Two men forced torture victim to strip naked and dance to Whitney Houston songs, court hears

Two men who tortured a victim before forcing him to strip naked and dance to Whitney Houston songs have been jailed for 15 years.

Sakhawat Hussain, 35, and Andre Clarke, 30, also poured boiling water over Michael Dewar's genitals during the attack and held a knife to the stomach of his pregnant girlfriend days before she gave birth.

The pair, who carried out the attack following a dispute over drugs, held the 32-year-old prisoner and used axes, a baseball bat, a hammer and a knife to inflict serious injuries upon him.

Leeds Crown Court heard Mr Dewar was bundled into a car and driven to a flat in Batley Carr in Dewsbury, where he was stripped naked and attacked with boiling water.

While at the property, Hussain and Clarke forced the victim to sing and dance to Whitney Houston songs "for their own amusement".
