Getaway driver for violent gang gets three years in jail

THE GETAWAY driver for a violent gang that targeted Bradford women in their homes for gold, jewellery and cash has been jailed for three years.
Kashaf Rashid, who was already serving six years imprisonment for housebreaking and his role in a stolen vehicle ring, has now admitted his part in two aggravated burglaries, in Weetwood Road, Girlington, and Haworth Road, Heaton, at teatime on February 13, 2015.
Rashid, 26, of Penfield Grove, Clayton, Bradford, kept look-out for the gang and drove the getaway vehicle, a stolen Volvo that crashed outside Bradford Royal Infirmary shortly after the second household was attacked.


Bradford Crown Court heard yesterday that gold bangles were torn from the arms of two of the terrified victims by the knife-wielding gang.
Prosecutor Andrea Parnham said four men raided the two houses in the space of an hour, between 5pm and 6pm.
In the first incident, Faiza Arif was locked in her home by the gang after going to investigate a noise upstairs.
They demanded: “Give us the gold,” and brandished knives.
Her mother, Nusrat Rani, was also terrorised by the gang and they threatened to kill a six-year-old girl who was present at the address. Mrs Arif managed to escape out of the back door and raise the alarm at a neighbour’s house.
