THE CHAIRMAN of an Asian TV channel broadcasting from the East End has been found guilty of conspiracy to defraud in connection with an investigation into the theft of nearly £850,000 from a major high street Bank.

Feroze Khan, aged, 55, who is the chairman of Bangla TV based at Hackney Wick, was found guilty of conspiracy to defraud HBOS by a jury at Leeds Crown Court last Friday.

Mr Khan, of Bowes-Lyon Hall in Wesley Avenue, Silvertown, will be sentenced this Friday.

Three years ago six other men and a woman were also convicted of conspiracy to defraud at Sheffield Crown Court in connection with this same investigation.

A further man is due to stand trial Leeds Crown Court in June as part of the investigation by West Yorkshire Police.
