Mobeen Shahid, 20, suffered a broken leg and arm when he was mown down amid an alleged vendetta involving his cousin and a 17-year-old girl.
Police are hunting a gang who tried to kill a man in an “honour attack” after a terrifying car chase.
Mobeen Shahid, 20, suffered a broken leg and arm when he was hit by a car after becoming embroiled in an alleged vendetta against his cousin, Kamal Iqbal, 18.
Kamal had been attacked then chased at high speed over his relationship with a 17-year-old girl from another Asian family.
Police have confirmed they are treating the car attack on Mobeen in Glasgow in the early hours of yesterday as attempted murder.
Last night, student Kamal told of the night of terror thatalmost ended in tragedy. He claims he was assaulted in the street on Mondaythen pursued by a gang in two cars, who rammed the motor he was in.
The gang wielded baseball bats, hammers and a cricket bat during a stand-off before Mobeen was mowed down.
Kamal said: “The night became crazy. I was attacked in the city centre then rammed in a car chase, then the attackers ran down my cousin in the street. I never set out for any trouble and I just want it to stop.”
Kamal had been at the cinema with his girlfriend, of Pollokshields, Glasgow, and says troubled flared when he put her in a taxi home from the city centre.
Kamal said: “I was with my friend. We were approached by two older men and I was grabbed by the throat by a guy, who showed me he had a lock knife in the waistband of his trousers.
“They tried to push me into an alley but my friend and I started fighting for our lives and we got the better of them and managed to run away.”
The boys got a taxi to Anniesland, where they got into the car of Kamal’s brother Jamal, who drove to Pollokshields.
They claim they were spotted by gang members in a BMW, who followed them to the west end of the city, trying to ram them and side swipe them in the car as it sped across the Kingston Bridge.
Kamal said: “We headed to my cousin’s home in Carnarvon Street and there was a Volkswagen heading towards us. We got out of the car and joined a few of my cousins and there was a bit of a stand-off and both cars were trying to ram us.
“Mobeen couldn’t get out of the way and the BMW ran into him. He got thrown in the air and was in a bad way. He is lucky they didn’t kill him.”
A relative of the young girl later appeared at the hospital and told Kamal’s family that she had returned home after “being drugged up”.
Kamal said: “That’s a load of rubbish. We were attacked before she even get home.”
Police say inquiries are ongoing and they have appealed for information.
