Riot police raid family home of convicted fraudster over Pro-Palestinian ... trends now
Police have raided the family home of a convicted fraudster in connection with a pro-Palestine stunt where mice were thrown into McDonald's restaurant, MailOnline can exclusively reveal.
Officers in riot gear stormed a house in Birmingham on Tuesday night looking for conman-turned-TikTok influencer Aamir Khan. The 32-year-old was not there at the time and is now a wanted man.
Aamir posted a video onto his TikTok account showing a person emptying a box full of live mice painted in the colours of the Palestinian flag onto the floor of a McDonald's drive-thru on Monday night close to the StarCity entertainment complex near Aston, Birmingham.
At least two more similar stunts have followed, across the city including one last night in nearby Small Heath where live mice were hurled at staff behind the counter.
Aamir Khan was convicted of a £500,000 number plate scam in 2018 in which he and his brother Zahid stole the rights to high-value personalised car registration plates and sold them on for tens of thousands of pounds.
Ringleader Zahid fled to Dubai before he was convicted and now leads an extravagant lifestyle in Dubai.

Speaking from the Middle East via WhatsApp, the fugitive told MailOnline that police raided his elderly parents home in Hall Green in Birmingham last night.
They forced entry and later apologised after leaving empty handed, according to Zahid.
He said: 'Yesterday the police wrongly forced entry into my parents' home and left with nothing and gave an apology as they were looking for my brother who does not live there.
West Midlands Police have been contacted for comment.
In Monday's clip, a man wearing a Palestinian flag around his head is seen lifting a box out of the boot of a BMW carrying a number plate spelling 'PAIISTN'.
He then walks into the busy restaurant and dumps the spray-painted rodents on the floor – causing customers standing near the food order screens to run away in shock.
Former limousine hire company worker Aamir told MailOnline he had been sent the clip of the incident anonymously.
His brother Zahid told us Mr Khan had merely reposted the clip on TikTok which then went viral.
Mr Khan's TikTok and Instagram accounts – where friends congratulated him on the stunt – have now been deleted.
Mr Khan's Instagram page included numerous pictures of him posing on the driveway of what was once the Khan family home in Moseley, Birmingham, one as recently as a fortnight ago.
