British-Pakistani TikTok star Mahek Bukhari and her mother have both been accused of murdering two men after they allegedly ran the victims off the road during a high-speed chase in Leicester, UK.
The 22-year-old social media star stands accused of killing Mohammed Hashim Ijazuddin, 21, and his cousin Saqib Hussain, 21, after allegedly chasing down the pair with her mother, Ansreen Bukhari, 45, and her pal, Natasha Akhtar, 21.
On February 11, Hashim and Saqib were reportedly driving home along the A46 when the three women, along with two male accomplices in another car, began following them, allegedly attempting to ram them off the road. One of the victims reportedly managed to call police during the chase, but the dispatcher heard a ‘loud scream’ and the call was disconnected. Eventually, the two men hit a centre reservation and their silver Skoda Fabia ‘broke in two’, killing both men on impact.
The other two cars involved in the case were a silver Audi TT and a blue Seat Leon, one of which was presumably driven by the fashion influencer. In one post on TikTok, Mahek had bragged about owning her ‘#dreamcar’, an Audi.
Known for her at-home fashion shoots, Mahek Bukhari had amassed 128,000 followers on TikTok and 44,000 followers on Instagram under the handle ‘MaybVolgs.’ Last year, the influencer posted a video with her mother.
Bukhari, her mother and her friend appeared in court on February 16 and have been remanded in custody until their plea hearing on March 18. No application for bail has been made.
