A man who was wanted by police for questioning about a double murder in Bradford is this morning in custody after being extradited from Pakistan.
Mohammed Zubair, who was 31 at the time, has been charged with the murders of Imran Khan (27) and Ahmedin Sayed Khyel (35), who were found dead in New Lane, Tong in May 2011.
He is due to appear before Bradford Magistrates Court today (Thursday).
Senior Investigating Officer Detective Superintendent Simon Atkinson, said:
“After five years, West Yorkshire Police has managed to arrange the extradition of Mohammed Zubair, who has been held in custody in Pakistan since November 2013.
“I would like to praise the Pakistani authorities for their assistance and endeavours in not only securing his arrest, but also ensuring his extradition back to the UK.
“This has been a process that has taken a long time to come to fruition, and is the first instance in more than 10 years that anyone has been extradited from Pakistan to the UK.”
