Redbridge man sentenced for drunken assault and racial abuse in Bethnal Green station

A man from Redbridge has been sentenced for attacking two people and racially abusing a police officer in Tower Hamlets. 

Ali Naimul Hoque, from Castleview Gardens, has been sentenced to 12 months, suspended for 24 months, at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court on Monday, 5 August. 

He claimed to have drunk two litres of vodka and a “cocktail of drugs” when he launched an assault at Bethnal Green station. 

One member of staff advised him to get some fresh air when he stumbled into the station on Sunday, 14 July. 

Hoque took great offence to this and barged into the staff booth, grabbing the victim by the collar and threatening to kill him. 

The victim retreated into the control room and called the police. 

Meanwhile, Hoque continued onto a platform and punched an innocent bystander, seemingly at random. 

British Transport Police rushed to the scene where they took the violent attacker into custody.

However, during the arrest, an officer was called a “Taliban terrorist” and repeatedly racially abused by the criminal. 

Hoque later admitted to two counts of assault by beating and one count of a racially aggravated public order offence.

He was also given a four-week curfew with conditions to be at home between 8pm and 8am, which will be monitored by an electronic tag. Hoque was also ordered to pay £250 compensation and a £122 victim surcharge.

“Hoque’s behaviour was disgusting and an unacceptable way to behave towards our staff and customers,” Siwan Hayward, Director of Compliance and Policing at TfL.

“Everyone has the right to go about their day without fear or intimidation and we do not tolerate any form of physical or verbal assault.”

PC Luke Dear, from BTP, said: “Hoque’s excuse of drinking excessive amounts of Vodka is inexcusable, his violent and offensive actions were totally unacceptable.

“Violence on the rail network, particularly against members of staff who are simply doing their job, will never be tolerated.”
