A TEENAGER attacked a 16-year-old boy to ‘restore his honour’ over a £50 dispute.

Atiqullah Oryakhail selected a knife from a pizza restaurant before setting out to stab his friend.

The 18-year-old appeared at Bournemouth Crown Court on February 23 to be sentenced after pleading guilty to wounding with intent.

Prosecutor Charles Gabb said Oryakhail arrived in Poole after being smuggled in the back of lorries from Afghanistan.

He was arrested before being given asylum and temporarily attended Bournemouth and Poole College.

The defendant became friends with two boys at the college, who were brothers and both from Afghanistan.

Oryakhail told police that he lent the elder brother £50 to give to a mutual friend as a wedding gift, but it was never returned to him.

“He decided in his head that the elder brother had to be stabbed as some sort of way for him to regain his honour,” said Mr Gabb.

On August 18, 2022, the defendant was helping a friend at a pizza shop when he ‘deliberately selected’ a knife for the stabbing.

He returned home, packed up his belongings and set out to the man’s house at around 2am the following day.

On his way, he bumped into the man, who offered for Oryakhail to stay at his for the night and offered him food.

The defendant was going to seize his opportunity before realising the man’s younger brother was also home.

Instead, Oryakhail decided to target the younger brother, who was heading out to practice driving a moped in Boscombe.

CCTV shows the younger brother and the defendant leaving at 2.59am but 58 seconds later Oryakhail is seen getting off the bike and stabbing the 16-year-old boy in the back.

The defendant tried to use a friend as a getaway car on Ashley Road but when they found out what he had done, they kicked him out and told him to go to the police.

“I asked him if it was worth stabbing someone for just £50 and he said it was,” said the friend.

Oryakhail escaped the country and was next seen in early February 2023 attempting to enter Austria from Italy.

The 16-year-old victim still suffers from nerve damage in his hand due his injuries and experiences flashbacks and nightmares from the incident.

Mitigating, Nick Robinson, said the defendant did not intend to kill the boy and argues that the brothers were bullying him.

Mr Robinson added that he has limited education and is in a constant state of fear after witnessing his family being killed in Afghanistan as a child.

Judge Susan Evans KC sentenced Oryakhail to 57 months in prison as well as £400 to be paid to the woman who helped save the boy’s life.
