No early release for Waqas Arshad
When fire crews and paramedics arrived, Arshad lied and twice told them there was nobody in the car and said he was just a passenger. But his girlfriend 17, who had been his girlfriend for six months, was still inside the vehicle wearing her seatbelt and the door had not been opened. After the crash, police found Arshad was more than twice over the drink-drive limit and there were also traces of cannabis in his blood. 2009, he was sentenced to six years in prison and disqualified from driving for eight years at Luton Crown Court. He now wants early release from prison but had he told the police his girl friend was in the car she would still be today.
