Gurdeep Garcha secures acquittal in Balsall Heath ‘Tit for Tat gang warfare’ Attempted Murder Trial

  • News

Gurdeep Garcha secured acquittals for his client – one of seven defendants charged with Attempted Murder, Kidnapping and Wounding With Intent. One victim had a shotgun placed in his mouth and discharged, leading to ‘catastrophic injuries,’ including the loss of both eyes.

Rival factions had fought in the Balsall Heath area of the city in what detectives described as a ‘mini war’ linked to the drugs trade.

The Prosecution case against Mr Garcha’s client was that he had been a participant in the group kidnap of a rival gang member who was dragged off the street and into a vehicle before he was driven to a secluded location and stabbed in the back and collar bone – the knife penetrating fully through his body.

In a 7 week Trial at Birmingham Crown Court, the Jury returned unanimous verdicts of ‘not guilty’ against Mr Garcha’s client.

Such was the seriousness of the case, the leading defendants received total sentences of 41 and 32 years imprisonment respectively.
