Accused: Imran Khan

Imran Khan, the 32-year-old businessman who on Sunday last allegedly pummeled a disabled man in front of popular night club, Palm Court was on Thursday slapped with an attempted murder charge at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.

Khan of Austin Street, Campbellville, Georgetown was arraigned before the Chief Magistrate, Ann McLennan for the attempted murder of Romario Baljeet.

The accused was not allowed to plea to the indictable offence and as such, was remanded to prison to reappear on November 19, 2018.

On Tuesday, Khan’s brother, 37-year-old Safraz Khan was before Magistrate Fabayo Azore for gun related charges which occurred the said night but was however granted $50,000 bail.

It was previously reported, that Khan was seen on Close Circuit Television (CCTV) footage beating and kicking at Baljeet who attempted to pass between him and friends outside of Palm Court.

The victim was in the company of a female friend when he was allegedly pushed to the ground by Khan who then proceeded to kick him repeatedly to his head.

He was later picked up and rushed to a private medical facility where he is still admitted as a patient.

Khan was also implicated in 2017 for reportedly pulling a gun on Trinidadian artiste; Rodney LeBlanc also called ‘Benjai.’

Benjai’s assault which is currently before the court is focused primarily on the colleague of Khan, Maverick DeAbreu, who allegedly hurled an object which connected to the right side of the soca singer’s face, causing him to receive injuries.

Both men were reportedly in a vehicle outside of Palm Court but were reportedly blocked by LeBlanc and his entourage. It was reported that Khan exited the vehicle after LeBlanc reportedly tapped the trunk when it clipped a patron that was standing next to him.

This allegedly prompted Khan to exit the vehicle with a firearm pointed at the soca artiste while his colleague DeAbreu exited after him and allegedly followed up with the assault.
