Radford teenager Tamjeed Ali tried to blackmail his brothers out of £3,000
A TEEN has been found guilty of trying to blackmail his brothers out of £3,000 by falsely claiming he'd been kidnapped.
Tamjeed Ali had denied blackmailing his brothers Forhad and Tanveer between January 22 and January 25.
But jurors at Nottingham Crown Court yesterday found Tamjeed Ali, of Cromwell Street, Radford, guilty of two charges of blackmail and one charge of perverting the course of justice following a trial.
The court had heard Forhad Ali received a telephone call from a man saying they had his brother and he had five to ten minutes to raise the cash. A few hours later, Forhad Ali received another call to say if he did not pay he would be collecting his brother from the River Trent.
