Muhammed Khubaib Biography
Who is Muhammed Khubaib ?
Muhammed Khubaib, 22, who owns a car and beat the victim, has been jailed for four years after admitting and blackmailing at Bradford Crown Court.
Kidnap a child from school
A schoolboy who bragged on social media about making money from trading Bitcoin was kidnapped by a gang demanding £ 10,000 for his safe return, a court heard. The terrified teeager, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was confronted outside a takeout in Bradford, West York, in May and put in a car.
After one of the kidnappers put his hand over the boy’s mouth, they beat him and forced him into the back of the Toyota Auris.
He admitted the crime of Muhammaed Khubaib in court
Shufqat Khan, Khubaib’s lawyer, said he had been in detention since May and was now learning the hard way that “you are the company you own.” He claimed that his client had been carried away by associates with a more criminal mentality.
But Judge Mansell suggested that Khubaib was one of the main drivers of the crime because he had been observing the boy at takeout and incarcerated him for four years. The court heard that the victim no longer lived in Bradford and Judge Mansell said the crime had “profound consequences” for the young man and his family. The judge explained that Khubaib would have been jailed for five years after a trial, but his guilty plea meant that his sentence could be reduced to four years.
Speaking after sentencing, West Yorkshire Police Detective Paul Maxwell said: “We welcome Khubaib’s sentencing in court today. He pleaded guilty to the two charges against him in May.
Sentenced by the court
Mohammed Khubaib has been incarcerated for four years after admitting to kidnapping and blackmail at Bradford Crown Court.
Statement from the child’s mother from the school
Khubaib, 22, then hit him in the face with a glove containing sand, Bradford Crown Court heard.
Prosecutor Laura McBride said the boy was told that he would have to call her mother and tell her to give him “£ 10,000 or her son would not come home.”
She called the boy’s mother and described how the kidnappers demanded money while her son cried, the court heard.
Ms McBride said it was agreed that the mother would give the men £ 900 and she left her home to deliver the cash when Khubaib brought the Auris to the home.
The incident was subsequently reported to the police and Khubaib was arrested a few days later.
He pleaded guilty to kidnapping and blackmail charges, but the court heard that the other after the three men involved had not been identified or prosecuted.
Bradford Registration Judge Richard Mansell QC said the young man had been “clearly the target” of the men.
He said that he was kidnapped after seeing social media posts suggesting that he had made a reasonable amount of money “from trading Bitcoin or another cryptocurrency.
