British fugitive Zahid Khan parties with Busta Rhymes at VIP party in Dubai

A millionaire British fugitive has shared video of himself partying with rapper Busta Rhymes at an exclusive VIP party in Dubai while on the run from police.

Zahid Khan, 31, jailed for 10 years in his absence after being found guilty of conspiracy to defraud, met the singer at a celebrity party over the Christmas period.

Khan flew 3,500 miles to Dubai after skipping the country before his fraud trial – which involved a £500,000 number plate scam – came to an end.

In the video, American Busta Rhymes – wearing several diamond encrusted chains – leans over Khan’s shoulder and speaks to the camera. 

He reveals he is in Dubai filming a movie and refers to Khan as ‘his bro’. 

Khan captioned the video: ‘Busta Rhymes and me chilling. Dubai is a land for all, everyone is welcome it’s a land full of opportunities from owning your own business or even investing in your own home. It has a lot to offer!!

‘Every time I visit Dubai, I have met all sorts of people from business men to celebrities, in Dubai who also have investment in Dubai it’s a land where your dreams can come true. Come let’s make your dream a reality the only place to make it happen. #dubai’ 

It is the latest video to be posted by Khan since he fled Birmingham before his summer crown court case trial had ended.

The Birmingham conman jumped on a plane when his case concluded after being allowed to keep his passport during the proceedings.

Two brothers and a cousin were also jailed for their part in the scam, which had targeted a UK lottery winner.

Khan, 32, took a flight to Dubai just days before the summer trial had ended. 

The brazen conman recently posted a bizarre online video from his hideout – claiming to smash up a £30,000 Rolex.

In that video he opened a distinctive Rolex box and unravelled the apparent 18 carat Yacht Master.

He waved the timepiece in front of the camera before placing it on the table and then repeatedly bashed the face with a pair of pliers.

He later posted pictures of himself seemingly in Mumbai, India, where he has aimed abuse at legal officials after claiming he did not get a fair trial.

Ferrari-loving Khan had targeted Scottish lottery winner Gillian Bayford, who scooped a £148 million jackpot in August 2012, in the number plate scam.

Both he and his brother Aamir Khan had also both received additional 30-month sentences for smuggling illegal immigrants into the UK.

Neither the trial judge at Birmingham Crown Court nor at the Canterbury people smuggling case had asked for his passport to be handed in.

Hours after fleeing the country in June, serial criminal Khan posted a video to the judge saying: ‘Sorry, I had no choice.’

In the astonishing 16-minute minute video, sunglasses-wearing Khan claimed he skipped the country as he had not had a fair trial.

He was convicted in his absence of conspiracy to commit fraud, perverting the course of justice, plus concealing and converting criminal property.

Speaking directly to the camera and directing his comments to Judge Philip Parker, QC, he said: ‘I am making this video to let you know I am very sorry, I did not want to do what I did, but I I felt like I had no other choice.

‘Had I stayed in the UK, I was not having no justice and the only safest option I had was to leave this country.’

Back in May 2017, police had seized and crushed Khan’s £200,000 Ferrari.
