Tariq Adalat, 36, was the man responsible for a shoot out between two groups  in Great Horton in October 2016.

The clash was described by police as “shockingly violent incident”.

After a long trial Bradford Crown Court jailed the 5 men for a total of 57 years.

The clash was a result of a family dispute.

Nazim Hussain, 39, Shahid Saddiq, 36, and Ajaz Saddiq, 38, were found guilty of wounding Muhammad Waris with intention to cause gross bodily harm. Ajaz was jailed for 12 years, Shahid and Nazim were jailed for 11 years.

Dhaanish Akmal, 19,and Muhammad Waris, 22, were found guilty of possession of firearm and ammunition and handling stolen goods. They were jailed for 10 and thirteen years respectively

In Tariq Adalat’s case the Jury was not able to reach a verdict relating to the firearm allegation but was found guilty of handling stolen goods.

But in yesterday’s retrial he was found guilty.

In the previous trial the court was told that Waris, Akmal and Adalat went to Ajaz Saddiq’s house in a stolen VW Polo.

When the entered the street they were blocked by two Audis, Ajaz saddiq was with his son in one and in the other Audi was Hussain and Shahid.

Adalat and Waris, who had no way out pulled out a double barrel shotgun and fired at Ajaz’s car. No one was hurt but damaged Ajaz’s car.

Before Waris could reload the gun, he was pulled out of the car and attacked the court was told.

Waris suffered multiple fractures to the face and bleeding in the brain and was admitted in hospital for a month.

Prosecutor David Brooke said, Waris, Akmal and Adalat went to Ajaz’s house in a planned manner to “endanger his life”.

The court was told Adalat was the driver of the stolen car and gave his double barrelled shotgun to Waris. When Waris was attacked Adalat ran away and returned in his Range Rover to help Waris.

The court also heard that Adalat has many previous convictions, including a armed robbery for which he was jailed for 11 years.

Defending Adalat, Mark Tomassi said there is no evidence that Adalat was the driver of the stolen vehicle and he was the one who passed on the firarm.

He added: “You have to decide whether or not he is palpably dangerous rather than just an odious individual.”

Judge Rose told Adalat: “You are manipulative, wicked, persuasive, and capable of leading people where they otherwise would not go.

“You are the man deserving of the greatest sentence in this case. You are the man responsible for everything that happened in that street. You, and you alone, are responsible for the violence there.Whatever the argument may have been, it was never of such a magnitude to justify what took place that night.

“I am strongly of the view that your familiarity with firearms makes it highly likely you were the armourer. It was you with an argument with Ajaz Saddiq, it was you who sought revenge against him. You were the driver in every sense of this incident.”

Passing an 18-year sentence with an extended four-year licence period, Judge Rose said: “I am in no doubt whatsoever that you are a very dangerous man as you are willing to use violence unmeasured. Your attitude to the law is that it doesn’t apply to you.

“It would be contrary to common sense to conclude you are anything but dangerous.”
