TikTok star, 23, ‘murdered mother’s secret lover in high-speed smash after he tried to blackmail her with sex tape’ | The Sun

A TIKTOK star hatched a plot to "silence" her mum's secret lover after he tried to blackmail her with a sex tape, a court has heard today.

TikTok influencer Mahek Bukhari, 23, her mum Ansreen Bukhari, 45, and six others are charged with the murder of Ansreen's ex-lover Saqib Hussain, 21, and his pal.




All the defendants deny murder and an alternative charge of manslaughter.

Ansreen had dumped Saqib before the fireball crash in Leicestershire, the court heard.

Soon after the breakup, he threatened to expose their affair and send explicit videos and pictures of Ansreen to her dad, it is alleged.

Ansreen and her daughter Mahek are accused of cooking up a plan to "jump" Saqib in revenge.

They allegedly lured him to a fake meeting where they promised he'd collect £3k.

While heading to the fake meet-up, Saqib and his pal Mohammed Hashim Ijazuddin, who was driving, were chased by two vehicles, the court heard.

The chase ended when Saqib and Mohammed's vehicle smashed into a tree and erupted in a huge fireball on the A46 near Six Hills in Leicestershire.

Before the crash, Mahek sent a message to her mum reading: "I'll soon get him jumped by guys and he won't know what day it is."

Prosecutor Colingwood Thompson KC told the opening of their trial at Leicester Crown Court: “This is a story of love, obsession, anger, attempt at extortion and ultimately murder."

He added: "A way had to be found to silence Saqib – either by causing him a really serious injury to warn him or to silence him forever by killing him.

"The revelation of the affair could have ruined Asreen Bukhari's marriage and damaged her reputation in her community.

"It could also have affected Mahek's relationship with her father because she knew about the affair.

"Mahek was a social influencer and had a large number of followers on TikTok and the revelations of the affair might have been damaging to her standing with her followers."

Saqib estimated he spent more than £2,000 on Ansreen during their three-year affair and demanded the money back, the court heard.

His actions likely "amounted to blackmail", the court heard.

Mr Thompson added: "They set a trap that seems to have been hatched on the afternoon of February 10.

"The idea was to lure Saqib into a meeting.

"Once at that meeting, he would be confronted with numerical superiority and it was hoped he would hand the phone over.

"If he was not prepared to hand the phone over they were willing to cause him a serious injury, if not silence him completely."

In a distressing 999 call shortly before the crash, Saqib said: "I'm being followed by two vehicles. They're trying to block me in. They've got balaclavas on.

"They're trying to ram me off the road. They're trying to kill me. I'm going to die!"

He added: "I just came to Leicester to see one of my mates who goes to university here.

"They hit into the back of the car very fast. Please, I'm begging you, I'm going to die. No!"
