The brother of a married woman who plotted to kill her boyfriend in an horrific acid attack for 'dishonouring' the family was jailed for 30 years today.
Awais Akram was left looking like a 'zombie' after being lured into a trap by his married lover Sadia Khatoon, 24, who he had met on Facebook.
Her brother, Mohammed Vakas, 26, maimed Mr Akram by pouring drain cleaner over him.
Mohammed Adeel, 20, and a 17-year-old Kosovan friend named Fabion Kuci also took part in the attack.
Vakas had discovered his sister Khatoon was seeing Mr Akram, 25, after also meeting him on the social networking website.
Khatoon's husband Shakeel Abassi also found out about Mr Akram and all three took revenge on the victim, with the help of Adeel and the teenager.
Police suspect the married couple plotted to kill Mr Akram, before fleeing the country to Pakistan where they are still in hiding.
Vakas tried to pour the sulphuric acid drain cleaner down his throat but the victim covered his mouth with his hand and it was thrown over his face and body.
Mr Akram suffered 47 per cent burns, needed four skin grafts and blood transfusions to survive, and was left looking 'like a cross between a zombie from a horror movie and the incredible hulk'.
He faces years more of surgery and treatment and struggles to leave the house alone.
Vakas was convicted of conspiracy to murder after a five-week trial at the Old Bailey and jailed for 30 years.
Adeel and Kuci were cleared of conspiracy to murder but convicted of conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm.
