A policing student has been found guilty of luring a fellow undergraduate back to his halls of residence where he was stripped naked, assaulted and humiliated by a group of men.


One of the men threatened to chop the man’s fingers off with a pair of pliers as retribution for a £400 debt – owed by the victim’s brother.

Adil Ajaib, 19, of Exeter Street, Rochdale; Syed Shah, 19, of Reservoir Street, Rochdale and  Daniaal Khan, 18, of Exeter Street, Rochdale, and Kashif Hussain, 18, of Mark Street, Rochdale, pleaded guilty to assault and false imprisonment following the incident at Sanctuary Halls, Moor Lane.

Karar Haider, 19, who lived at student accommodation, denied false imprisonment, but was convicted following a trial at Preston Crown Court.

The jury heard he knew what the men had in store for the man and lured him to the flat, where he was assaulted.


All five men will be sentenced at a later date.
