Drug dealing pair of students condemned by family as a disgrace
A drug dealing pair of students have been condemned after bringing shame on their respectable families.
Rooman Kheel, a Birmingham student, was branded an “utter disgrace” after turning to drug dealing alongside accomplice Seyed Sadat.
The two, from Derbyshire, in the East Midlands, set up a heroin and crack cocaine line for users.
They hired two runners and sent out mass marketing messages offering the drugs to almost 130 known users in their contacts list.
Derby Crown Court were told Derbyshire police saw the two offenders in the company of addicts in the city centre.
The police decided to search the car and discovered over 100 wraps of heroin and cocaine.
Laura Pitman, for Kheel, of Sinfin, said: “He is a 22-year-old with no previous convictions and his tale is a sad one.
“He was a third year university student in Birmingham studying construction management and was doing incredibly well.
“He stupidly got involved with others involved in drugs.
“He has brought shame on his family who are well known in the local area.
“His father in particular is struggling to reconcile with his son who was doing so incredibly well at university and now who is known in the community as a drug dealer.
“It is utter disgrace he has brought on his mother and father but he tells me his family are still supportive and will help him get back on the right road when he is released from prison.”
Sarah Slater, prosecuting, said: “Under the driver’s seat in a sweet package were 61 wraps of crack cocaine and 44 wraps of heroin.
“Messages found on the phones showed they had sent out mass marketing messages to 129 contacts.
“Further analysis of the phones seized showed one of them to be the main line and there were messages between the two defendants including one suggesting they should set up a new drugs line in Ilkeston.
“It is also clear they were employing two runners.
“These two defendants were running the line and swapping it between them.”
Kheel, of Montrose Close, and who has no previous convictions, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs, possession of criminal property and offering to supply class A drugs.
Sadat, 25, of Rosehill Street, Normanton, and who has one previous drugs conviction, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs, possession of criminal property and being concerned in the supply of class A drugs
