Father of 'honour killing' victim Samia Shahid dies

A man accused of assisting in the murder of his daughter in Pakistan has died.

Samia Shahid, 28, died in July 2016 while visiting family in Pakistan after receiving a phone call claiming her father was critically ill.

Her father Chaudhry Muhammad Shahid, who was held as a suspected accessory and was later released on bail, died in Pakistan last week.

Her former husband, Muhammad Shakeel, from an arranged marriage, and her father were charged with her murder and her ex-husband was also charged with raping her before her death.


A documentary, Murdered for Love? Samia Shahid, was due to be broadcast on BBC Two tonight, but has been postponed following her father’s death. A BBC spokesperson confirmed the programme had been postponed due to the recent death of a member of Samia’s family but no future broadcast date has been announced.

Bradford West MP Naz Shah, who has campaigned on the case, has been interviewed for the documentary, along with accounts from her closest friends.

The documentary also includes an interview with Samia’s second husband, Mukhtar Kazam, who tells the dramatic and tragic story of Samia’s return to Pakistan.
