TWO women have been charged after a man was found dead in the wall cavity of an old bank sparking a murder probe.

A total of four people have been charged in connection with the kidnap and killing of Asghar Badshah who was snatched from a street in Bradford in November 2019.


His body was then found on December 29 of that year at a former bank on Commercial Street in the city.

Police made three arrests related to his murder in Bradford and one in Surrey on Thursday.

Qaisar Shah, 36, Sabbah Shahmuradi, 36, Sobia Syed, 37, and Zaban Syed, 60, are all set to appear at Leeds Magistrates Court today.

Shah, from Bradford, has been charged with murder, conspiracy to kidnap and conspiracy to possess criminal property.

Meanwhile, Shahmurad, from French Wells in Woking, has been charged with murder and conspiracy to kidnap.

Sobia Syed and Zaban Syed, both from Bradford, have been charged with conspiracy to possess criminal property, police said.

Detective Chief Inspector Heather Whoriskey said: "A major policing investigation has been underway into Mr Badshah’s kidnap and murder since 2019.

“We are continuing to follow a number of active lines of enquiry in what has been a long running and complex case.

“I want to reiterate that we very much are still appealing for information, and I would ask anyone who has information who has not yet come forward to contact the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team on 101, referencing Operation Plumeham.

“Information can always also be given in total anonymity to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online.”
