Amir Khan’s wife Faryal Makhdoom posts CCTV footage of gunpoint robbery which left her ‘sick to her stomach’
Amir Khan’s wife has posted CCTV footage of her husband being robbed at gunpoint while the two were enjoying a night out in east London.
The British boxer had his watch taken during the robbery, but fortunately, he and his wife, Faryal Makhdoom, were left unharmed.
Khan tweeted about the incident on Easter Monday, saying he had ‘a gun pointed in his face’ whilst out in Leyton.
The former light-welterweight world champion has since posted an image of his watch and the serial number in an attempt to recover the item, while his partner has uploaded footage of the incident.
Makhdoom posted a series of videos on her Instagram story beginning with the caption: “Footage of last nights armed robbery.”
She continued: “Two men coming out the car… they knew exactly what time we walked out.
“Seems like a set up to me. Considering we didn’t even post where we were.
“It makes me sick to my stomach to know someone sitting in the restaurant was probably the one plotting this.”

Khan thankfully looked in good spirits the morning after the event, posting a series of Instagram stories about a day filming with comedian Keith Lemon.
He was, however, feeling strange without his favourite accessory.
“Good morning everyone, had a good sleep last night, it was a bit mad, but glad everyone is safe.
“Feels a bit weird not wearing a watch but it is what it is. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you guys I’m all good.”
Khan posted details about the incident on Easter Monday, explaining the trauma that had occurred.
“Just had my watch taken off me at gun point in east London, Leyton,” he told his 2.1million followers.
“I crossed the road with Faryal, luckily she was few steps behind me. 2 men ran to me, he asked for my watch whist having a gun pointed in my face.
“The main thing is we’re both safe.”
Khan, 35, last fought in February where he lost to Kell Brook. While he has not officially retired from boxing, he is yet to make an announcement on who he will face next.
He was ringside on Saturday night to watch Conor Benn, but promoter Eddie Hearn doesn’t think a fight between the two is likely to happen.
