Blackburn man who had ears cut off in horrific attack dies

Sajed Choudry

A Blackburn father-of-four who had his ears cut off in a horrific street attack has died.

Sajed Choudry, 41, died yesterday after being attacked in Blackburn on November 27.

He underwent a 14-hour operation to have his ears re-attached, using a skin graft from his legs to complete the surgery.

However, his condition further deteriorated after he developed a large blood clot in his heart and he died.

His daughter, Mariya Choudry, confirmed that her dad had passed away and asked for privacy at this difficult time.

Ahsan Choudry, Sajed’s older son, was also attacked during the same incident in November, had half of his hand cut off. He also suffered cuts to his head.

Following the attacks four people were charged with two counts of attempted murder and appeared before Lancashire magistrates earlier this month.

They are Sadaqat Ali, 36, Rafaqat Ali, 38, Fazal Ilhai, 62, and a 13-year-old boy who cannot be named for legal reasons.

The Crown Prosecution Service will now have to decide whether to charge them with murder.
