Afghan Family scams Council for a million quid

Fifteen members of the same family are being investigated by fraud officers after receiving up to £1million in public funds by claiming they lived in a single flat in Grenfell Tower.

The Naqshbandi family, who are from Afghanistan, have been rehoused in at least three new homes in a luxury development furnished by John Lewis.

One family member is Masi Naqshbandi, one of Britain's most notorious 'crash for cash' conmen.

He was jailed for more than seven years in 2012 after he and his gang were convicted of staging 250 crashes to make insurance claims worth £6.5million.

Masi, 33, used the proceeds to fund a lavish lifestyle, which included a holiday at the seven-star Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai.

His sentence was reduced to six years on appeal and he was freed in 2015.

Last September he met Prince William at the launch of a support centre for survivors of the Grenfell fire on June 14 last year, which killed 72 people.

The Naqshbandi family claim that a three-bedroom flat on the third floor of the tower was their main residence before the fire.

Those saying they lived in the flat include a couple and six adult children, at least three of whom have partners and a young child each.

However, only four names are believed to appear on the original tenancy agreement.

Concerns among Kensington and Chelsea council officials grew when some of the relatives started listing the flat as their address on official documentation after the tragedy.

These aren't stupid people. They're very savvy, and they take every advantage of their host nation - to suck all the blood from it.
