Murder victim “attacked after turning other cheek to abuse”
A WITNESS has told how pensioner Mushin Ahmed turned the other cheek to racist abuse, before seeing him punched and kicked by his alleged killer.
Shane Rice told Sheffield Crown Court this morning that Dale Jones (30), of East Bawtry Road, spotted 81-year-old Mr Ahmed going to early morning prayers and asked him if he was “out grooming”.
Rotherham pensioner ‘racially abused before fatal attack’
A man racially abused an 81-year-old pensioner before launching a fatal attack with his friend, a court heard.
Dale Jones flew into a “raging fury” after a day of drinking and taking drugs and accused Mushin Ahmed of being a “groomer”, Sheffield Crown Court was told.
Mr Jones and Damien Hunt punched, kicked and stamped on Mr Ahmed as he made his way to prayers at a mosque in Rotherham in August, the jury was told.
The pair both deny murder.
