A man has been charged with murder following the death of Muhammed Mujahid Hussain in Bradford.
Hashim Sajjad, 19, of Wheatlands Crescent, Bradford, has been charged with murder and remanded in custody to appear at Bradford Magistrates Court today.
He has also been charged with attempt section 18 wounding with intent, alongside three other males who were arrested as part of the investigation into Mr Hussain’s death. This relates to an unconnected incident on 8 April on Lower Westfield Road where a 17-year-old male was left with serious injuries.
The other three males charged with attempt section 18 wounding with intent are a 16-year-old and two 17-year-olds who cannot be named for legal reasons. These three males have also been remanded in custody to appear at Bradford Magistrates Court tomorrow.
A further three males, aged 18, 20 and 20, have been arrested overnight on Monday 26 April and yesterday morning. They remain in custody.
Detective Superintendent Mark Swift, of the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said: “We know that Mohammed Mujahid Hussain’s death has caused shockwaves in the local community, particularly given that it has happened during Ramadan.
“A man has now been charged with his murder and a number of others remain in custody as we continue to investigate the circumstances that have led to this young man losing his life.
“There will continue to be a high visibility police presence in the area in the coming days and we will also continue to work with the local community to provide updates and reassurance.”
