A TEENAGER has been banned from hanging out with his friend in greater London for four years after behaving in an anti-social way in Wembley.
Gowrikaran Sivarajeswaran, 18, of Greenford, received an Asbo at Ealing Magistrates Court on Wednesday, October 3.
Officers from Brent’s integrated community safety team obtained the order against Mr Sivarajeswaran, preventing him from associating with Karan Prinay Bharatia, also 18, anywhere in the greater London area or, while in a group of two or, with anyone else, behave in a public place in a way that causes, or is likely to cause, anyone to fear for their safety.
Chief Inspector for Safer Neighbourhoods, Sean Lynch said: “This individual has made life very difficult for residents and business.
“This order demonstrates that the local teams will work hard with partners and residents to re-address the balance and demonstrate that we will take such opportunities to curb anti-social behaviour that blights our communities and interferes with the quality of life.”
Labour councillor Lincoln Beswick, lead member for crime prevention and public safety said: “Brent residents rightly expect the council and police to take a strong stance against anti-social behaviour and an order for four years indicates the commitment we have to ensure the safety of our residents.”
