A TikTok influencer Mahek Bukhari allegedly murdered her mother’s 21-year-old lover who blackmailed her with a sex tape, a court has been told.
The 21-year-old Saqib Hussain and his friend Mohammed Hashim Ijazuddin, died when their Skoda crashed into a tree. Meanwhile, a 23-year-old Mahek Bukhari is reported to have hatched a plot ‘to silence’ Saqib Hussain from leaking revenge porn images of 45-year-old Ansreen Bukhari, as reported by SkyNews.
The reports also suggested that Saqib blackmailed Ansreen, demanding £2,000 to £3,000 in return for not releasing the explicit images and videos.
The court also heard that Mahek, concerned for the impact on her own social media following vowed to get the 21-year-old ‘jumped by guys’ in revenge.
A Metro.co.uk report suggested that Saqib and Mohammed, of Banbury, Oxfordshire, died instantly after their Skoda Fabia hit a tree at high speed and split into two on the A46 in Leicester.
The court even heard a chilling 999 call during the hearing.
The shocking clip featured Saqib pleading, “I am being followed by two vehicles. They are trying to ram me off the road. They’re right behind. They’re hitting into the back of the car very fast. I am going to be rammed off the road.”
He continued to plea, “Please sir I just need help and I am in danger. They are trying to kill me. Please I’m begging you, I’m going to die.”
Furthermore, he can be heard screaming before a loud crash is heard in the clip.
Meanwhile, Mehek has been charged with two counts of murder and an alternative charge of manslaughter alongside her mother Ansreen and friend Natasha Akhtar, 22.
The report quoted prosecutor Collingwood Thompson KC who told the jury, ‘The telephone call led to a major investigation into this case which revealed a story of love, obsession, anger, attempts at extortion and ultimately murder. This was no accident, he knew what was happening to him. That 999 call sparked a major murder investigation.”
He also told the court that Saqib’s sister had revealed he was having an affair of three years with Ansreen.
A case was opened at Leicester Crown Court today and the trio has gone on trial along with Raees Jamal, 22, Rekan Karwan, 28, Mohammed Patel, 20, Sanaf Gulammustafa, 22 and Ameer Jamal, 27, who face the same charges, reported Metro.co.uk.
