- Footage inside Goulburn supermax shows ex-B4L leader stabbing an inmate
- The victim is murder for hire boss Abuzar Sultani serving three life sentences
- Prison guards are seen watching on too afraid to intervene in the ‘shiv’ attack
A notorious former gang boss used a prison ‘shiv’ to repeatedly stab a hitman inside a cell at Australia’s most secure jail as guards watched on for more than a minute, too afraid to intervene.
Horror footage shows the ex-Brothers 4 Life Blacktown chapter leader, Farhad Qaumi, 39, pulling the razor blade out of his pants pocket and slashing at the triple murderer Abuzar Sultani, 33, whose still handcuffed and unable to defend himself.
Qaumi pleaded guilty to assault occasioning bodily harm for the May 20, 2020, attack at Goulburn Supermax in NSW on Wednesday, that left Sultani bleeding from the face and neck.
The two underworld figures share a bloody intertwined history, with Qaumi sentenced to 60 years in jail in 2017 for the execution murder of Joseph Antoun – a standover man Sultani considered a mentor.
Later that same year, Sultani and his ‘black-ops killing squad’ dubbed ‘The Afghanis’ brazenly shot dead Calabrian crime family gangster Pasquale Barbaro, 35, a one-time associate of Qaumi and B4L.

The vision of the stabbing shows Qaumi pacing back and forth in a cell before Sultani enters and stands alongside him.
The Daily Telegraph reported the two rival gangsters were put in the same room to play chess.
The moment guards unlock Qaumi’s handcuffs, he slashes at Sultani and slams the door shut.
Correctional officers can be seen through the door watching on as Qaumi taunts Sultani waving the make-shift blade across his face.
Qaumi eventually backs off , gets to his knees and puts his hands on his head as guards enter the cell.
Serious questions have been raised about why the guards took so long to step in.

‘I would always prefer to see officers come home to their families than rush into a situation that endangers their lives,’ Corrections Minister Geoff Lee said.
‘I always support officers and will ask the Corrective Services Commissioner to review the incident.’
Qaumi received and extra 19 months on top of his already lengthy sentence.
He will remain behind bars until at least 2056 for his role in the ‘violent underworld rampage’ that erupted in western Sydney in late 2013.
The violence was triggered when the B4L gang split in two and went to war, pitting the mostly Afghan Blacktown chapter against majority Lebanese Bankstown clan – led by founder Mohammed Hamzy.
In setting a maximum of 60 years, the judge said Qaumi was the ‘undisputed, and feared, leader of the B4 Blacktown’ who, more often than not used others to do his bidding.

‘There was evidence he aspired to ‘take over Sydney,’ he said.
‘One person was killed, several others were injured and the lives of at least 10 people placed in jeopardy,’ the judge said.
Meanwhile, Murder-for-hire boss Sultani 32, who studied accounting at Sydney‘s Macquarie University in the day and ran what police called a ‘black-ops killing squad’ by night, will likely die behind bars serving three life sentences.
He was convicted of the murders of Barbaro, Rebels bikie Michael ‘Ruthless’ Davey and drug dealer Mehmet Yilmaz in 2021.
