The raid brothers failed to tell police or their lawyer that they had £38,000 in cash - in £50 notes stashed in the house.
Nothing suspicious here, move along!
Police were desperate to learn how Kahar, a postal worker, and Tesco shelf-stacker Koyair could have had such a vast sum in their house.Indeed. Some family info refarding armed robberies and adherence to the law:
The elder brother of Kahar and Koyair was arrested for three armed robberies in 2002 and later jailed for six years. Mohammed Abdullah Hasnath used a black pistol during the East London raids.
He was living at the Forest Gate house at the time of his arrest. The gun was never recovered. Kahar is also believed to have nine convictions for offences committed while he was a juvenile between 1996 and 1999.
