A HUSBAND who was arrested over the honour killing of his ex-wife is planning to return the UK with his new British spouse, it has been reported.
Samia Shahid, 28, from Bradford, West Yorks., died in Pakistan in July 2016 after travelling to see her father, whom she was told was seriously ill.Muhammad Shakeel, who is her first cousin and currently out on bail, was arrested three years ago for the beauty therapist’s alleged murder.
Police later said he confessed to strangling her, but confessions obtained while under arrest in Pakistan are not admissible in criminal proceedings.
The case still hasn’t gone to trial three years later.
Ms Shahid’s MP Naz Shah has now written to the leader of Pakistan after finding out the alleged killer might try to come back to the UK with his new wife.
