Man Jailed for Acid Attack on Toddler, 3, Gets 'Prison Justice' from Inmates
Jabar Paktia, 42, is served extra punishment for throwing acid in 3-year-old boy's face
A man, who was jailed for his role in throwing acid in a 3-year-old's face, has received some "prison justice" from other inmates for his crimes.
Jabar Paktia, 42, was imprisoned over a sickening plot to throw acid at a toddler, three, and has now been attacked three times since arriving in prison, it has emerged.
Paktia was battered by inmates after he was found guilty for his part in the assault on the child, which took place on July 21 last year.
Paktia's young victim suffered serious burns from the attack to his face and arm and screamed, "I hurt, I hurt!" after being doused with acid in a store in Worcester, UK.
According to Metro, Dad-of-four Paktia was sentenced to 12 years in prison at Worcester Crown Court on Wednesday for his role in the depraved plot.
The group was charged with conspiring to throw sulphuric acid with intent to ‘burn, maim or disfigure’ the boy in July last year.
He had been friends with the boy’s 40-year-old Muslim father, who organized the attack in a bid to smear his estranged wife to make her look like an unfit mother.
During her evidence, the wife, who can’t be named, had earlier told the court of her estranged husband: "He also said he asked an imam whether, in our religion, he was allowed to kill me and the children because we left him for three days.
"The imam told him he wasn’t allowed to do that and instead to say a prayer.
"He said to me he has two options, to either kill me and children in this country or take us to an Islamic country where he would be able to do anything to us."
Balraj Bhatia, defending Paktia, told the court his client had been left with "significant injuries" after being attacked by fellow prisoners since being behind bars.
He said: "He has been attacked on three separate occasions in custody, receiving significant injuries as a result.
"He accepts he has been injured and may continue to be injured."
Paktia, of Wolverhampton, and his five co-conspirators, including the child’s father were caged for a total of 78 years.
Judge Robert Juckes QC described the case as "unique" and added: "I have never come across a case in which there are so many people involved in targeting a child.
"Even battle-hardened crown court judges were sickened when they heard the news that someone had attacked a three-year-old boy with sulphuric acid.
"It became increasingly apparent how well-planned this was, with links going back to the man at the heart of this attack, who was the boy’s own father."
Adam Cech, 27, who squirted the acid on the boy and Jan Dudi, 25, both of Handsworth, Birmingham were jailed for 12 years.
Saied Hussini, 41, of Harlesden, West London was sentenced to 14 years in prison, whereas Norbert Pulko, 22, of Tottenham, North London received 12 years.
The dad, from Wolverhampton, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was jailed for 16 years and was branded "monstrous" by the judge.
The court heard Cech, Dudi and Pulko had followed the three-year-old boy, his brother, sister and their mother into the shop at the Srub Hill Retail Park.
Cech then squirted the youngster with sulphuric acid as he looked at a display of footballs with his older brother.
The child suffered a 10cm burn injury to his left forearm, and a 3cm burn on his forehead, which needed specialist hospital treatment.
A seventh defendant, Martina Badiova, 23, of Handsworth, Birmingham, was cleared of plotting the attack.
