A convicted drug dealer who stabbed a police officer during a warrant in Gravesend will serve a further two-and-a-half years in prison

Kuran Gill, 32, attacked the PC with a knife during the incident on Wednesday 21 April 2021.

Officers had attended his home in Sun Marsh Way to arrest him and search the property as part of a drug supply investigation being carried out by the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate.

They were met with Gill holding a knife in the kitchen, who then stabbed one of the officers in his arm. The PC later underwent surgery and has since returned to full duty.

At Woolwich Crown Court on Tuesday 11 July 2023, Gill was found guilty of grievous bodily harm.

He had already previously been sentenced to seven years’ imprisonment after pleading guilty to conspiracy to import cannabis, conspiracy to supply cocaine and possession of criminal property.

Gill was part of an organised crime group who smuggled drugs into the UK from Canada. His co-offenders Gregory Blacklock, 32, from Maidstone, and Govind Bahia, 30, from Gravesend, were both jailed for three years whilst Jag Singh, 32, from London, was sentenced to four years and nine months.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Steven Brown said: ‘This officer was just doing his job, and this once again shows us that officers should not be subjected to violence when carrying out their duties.’
