THE DAILY RECORD:
A pervert who raped two men after meeting them on the Grindr app is a notorious figure in Scotland’s Asian gangster underworld.
Omar Mohammed Khan – jailed for seven years this week for two appalling rapes – was caught up in a gang vendetta involving the family of Imran “Baldy” Shahid, the killer of innocent teenager Kriss Donald.In 2009, the High Court in Glasgow heard how Khan and a friend were pursued in a car by two armed brothers of Shahid and fellow murderer Faisal Mushtaq, who had been jailed for life.
Ahsan Shahid, 24, and Farooq Mushtaq, 25, were jailed for the vendetta – which arose from Khan’s brother, Sheban Khan, now 31, being a key witness in Kriss’s murder trial in 2006.
One source told the Record: “Omar Khan is well known in the south side of Glasgow but kept his sexuality a secret.
“He’s told his family he was innocent of any rapes and they’re standing by him but what he did was awful.”
The source said Khan was “out of their league” in dealings with Baldy’s evil gang in years past.
He said: “When Omar got chased by Shahid and Mushtaq, he was just a boy and was targeted by people who were prepared to use a lot of violence.
Khan, a director of his family’s Khan Autos business in Glasgow’s Govanhill, has also been repeatedly accused of being a neighbour from hell in Cambuslang, near Glasgow.
