Several months of investigation later, the court has handed down a sentence ordering Mahek Bukhari, a well-known influencer of British-Pakistani origin, and her mother, Ansreen, receive life imprisonment for the murder of Saqib and Hashim, two men. The young men, aged twenty-one each, died in a traffic accident near Leicester and both are held responsible for being guilty.
The events occurred a few days after Hussain threatened to bring to light some images of sexual content with the influencer’s mother as the protagonist. The deceased and Ansreen, 46, were in a relationship, and according to local media, the woman wanted to leave him in early 2022 after a three-year relationship, hence the threat.
According to Collingwood Thompson, a member of the prosecution, Saqib Hussain quickly became “obsessive”. Although he said that he “professed her love for her”, he at the same time showed “anger and frustration”. Local media explain that the vehicle in which they were traveling The men “broke in half after hitting a tree”, which caused a fire in just a few seconds from which they could not escape.
The two women deny the accusations and were found guilty after their car drove the vehicle in which the victims were traveling off the road. The Prosecutor’s Office, for its part, states that Hussain had met with the influencer and her mother to “do accounts” of what he “had spent during the romance”, speaking of figures close to 3,000 pounds sterling. “The Prosecutor’s Office classified this as a story of love, obsession and extortion and they are right. “He was also right to classify this case as a cold-blooded murder.”they add, according to BBC.
Mahek Bukhari, 23, has gained a significant audience on TikTok of late. He faces a sentence of at least thirty years, while his mother does it to a slightly younger, twenty-six years. In addition, there are six other suspects involved in the crime.
