Both Manwar Khan and Faheem Akhtar were found guilty to possession with intent to supply heroin and crack cocaine.

Faheem Akhtar who had no previous convictions and was 17 years old at that time, received suspended sentence of 12 months in a young offender institution, for 2 years, with 200 hours of unpaid work, and 2 month electronically monitored curfew and a rehabilitation activity requirement with the probation service.

Manwar Khan has been jailed for 32 months at Bradford Crown Court.
