Cab driver who was given only a 10% chance of living following an horrific attack by multiple men says his life has changed forever

21 Feb 2019


A cab driver who was left with a fractured skull after being attacked by several men said his life has been changed entirely.

Faisal Raja, 37, was set upon in Morledge, Derby, in the early hours of 25 November, while on his way to collect food from a takeaway.


Faisal Raja, who had only been a taxi driver for two months, had finished his shift with PJ Cars when he was set upon in Morledge, Derby, in the early hours of 25 November.


Raja sustained serious injuries caused during the brutal attack and now faces a long road to recovery.  

He was put in an induced coma and doctors gave him just a 10% chance of survival.


Raja told the BBC that he used to help many people and give lifts to friends and family but now it's as if he is disabled. 

His wife Rozi, who gave birth to their first child last month, said the results of the assault were heart-wrenching.

No-one has been charged in connection with the attack.
