The mother of a 20-year-old who was stabbed and kicked before being left to "literally bleed to death in the street" in the street has hit out at the sentences his six attackers received.

Bradley Gledhill was murdered in Batley, West Yorkshire, last year with the six men who carried out the brutal attack given a total of 81 years in prison at Leeds Crown Court, reports Yorkshire Live.

Usman Karolia, 19, Ahmed Karolia, 24, Nabeel Naseer, 18, Raja Nawaz, 19 and two previously unnamed 17-year-olds, Niqash Hussain and Irfan Hussain were sentenced after being found guilty last month following a lengthy trial.

Two friends with Bradley at the time were also stabbed, for which Nabeel Naseer and brothers, Usman and Ahmed Karolia, were sentenced for attempted murder and Usman Karolia was also sentenced for wounding.

Following the sentencing Bradley's mum, Kelly Hubbard, took to social media to say she will "take a bit of comfort in knowing that they (the killers) will never lead a normal life". S

But she believes the sentences were " disappointing, shocking even, and the judge has been lenient".

In court addressing the six guilty men, Mr Justice Kerr had said: "You thought nothing of killing him in the open air in public. A young child was watching. You thought nothing of the unending pain of Bradley Gledhill’s family.”

Usman Karolia, who brought the knife to the scene and used it to stab all three victims, was given a minimum 21-year sentence for Bradley's murder by Mr Justice Kerr.

He was also handed an 18-year sentence for the attempted murder of Bradley's friend and a five-year term for the wounding of the third victim to run concurrently with his jail term for murder.

His older brother, Ahmed Karolia, helped “immobilise” one victim as others attacked him and later launched a “casual, vicious kick” to Bradley's head as he lay on the ground.

The judge gave him a minimum 16-year term for the “hideous” murder to run alongside a 14-year sentence for attempted murder.

Mr Justice Kerr said Irfan Hussain’s role was “sadly a very aggressive one” and was “pumped up with alcohol”.

The heavily built teenager, who was 16 at the time, kicked and stamped on Mr Gledhill and gestured and bragged as he died on the street.

The minimum term will be 11 years - nine years for the murder of Mr Gledhill, increased by two years for the attempted murder of the second victim, to run concurrently with a 10-year detention order.

Nabeel Naseer, now 18, played a lesser role in both the murder and attempted murder but showed a“callous absence of remorse” and concealed evidence at his home. Mr Justice Kerr sentenced him to a minimum 11 years in jail.

A sentence of eight years at a Young Offender's Institute will run concurrently for the attempted murder.

Nikash Hussain “rushed out in pursuit” of Bradley, kicked him twice in the head and threw his phone down a drain.

He was 16 at the time and is said to have shown remorse so the judge sentenced him to a minimum term of 10 years.

In an emotional statement read out in court, Bradley's mother Kelly Hubbard said her family has been handed a life sentence as they try to come to terms with his loss.

And in her social media message she felt that the attackers had got off lightly.

She said: "I know on the surface that their sentences look disappointing, shocking even, and that the judge has been lenient. However, let’s stay dignified (as we have done throughout) and look at the bigger picture.

"The bigger picture is that these are only the minimum terms and life generally really does mean life. Our barrister has assured us that satisfying a parole board after their minimum terms are up, to release them back into society, is very difficult and even on the small chance of ever being released they will be on licence until the day they die.

"I take a bit of comfort in knowing that they will never lead a normal life and the life that they robbed my son of will have an everlasting impact on their own lives until they day they die.

Ms Hubbard said she will "take a bit of comfort in knowing that they (the killers) will never lead a normal life" (

"Fly high my warrior. You went to your grave pure with your head held high. The beautiful residents of Park Croft, with whom you spent your final moments, told me that you left this world peacefully and with dignity.

"No shouting, no swearing, no anger. You let go of your life true warrior style. No matter what the defendants families and friends say, or post about you, it’s all b******t and your legacy speaks for itself.

"You have created and left behind such a massive and awesome everlasting legacy that any person could ever wish for."
