Drug dealer Aman Gahuniya tried to bite and spit at police officers at railway station

A drug dealer from Henham who lashed out and assaulted police officers at a railway station has been jailed.

Aman Gahuniya, 23, of Old Mead Lane, was acting erratically at Great Shelford station in South Cambridgeshire at about 6pm on August 25 last year, having fallen off his bike and injured his head.

He kept dropping £10 and £20 notes and a mobile phone. When officers searched him, they found multiple bags of cannabis, plastic zip lock bags, £90 in cash, a set of scales and a burner Nokia phone.

After being arrested for possession with intent to supply cannabis, Gahuniya became resistant and aggressive towards the officers, attempting to bite one of them on the arm.

He also tried to spit at a British Transport Police officer who was assisting before pushing him into the cell in the police van, injuring the officer’s shoulder.

At Cambridge Crown Court on Thursday March 14, Gahuniya was jailed for two years, having pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply cannabis and three counts of assaulting an emergency worker. He also activated a previous suspended sentence.

Det Con Callum Fullwood said: “Drugs cause nothing but pain and misery for everyone who directly and indirectly comes into contact with them, so I’m pleased we’ve helped to take another dealer off the streets.

“Not only this, Gahuniya also subjected my colleagues to all kinds of shameful verbal abuse and disgracefully assaulted them. He can reflect in prison on his senseless and dangerous behaviour.”
