A BLACKBURN man whose four-on-one street attack on a rival triggered a shotgun raid on a residential street in December 2013 was jailed for four-and-a-half years at Preston Crown Court.

Yassar Khan, 32, hit Saghir Hussain with a knuckleduster outside Chester Street mosque before his friends joined in.


The Hussain family and neighbours in Kempton Rise, Queen’s Park, were warned violence was coming.

Khan’s friend Suhail Patel, 32, gathered golf clubs and hockey sticks for the episode.

Later four masked men emerged from a car in Kempton Rise and a shotgun was fired into the air but armed locals saw them off .

Khan, of July Street, was jailed after admitting to violent disorder and possession of a firearm with intent to cause violence.

Patel, of Blackpool Road, Preston, who was convicted of violent disorder and unrelated matters, was jailed for four years and three months.

Nine men were jailed for a total of 31 years, for similar offences.
