Two teenage boys were the victims of an ‘honour beating’ after they chatted to two girls in Luton’s Arndale Centre.

When the older brother one of the girls got to hear about it he was so angry he ordered their abduction from the shopping centre.

The victims aged 16 and 18 were bundled into the back of a car where Akash Ali, 20, beat up the pair.

Luton crown court heard on Monday he was assisted by two friends, Mohammed Dad, 23, and Hamzah Hussain, 20.

Laura Blackband prosecuting told the court how on Sunday 12 February this year the two boys were in the Arndale around 4.30pm and, in the area of the market, got into a conversation with two girls.
