A woman from Ilford, who filmed her ex-boyfriend dying in a pool of blood and then boastfully posted the video on snapchat, has been jailed for his manslaughter.
Fatima Khan, 21, of Jersey Road, was sentenced today, having previously been found guilty of orchestrating the killing of Khalid Safi.
Detective Chief Inspector Mark Cranwell, from the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: “When Khalid lay dying after being stabbed, her first thought was to capture the moment for social media – a truly perverse and callous course of action.
“Khalid was only 18 years old when he was killed and he had his whole life ahead of him.”
The pair had been in an on-off relationship, a jury at the Old Bailey was told, and Ms Khan was also involved with another man, Raza Khan, who had previously clashed with Khalid.
On Thursday, 1 December 2016, the Fatema Khan and Khalid of them had an argument in Victoria Road, White City.
She filmed parts of the confrontation and posted it on Snapchat, claiming that Khalid assaulted her and threatened her with a gun.
She alerted Raza Khan, who allegedly took a taxi to their location and spoke to Fatima in a coffee shop.
Raza then went outside and confronted Khalid, who was fatally stabbed in the heart during their altercation.
Fatima Khan then went outside to take photos of Khalid as he lay there dying. She was challenged by witnesses regarding her actions but replied chillingly “it’s for my sister” before she calmly walked away from the scene.
Raza fled and police have since been unable to trace him.
DCI Cranwell said: “Raza Khan is wanted for Khalid’s murder. Our efforts to bring him in for questioning continue.
“If you know where Khan is, I’d urge you to do the right thing and contact the police on 020 8721 4054 or Crimestoppers anonymously via 0800 555 111.
“Perhaps you have not come forward with information in the past due a number of reasons, none of that matters. All that matters is that all those responsible for taking a young man’s life are brought to justice.”Tags: Ilford
