Carwash kingpin jailed over plan to flood North-East with heroin

Majid Khan

THE mastermind behind a plan to flood the North-East with heroin and cannabis was last night starting a sixteen-and-a-half-year prison sentence.

Majid Khan used his car wash business in Middlesbrough as a front for a multi-million pound plot to mass distribute drugs.

Incredibly, one of the men behind the nationwide scheme was already serving a 14 year sentence in jail.

Teesside Crown Court heard how that didn't prevent convicted drugs baron Imran Bashir helping to orchestrate the team.

Bashir brazenly discussed the evil plan during a prison visit when his wife used her mobile phone to host a conference call with Khan.

Although both men spoke perfectly good English, their conversations recorded by prison bosses were in mostly in Urdu and contained codes.

Although police recovered drugs worth £300,000 the court heard how the trade was worth millions.
