Ashpak Pleads Guilty To Stabbing 15 year old In Loughborough

0

Ashpak Chowdhury, 24, will serve three years and four months in prison after a teenager was stabbed in Loughborough earlier this year.

Ashpak Chowdhury pleaded guilty at Leicester Crown Court to Section 20 Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH) and possession of a bladed article.

He was sentenced to three years and four months for the GBH charge and 10 months for the possession charge – which will run concurrently.

Chowdhury, who is also from Loughborough, was at a party on Sunday, June 17, this year, when he got into a disagreement with another party-goer.

He then left the premises, and, a short while later approached the 15-year-old victim in Burder Street and stabbed him in the leg.

Chowdhury was also issued with a 10-year restraining order prohibiting him from contacting the victim, directly or indirectly, and from entering the road in which the victim resides.

Detective Constable James Collins, who was the investigating officer in the case, said: “We know from enquiries we carried out at the time of the incident the defendant was at a party in Burder Street where he consumed drugs and alcohol.

“An argument took place in the property before he left the premises.

“He later returned to the area with a knife, which he intended to use and did. His actions could have had far worse consequences but luckily the victim has made a full recovery.

“There is no excuse for using a knife. Chowdhury now faces time behind bars for his actions.

“Knife crime is a priority for the force and the #LivesNotKnives campaign has been used to educate people on the dangers of carrying and using a bladed weapon.

“One injury caused by a knife is one too many.

“We, and our partners, are determined to educate people that the carrying of a knife in a public place is totally unacceptable.”
