Mahomed Rafiq Girach at Leicester Crown Court, where he was sentenced to 15 months in jail for attacking a man by throwing chilli in his eyes and slicing his nose with pliers
A 60-year-old thug has been jailed for hurling chilli powder in a man's eyes, slicing his nostrils open with pliers and threatening to cut off his penis.
Mahomed Rafiq Girach launched a frenzied attack on Ayub Lambat after he accused him of having an affair with his sister-in-law.
Girach attacked Mr Lambat as he was leaning into the boot of his car outside his home in Leicester.
He was jailed for 15 months on Tuesday after he was found guilty by a jury at Leicester Crown Court of causing actual bodily harm.
Recorder David Herbert told him: 'You behaved in a violent and disgraceful way.
'The photographs we saw during the trial showed what a horrifying injury this was.
'He was left covered in blood and momentarily fainted from the loss of blood and the shock.'
The court heard the victim was hospitalised for five days and needed surgery to repair the damage to his nose after the assault on November 4, 2014.
Describing the attack, Mr Lambat told the court Girach approached him from his left side and he felt a burning sensation.
He said: 'It was red chilli powder. My left eye was on fire and I could hardly see through the right eye. He was saying he was going to sort me out.'
Mr Lambat said he rushed into the kitchen of his home in Leicester to rinse his eyes but was followed by Girach who pinched his fingers with a pair of pliers.
He added: 'He grabbed my beard in one hand and was trying to hurt me in my groin area with the pliers. He was shouting a lot and I was trying to calm him down.
'He said 'I'm going to cut your d*** off.' He was out of control.
He grabbed the inner part of my nose with the pliers, with two hands.
'We were struggling and went into the lounge area. I fell on my back and he wasn't letting go of the pliers. I retaliated and hit him a couple of times.
'He let go and I think I lost a bit of consciousness, blood was everywhere.'
Jailing Girach, the Recorder told him: 'You were fortunate the offence was charged as it was and not a more serious charge. It was a serious injury.
'You haven't shown any real remorse for what you did to your victim - you still blame Mr Lambat for what happened, it seems.'
