    The Homicide and Major Enquiry Team is continuing to investigate the murder of Asghar Badshah, who was kidnapped from Mayo Road in Bradford in the early hours of 30 November 2019 and whose body was recovered from the old bank, Commercial Street, Batley on 29 December 2019.

    As part of investigations three arrests were made in Bradford and one in Surrey on Thursday.

    The following people are due to appear before Leeds Magistrates Court today (Saturday).

    Qaisar Shah (36) from Mayo Crescent, Bradford, has been charged with murder, conspiracy to kidnap and conspiracy to possess criminal property.

    Detective Chief Inspector Heather Whoriskey, who is leading the investigation, 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.”

    From 2009:

    It is claimed he wanted a hitman to kill Diane Holliday as part of a bitter dispute over his father's legacy.

    Guney allegedly first approached Sabbah Shahmuradi, a grave digger at the cemetery in Woking.

    Mr Shahmuradi, a convicted criminal, later told police about Guney’s request after being arrested for robbery, the Old Bailey heard.
