In farcical scenes, reminiscent of the Keystone Cops, a dog squad was also rushed to the Khan family residence near Glasgow .
The incident escalated after two police constables called at the upmarket house in Cambuslang to talk to the dog’s owner, Omar Khan, who wasn’t even in.
Within 10 minutes, dozens of officers arrived and unknown to the police, the massive deployment was caught on the family’s personal CCTV.
Wow! Can’t get them to turn out at all, usually. Much less take this sort of action.
…the family have now lodged an official complaint with Police Scotland.The Khans claim they were subjected to racism, assault and harrassment, alleging that Imran was called a black b*****d by the constable who arrested him.
Ah, the racism card! Is there a slick lawyer pushing for maximum compo, I wonder?
Last night Aamer Anwar, the lawyer acting for Yusuf and Imran, said the male officer had sparked an “over the top “ reaction and the two officers had barged into the Khan home illegally.
Thought so. And all this over a dog?
Omar Khan, 25, faced having Alsatian Shiro destroyed after it allegedly escaped from his garden and launched the attacks.Khan has been at the centre of an anti-social behaviour row with other residents in his suburban street.
And he blames the latest allegations on racism.
The long-running feud flared up after Shiro allegedly bit a female dog-walker before attacking another woman.
Trained handlers were called in to seize the dog after last Monday’s incidents.
The 28-strong Khan family have been at loggerheads with other residents in their street in Cambuslang, Glasgow, since they moved into a converted nursing home two years ago.
Neighbours started a petition against them which included complaints about high noise levels.
Hmmm. One to watch.
