Convicted conman takes a pair of pliers to the watch while on the run from 10-year prison sentence

Wanted fugitive Zahid Khan has posted a bizarre online video from his hideout – claiming to smash up a £30,000 Rolex.

The Moseley conman is on the run from a 10-year prison sentence for a £500,000 number plate fraud and people smuggling.

But Khan is goading police by posting videos on his Facebook page – including one where he claims to smash up the expensive timepiece.

Facebook critics claims the watch is a fake.

In the video, the playboy fraudster opens a distinctive Rolex box and unravels the apparent 18 carat Yacht Master.

He waves the timepiece before the camera before placing it on the table and then repeatedly bashes the face with a pair of pliers.

The glass and intricate mechanisms go flying and Khan then cuts off the gold straps.

Ferrari loving Khan, 32, posted a video on his Facebook page on Monday.

He posted: “Watch me Destroy a 18k yacht master Gold Rolex.

“Money is not the only thing in life if it’s materialistic things that make you happy then you will never be happy!”

Khan jumped on a plane as the fraud case at Birmingham Crown Court concluded earlier this month after being allowed to keep his passport during the proceedings.

He was jailed for ten years in his absence after being found guilty of conspiracy to defraud over a £500,000 number plate fraud.

Two brothers and a cousin were also jailed for their part in the scam, which had targeted a UK lottery winner.

His current whereabouts are unknown, but he is believed to be hiding out in the Middle East.

Far from keeping a low profile, Khan has uploaded a stream of videos from his hideout.

He is dressed in designer gear in a stunning hi-spec apartment complete with wall to wall ocean views.

It was revealed at the trial that Khan was found guilty earlier this year of bringing illegal Afghan immigrants into the UK.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Rob Piper from West Midlands Police’s Economic Unit, said: “I would urge Khan to take a long hard look at himself in the mirror and reflect on what he’s done.

“He’s run away and left his own family to take the punishment for a criminal enterprise he orchestrated…that kind of action must be hard to live with.

“We are working with the Home Office and Interpol to trace Khan and bring him to justice.

“But I would also urge Zahid Khanto do the honourable thing and surrender to police, instead of letting hisloved ones do the time for his crimes.”
