Cannabis farm crossbow killer will serve at least 33 years for double murder


A double-killer who used a crossbow to murder his own brother and a rival gang member has been ordered to serve a minimum term of 33 years.

Convicted drug-dealer Saghawat Ramzan killed kickboxer Khuzaimah Douglas around a minute after fatally injuring his younger brother Waseem Ramzan by mistake, following a raid on the family’s cannabis factory.

Saghawat, his son Omar Ramzan and family friend Mohammed Sageer were all jailed for life at Wolverhampton Crown Court on Friday for their roles in killing the two victims.

All three men were unanimously convicted last month of murdering Mr Douglas.

Saghawat, 47, was also convicted of murdering Waseem Ramzan, while the other defendants were convicted of his manslaughter.

Former KPMG accountant Omar Ramzan, a 24-year-old Lancaster University graduate, was handed a minimum term of 22 years.

Edinburgh-born Sageer, 33, was ordered to serve at least 20 years before he can be considered for parole.

A three-week trial was shown CCTV footage of the moment Saghawat shot his brother in the stomach with the “horrific” crossbow during a four-on-one punishment beating in response to a burglary at the cannabis grow.

A second bolt travelling at 270ft-per-second was fired at 19-year-old Mr Douglas less than a minute later, causing fatal internal injuries.

Mr Douglas was shot while being held on the ground and died at the scene outside the Ramzans’ home in Pensnett Road, Brierley Hill Dudley in the early hours of February 20 last year.

Waseem Ramzan, 36, died in hospital after the bolt that struck him was removed and hidden near the scene.
