LONDON: A British-Pakistani mother and her daughter were found guilty of killing the former’s lover and his friend in a car crash. Mahek Bukhari, who was famous on TikTok, was convicted by a jury along with mother Ansreen Bukhari, 47, after 28 hours of deliberations on Friday.
The crash unfolded last year near Leicester, killing Saqib Hussain and Hashim Ijazuddin, both 21. The trial at Leicester Crown Court shed light on the events leading up to the crash.
According to police, inquiries showed Mr Hussain had been in relationship with Ms Ansreen for three years. After Ansreen Bukhari tried to end the affair, Mr Hussain made threats to expose the relationship to her husband and share her videos. Ms Ansreen offered to pay back money which Mr Hussain had spent during the relationship and it was arranged for Mr Hussain to meet with Ms Ansreen and her daughter.
