SPICE HIT DINER IN EYES

A CHEF claimed he flung red-hot chilli pow­der at a cus­tomer in self de­fence.

Kam­rul Is­lam, 47, is ac­cused of throw­ing it into the eyes of diner David Evans.

The pip­efit­ter was taken to hospi­tal where doc­tors flushed the chilli from his eyes with a spe­cially adapted drip.

Mr Evans, 46, claims the restau­ra­teur launched an un­pro­voked at­tack af­ter he com­plained about the “tough and rub­bery” food served to him and his wife at the Prince of Ben­gal restau­rant in Tony­pandy, Rhondda.

Is­lam, of Pen­tre, also in Rhondda, de­nied as­sault at Merthyr Tyd­fil Crown Court.

He ad­mits he threw the spicy pow­der, but claims it was a last-ditch act of self­de­fence as his diner bore down on him.

The trial was ad­journed un­til later this year.
