A sub-postmaster beaten and left unconscious by robbers has been told that he must repay £3,000 of their haul to the Post Office.
Dilip Karavadra, 42, was attacked with a crowbar, receiving severe head injuries and a broken arm requiring a metal plate. He was taken into intensive care and needed physiotherapy to help him walk again.
After returning to work he was told that he must repay £3,000 of the £6,695 stolen because he had contributed to the loss by moving away from an open parcel hatch through which the raiders launched their attack in Upper Caldecote, Herts.
