Nottingham man sentenced after man killed in disturbance

Three men have been sentenced to jail after Peshang Sleman was killed in 2021.

On 25 November 2021 police and ambulance crews were called to reports of a disturbance near to the Co-op on Somercotes Hill.

Mr Sleman was found injured at the scene and was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham but was pronounced dead by doctors.

Five men were charged with offences relating to the incident and the following sentences have been given:

Herish Zandi 30, of Somercotes Hill pleaded to Manslaughter and received a sentence of nine years.

Danyaal Panahi 23, of Nottingham and Sam Mohazeri 25, of Croydon Road, Caterham, Surrey, both pleaded guilty to violent disorder and were sentenced to two years and 11 months.

Mohammed Rassuli and Mohamad Ali Shekak who were previously charged had cases against them dropped.

Detective Inspector Steve Shaw who led the investigation said: “Somercotes is a quiet village within our county but in the early hours of 25 November 2021 disorder broke out between two groups, the result of this was that Peeshang Sleman was fatally stabbed and another male received serious injuries.

“Whilst the conviction confirms Zandi may not have intended to kill Peeshang, it once again shows that anyone going out in public with a knife can result in death and serious injury, regardless of what the initial intentions where.”
