out of the kitchen to deal with the complaint, but a row started and he returned to the kitchen and grabbed a handful of chilli powder.
The chef said he feared he would be hit by Mr Evans and threw the chilli powder in self defence.
I’M ASSUMING THAT ISLAM WAS “JUDGED BY A JURY OF HIS PEERS”
