Labour MP Naz Shah writes a letter to PM Imran Khan

LONDON - Labour Party MP Naz Shah has written a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan.

She has urged him to intervene in the murder case of British-Pakistani Samia Shahid.

Sania was killed by her father and former husband in 2016.

Samia, originally from Bradford, was killed by her family for divorcing her first husband, who was her cousin, to marry Syed Mukhtar Kazim.

Her first husband, Chaudhry Mohammad Shakeel, has been freed on bail due to a lack of progress in the trial and he denies her murder but the Bradford West MP wants Prime Minister Imran Khan to intervene and make sure "that the state is prosecuting and taking real care of what they are doing."

"The fact that he has been released on bail does really raise my concerns. I'm really worried about the state of the case," MP Shah has written to the Pakistan premier, according to a copy of the letter seen by this correspondent.
