A 39-year-old Afghan national was charged and remanded in custody for conspiracy to commit Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH) after his three-year-old son was attacked with sulphuric acid in a homewares discount store last week.

The Wolverhampton resident, who cannot be named for legal reasons, and four other men –Adam Cech, 27, Jan Dudi, 25, and Norbert Pulko, 22, who are from Slovakia and live in Walthamstow, London, and Afghan-national Jabar Paktia, 41, who also lives in Wolverhampton — appeared before Kidderminster Crown Court on Wednesday.

All of the men were remanded in custody and denied any wrongdoing through their solicitors.
