In addition to the above, Iftikhar Hussain, aged 49, formerly of Underwood Road, Wycombe, pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice. He was sentenced at Amersham Crown Court yesterday, Tuesday, 17 March 2015, to four years' imprisonment.

Reporting restrictions were in place until yesterday's sentencing. However, the case can now be reported.

On 11 May 2014, a group of five men travelled to Redfords Park in Totteridge and were approached in the park by Umar Hussain, Jaffer Ali, Adnan Talukdar, the 17-year-old youth and Yiga Mulindwa.  An altercation broke out between the two groups, which involved the victims being hit with baseball bats and metal poles. They ran to their vehicles and were chased by the offenders, before the offenders ran off.

The victims attended Wycombe General Hospital, and then travelled to Lucas Road. After parking, they began to walk through the park towards Underwood Road.  As they got to a fork in the path, a shotgun was discharged in the direction of the group, striking the victim, a 20-year-old man. Three others were also hit and suffered minor pellet wounds.

The victim was taken to the John Radcliffe hospital and was found to have over 100 pellets embedded in his torso. He has subsequently made a full recovery.
