BIRMINGHAM: One of the victims of the Birmingham crash that killed six people has been identified as a drug dealer who had only recently been freed from prison.
Kasar Jehangir, 25, had served time for leading police on a 130mph chase in which heroin was thrown from an Audi, similar to the one involved in Sunday morning’s crash.
He was in an Audi with Tauqeer Hussain, 26 and a victim who has now been identified as Mohammed Fahsa, 30, and a fourth man, 22, who was seriously injured.
Jehangir was jailed in November 2016 after he was involved in a 130mph police chase.
Heroin was thrown from the vehicle as it was pursued along the M6 near Walsall in the early hours of 18 July, 2015.
The driver of the taxi, Imtiaz Mohammed, a father-of-six, along with a man aged 42 and a woman aged 43 died after the vehicle was smashed on its side.
Mr Mohammed, 33, described by grieving relatives as a ‘happy, loving and friendly guy’, was on his last job before heading home to his wife and family, according to his brother.
Jehangir is believed to have been thrown from the Audi S3 in the city centre crash. In November last year he was jailed for three years for the drug offence.
Jehangir’s partner revealed how she is ‘crushed’ by the death of the businessman. The woman, who did not want to be named, has been with him for seven years.
She said: ‘I’m broken. Absolutely broken. It feels as though I have gone with him, it’s absolutely devastating.
They were just going to get food at the time, it’s horrendous. The four of them were all incredibly good friends, since childhood.
‘They did everything together. We don’t yet know which one of them was driving or how it happened, that’s something for another day.’
Fahsa’s brother Mohammed Kasir, 32, said: ‘Words cannot describe how we feel. It’s obviously an incredibly sad time for the whole family, as you can imagine.
‘He was an incredible family man, he loved his family to bits. He was just a normal guy.
‘At the time he was going around with his mates, minding his own business. It’s impossible to accept what has happened.’
