Shot Wokingham taxi driver 'in family dispute' over land

A taxi driver has told a court he came face to face with a gunman outside his Berkshire home.

Kadir Hussein, 40, was shot three times as he returned to his house in Wokingham in September 2010.

He told Reading Crown Court he believed he had been the target of a contract killing in a family dispute over land.

Imran Khan, 34, from Reading, Jaspal Kajla, 35, and Amjed Mahmood, 31, both from Coventry, all deny conspiracy to murder.

Jurors heard details of a long-running family feud over a development on family-owned land in Pakistan.

The prosecution alleges that Mr Khan, from Wycombe Road, Earley, who is a distant relative of Mr Hussein, hired Mr Kajla, from Hepworth Road, Coventry, and Mr Mahmood, from May Street, Coventry, to kill Mr Hussein.

Mr Hussein has since made a full recovery, the court heard.

The case continues.
