Judge: 'Aamir was destined for a special place in society'

Aamir Siddiqi was the youngest child and only son. He was a bright, gentle and courteous boy. Much loved by all his family. He was destined for a special place in society.

On 11th April 2010 you two came in wearing balaclavas and glovesmaking a terrible howling sound.

The attack on him was brutal, savage and cruel. Your concern was not this fine family.

Your concern was to get your money. You wanted your blood money. In my view it was £1000 each. What a pittance for a human life'.
