A NEIGHBOUR from hell has been sentenced to six months behind bars for a catalogue of offences.
Salim Ackbarally, 57, plagued residents living close to his home in De Morgan Road, Fulham.
He had a history of intimidating and threatening behaviour, including making threats to kill, and he blasted out loud music from his council home. An anti-social behaviour injunction with a power of arrest was obtained against him in December 2012, at the same time as applying for possession of his property.
In June 2013 he breached that by using aggressive behaviour towards another resident. He was arrested and excluded from his property, following a court hearing. Ackbarally failed to attend a committal hearing at West London County Court on Thursday last week and was convicted of breaching his injunction and sentenced to 26 weeks in prison. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Hammersmith and Fulham Council deputy leader, Councillor Greg Smith, said: "Ackbarally made life a living nightmare for people who had the misfortune to live near him. Residents have the right to live in peace and quiet but this man thought that he was above the law and could do as he pleased."
The council is awaiting a bailiff’s warrant to carry out the eviction.
