TikTok Influencer guilty of Murdering Mother’s Lover

TikTok influencer Mahek Bukhari has been found guilty of murdering her mother’s lover after he and a friend were rammed off the road.

"Please, I'm begging you, I'm going to die."

TikTok influencer Mahek Bukhari has been found guilty of murdering her mother’s lover and his friend during a high-speed car chase.

Her mother Ansreen Bukhari has also been found guilty of the murders following a three-month trial at Leicester Crown Court.

Hashim Ijazuddin and his friend Saqib Hussain were travelling on the A46 in Leicestershire at around 1:30 am on February 11, 2022.

Their silver Skoda Fabia left the carriageway and smashed through a central reservation.

Leicester Magistrates Court heard that a grey Audi TT and a blue Seat Leon were spotted nearby.

All of the vehicles were travelling at speed and one car was believed to have burst into flames.

Hashim and Saqib were pronounced dead at the scene.

Just before his death, Saqib made a 999 call to police, claiming their car was being “blocked in” and rammed by attackers wearing balaclavas who had been following them in two cars.

In a recording of the call played to the court, he said:

“They’re trying to ram us off the road. Please, I’m begging you, I’m going to die.”

He also said “Oh my God”, before there was a scream and the call cut off at the sound of an impact.

The court heard they were deliberately rammed off the road in an “ambush” after Saqib threatened to use a sextape to expose his affair with the influencer’s mother.

Saqib and Ansreen Bukhari began an affair in 2019.

He persuaded her to meet him at a Birmingham hotel, where they slept together.

Saqib had “sexually explicit” videos and pictures of him and Mrs Bukhari.

Videos and images were found on Saqib’s Instagram account.

When she tried to end the affair, Saqib became “increasingly obsessive” and was “professing his love for her” but showed “anger and frustration”.

After Mrs Bukhari would not return his calls, Saqib’s anger reached a point where he threatened to leak the explicit videos.

When Mrs Bukhari told her daughter about the affair, she was angry but sent her mother a WhatsApp message that read:

“I’ll soon get him jumped by guys and he won’t know what day it is.”

Saqib was “lured” into meeting the Bukharis on the pretence of giving him back the £3,000 he said he had spent taking his lover out during their tryst.

Instead, Saqib and Hashim, who had driven his friend to Leicester for the meeting as a “favour”, were ambushed and then chased before the fatal crash.

The influencer and her mother, of Stoke-on-Trent, denied two counts of murder but jurors found them guilty.

Rekhan Karwan and Raees Jamal were also found guilty of two counts of murder.

Natasha Akhtar, Ameer Jamal and Sanaf Gulamustafa were all found guilty of two counts of manslaughter.

Mohammed Patel was found not guilty of murder or manslaughter.
