Man gets 28 years’ imprisonment for attempted murder

A MAN has been sentenced to a total of 28 years’ imprisonment for stabbing four people in Wraysbury.

Satya Thakor, 36, of Normanton Road, Leicester, was sentenced at Reading Crown Court on Tuesday (4).

Thakor was found guilty by unanimous verdict at the same court on December 16 of three counts of attempted murder and one count of grievous bodily harm (GBH) with intent.

Last year, he attempted to murder a 58-year-old woman, a 34-year-old woman and a 36-year-old man at an address in Wraysbury by stabbing them several times with a knife.

He also caused minor stab wounds to a 30-year-old woman. All the victims were known to Thakor.

Thakor was charged with the offences in May last year.

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Sunny Sokhi said: “This was a brutal attack in which Thakor tried to kill several people whom he knew by repeatedly stabbing them.

“They were at home during this – in a place where they should have had every right to feel safe.

“I can only imagine how terrifying this was for his victims and what they went through that night. It is fortunate that none of them were killed, but I know that the trauma of their ordeal will stay with them for a very long time.

“It has never been clear why Thakor carried out this attack. He would not engage with our officers other than to answer ‘no comment’ during his interviews, and he refused to provide any evidence during his trial.”
