Teenager sentenced for part in Poplar estate attack
A teenager has been sentenced to 12 months detention and training for his part in an attack following an estate conflict.
Bodor Ahmed was just 15 at the time of the attack, when he and seven other men, including three of his brothers, targeted a teenager on the Will Crooks Estate in Poplar.
Now 17, Ahmed, of Balmore Close, Poplar, was found guilty last month of both wounding with intent and of violent disorder.
The teenager, who was studying business at Newham College and had passed all his first year exams, appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court today, where Judge Georges Khayat sentenced him to a 12 month detention and training order for each offence, to run concurrently.
Ahmed was among a gang who took part in the attack on July 10 last year, following a rivalry between gangs on the Will Crooks and Aberfeldy estates.
