Two Tamil men intimidated a Sri Lankan petrol station worker into allowing them to rob the shop of alcohol, toiletries and sweets, a court heard.

Hajendra Saravanababanantha, 26, of Streatham, and Kabiloan Venayakamoorthy, 22, of Lewisham, denied robbing Murco garage in Kingston Road, New Malden, in the early hours of October 15 last year.

The pair were among a group of four who allegedly arrived at the petrol station in a BMW and demanded to be let into the closed main kiosk, Kingston Crown Court heard on Tuesday, April 24.

The prosecution claimed the group were shouting and banging on the window in an aggressive manner, a claim denied by Mr Venayakamoorthy.

The jury heard how the group allegedly terrorised the shop’s cashier for half an hour under the nose of other customers who were paying for goods while the alleged incident took place.

CCTV footage shown to the jury showed that at one point one of the other members of the group attempted to scale the counter to get to the shop worker but was pulled back by members of the group.

The footage then showed the group raiding the store, with one member of the group allegedly asking the shopkeeper for a plastic bag to help load the goods into the car.

The shop worker did not file a report to police, or tell his manager, and was said to have left for Sri Lanka the day after the alleged incident, though this was never verified by police, the court heard.

After the group left, the worker was allegedly seen scanning items from around the store.

Under police interview, read out in court, Mr Venayakamoorthy admitted taking items from the shop including toothpaste, soap and deodorant, without permission but denied making threats.

During the police interview he also said the shop worker would regularly “let them take drinks and sweets”, the court heard.

Tamil asylum seekers accused of attacking and robbing Tamil shop workers

A Tamil asylum seeker stands accused of robbing a petrol station and beating a man with a baseball bat. Hajendra Saravanababanantha, 26, is also alleged to have sent a threatening text message and defrauded another petrol station.

He denied charges of fraud, sending a threatening text message, and common assault, when he appeared at Southwestern Magistrates’ Court on January 3.

The robbery charge was sent straight to Kingston Crown Court.

The court heard an allegation that Mr Saravanababanantha attacked Mr Mochalingham Jegthasan, an off-licence worker, with a baseball bat at a property in Kingston Road, New Malden, on November 9 last year, hitting him four times.

Prosecutor Robert Earl said it was alleged that on March 28 last year he fraudulently used an All Star Fuel Card at the BP garage in Malden Rushett to buy petrol.

The prosecution said he then sent a threatening text message to Mr Ganesamoorthy Nithiyakumar, the manager of the petrol station, on May 22.

He was also charged, along with another man, of robbing Murco Petrol Garage in New Malden of £967 worth of goods, including alcohol, on October 10.

An application for bail by his defence counsel Mr. Umar Azmeh, telling the court he had no criminal record and had been working in Tesco since he came to the country in 2006 seeking asylum, was unsuccessful.

Mr. Saravanababanantha, of Rowan Road, Streatham, will face a plea and case management hearing for the robbery charge, on January 31, at Kingston Crown Court.

The charges of fraud, threatening text messaging and common assault are next to be heard at a magistrates’ court on February 2.

Another man Kabiloan Venayakamoorthy, 22, of Eastdown Park, Lewisham, will also face a plea and case management hearing at Kingston Crown Court on January 31, in connection with the alleged robbery at Murco, New Malden.(Source: Your Local Guardian)

You are learning about Evil Buddhist Monks and their Adult Monks and their Child Monks. They are all enjoying very well; while the Child Monks parents are very proud to be the Punya People.

Being Adult Monks is very hard; very sore mouth and ars.
