A prisoner has had three years added to his sentence after he seriously assaulted a fellow inmate at HMP Brixton.
On October 4 2014 at around 10:15 am Musib Shah, 24, attacked an inmate with a home-made blade.
Shah was detained by prison staff, who recovered the weapon and called the police.
The victim, aged 26, suffered a cut to the face which required hospital treatment but did not wish to assist with the investigation.
However, officers were able to gather enough evidence to proceed with a prosecution and on December 15 2014 Shah was charged with GBH with intent.
Shah was then sentenced to three years imprisonment at Inner London Crown Court on Friday July 17 for grievous bodily harm (GBH).
DC Nathan Burrows, who led the investigation, said “This was a violent incident in which the victim suffered a serious injury.
“This sentence sends a very clear message to those who carry knives and are intent on using them.
“We will not tolerate violence and will do everything to secure a prosecution and to ensure that justice is done.”
