A man has been jailed for two years after planning a vicious attack on his neighbour.

Jagiwan Jhally, 49, of Hayes Lane, Beckenham was found guilty of conspiracy to commit ABH at the Old Bailey on August 7 and sentenced to two years imprisonment at the Inner London crown Court on September 2.

Jhally was also ordered to pay £3,000 compensation to the victim.

Jhally has been in a long running dispute with his 58-year-old neighbour, Christopher Hudson, over the boundary between their properties, which had been the subject of a number of civil cases.

The dispute had raged on for 13 years, and Jhally repeatedly harrassed Mr Hudson.

On March 19 2013 Mr Hudson was approached and threatened by two men who claimed to be both fencing contractors and Jhally’s nephews.

They were then joined by Jhally, who continued to shout at his neighbour.

On April 23 2013, Mr Hudson passed Jhally and the two men who had previously confronted and threatened him, who followed Mr Hudson and attacked him, punching him to the ground, hitting him with a piece of wood and kicking him.

Mr Hudson required treatment at a local hospital and also at Kings College Hospital Maxillofacial Clinic for his injuries.

Investigating Officer DC James Coldham said: “Jhally denied the offence throughout and has shown absolutely no remorse at all for what happened to Mr Hudson. Indeed Jhally still refuses to name those who actually assault on the victim.”
