Influencer Mahek Bukhari, 23, blows a kiss to her dad as she’s jailed for murdering mum’s lover after sex tape blackmail

A TikTok influencer blew a kiss to her dad as she was jailed for murdering her mum’s lover in a fireball crash amid a sex tape row.

Mahek Bukhari, 23, and her mum Ansreen Bukhari, 45, hatched the horror plot to “silence” Saqib Hussain by luring him with cash.

The 21-year-old was killed in a 100mph fireball crash alongside his pal Hashim Ijazuddin after their Skoda was rammed off the road in a high speed chase in Leicestershire.

Mahek and her mum Ansreen were found guilty of murder at Leicester Crown Court on August 4 after 28 hours of jury deliberation.

And Mahek Bukhari, Ansreen Bukhari, Rekan Karwan and Raees Jamal were today all sentenced to life.

Mahek was sentenced to a minimum of 31 years, 8 months while Jamal was jailed for 36 years.

Ansreen Bukhari was jailed for a minimum of 26 years and nine months.

Raees Jamal, 23, is sentenced to life with a minimum term of 36 years and 45 days, with 30 days on remand to be deducted.

It comes after jurors were told the crash was “no ordinary” smash, but instead a “story of love, obsession, extortion and, ultimately, cold-blooded murder”.

Judge Tim Spencer KC told Mahek she was “immature below her years” after the young woman played Monopoly while waiting for the jury to return a verdict.

He said: “Your tawdry fame through your career as an influencer has made you utterly self-obsessed with a wholly unjustified sense of entitlement and no apparent awareness of the impact you have on others, oblivious to the damage you do.

“That your solution to your mother’s problems was to engage some of your male followers to beat up Saqib Hussain speaks volumes of your warped values and maybe also of the false word of influencing that you so enthusiastically espoused.

“The moments leading up to death would have been agonising and terrifying for Saqib and Hashim.”

Saqib had been in a relationship with married Ansreen for about three years and “appeared to be in love” with her.

He was said to have poured £3,000 into her on date nights, until things were said to have turned sour.

By January 2022, Ansreen was trying to end the relationship but “increasingly obsessive” Saqib would not accept it was over.

As a result, he “took to attempting to blackmail Ansreen” by threatening to send their sex tapes to her husband, the court heard.

And the jury was told how the mother made the “calamitous” decision to put the matters into the hands of her daughter.

On January 4, Mahek sent her mum a message that read: “I’ll get him jumped by guys and he won’t know what day it is.”

The TikTok influencer also messaged him saying: “I am sorry that this year you’ll be gone, Saqib.”

It was then that she and her mum plotted to “silence” Saqib by luring him in and offering to pay him back the money for date nights.

On February 10, he was driven by “completely innocent” friend Hashim to collect the cash from Leicester.

But in the minutes leading up to the crash Saqib made a harrowing 999 call.

He said: “I’m being followed by two vehicles and they’re trying to block me in. I can’t get to a police station – I need help right now.

“There’s guys following me. 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.”

After giving his name to the operator, Saqib then begs: “They’re hitting into the back of the car very fast.

“Please, I’m begging you, I’m going to die.”

He can then be heard screaming before the clip cuts off.

Moments later, the Skoda Fabia the friends were travelling in smashed into a tree on a central reservation and “split in two”.

Footage was recently released by police showing how brazen Bukhari spun a web of lies to officers after the horror.

Ansreen Bukhari and Mahek Bukhari had denied two counts of murder and two alternate counts of manslaughter.

Last month Rekhan Karwan and Raees was jailed for 26 years and 10 months, with 362 days on remand to be deducted.

FNatasha Akhtar, 23, was sentenced to 11 years eight months imprisonment Ameer Jamal, 28, to 14 years eight months imprisonment and Sanaf Gulamustafa, 23, sentenced to 14 years nine months imprisonment over manslaughter.

Mohammed Patel was found not guilty of murder or manslaughter.
