A Pakistani family abducted and savagely attacked a schoolboy in England after he was caught dating a girl from their family. According to a report published by the UK-based news portal The Sun, the brutal beating, which took place in March 2016, came to light at a hearing in Preston Crown Court on December 15.

The Bangali boy, 16, was the victim of an “honour beating” from some of the girl’s relatives. The minor was savagely kicked in the head and hit with weapons, while his attackers warned the kid “not to mess with their blood and find someone of his own kind.”

Another attacker was heard screaming instructions to his cohorts, asking them to kick the boy in the head and finish him off.

The Pakistanis then left him in front a local barber shop. The victim, who lives in Blackburn, Lancashire, was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The teenager now bears a scar on his head and refuses to leave his home out of fear.

Meanwhile, the girl’s father Mirza Baig, 48, and three others pleaded guilty to the attack at the Preston Court.

Along with the girl’s father, her brother Khizum, 29, cousin Saqib, 29, and uncle Ghazanfar, 37, were present at the court during the hearing, and are set to be sentenced next week.

On March 7 last year, Ghazanfar spotted the boy walking with his niece in Preston , and caught wind of their romantic relationship.

He picked up his niece in his car and drove off to drop her at home. He then returned and picked up the boy.

During the hearing, the prosecution said Ghanzafar locked the doors of the car and started threatening the boy as the car sped away.

He then phoned taxi driver Mirza, his son and his nephew and told them to gather near his house and bring weapons.

The gang started savagely beating the boy in a nearby neighbourhood, after going through his phone messages which revealed his romantic relationship with the girl.

It should be noted, local police had tried to interview locals about the attack, but the only witness who helped with the investigation was the victim himself.
