107.8 Radio Jackie - Bulletins aired each hour



Thursday, 6 February 2020

A man who murdered his wife and two children in 2006, then fled to Bangladesh, has been jailed.




They had an arranged marriage in 1999, and Juli Bagum sponsored his immigration visa so they could return to the UK.

After years without any trace of him, he was arrested by police in India in 2013 for being in the country illegally.

Mohammed Abdul Shakur, now 46, was held at Heathrow police station when he was finally extradited back to the UK.

Juli’s family says his “we miss them every day and we cannot forgive this senseless loss of life”.

Detective Sergeant Amjad Sharif from Specialist Crime, said: “Shakur’s sentencing brings to a close what has been a protracted and traumatic time for Juli’s family.

“We will likely never be able to understand what could have driven Shakur to snap and end the lives of his wife and two daughters so violently and callously.

“In the years since, Juli, Anika and Thanha’s family have had to endure the most unimaginable torment. At times it must have seemed that there would never be justice; from Shakur immediately fleeing the UK, to the protracted process that followed over many years when he was finally apprehended.

“I am happy now to say that we have finally achieved justice for Juli and her daughters, and her family. I would like to thank them for their unwavering support throughout. Though many years have passed, I know their grieving continues, and I hope this development will allow them some small measure of comfort.

“I would also like to thank our international policing counterparts in Bangladesh and India, and especially the Foreign and Commonwealth representative who assisted us so well in circulating Shakur as a wanted man to local police, and indeed informing us when he was located. This is a prime example of the good that can come from international law enforcement working together to catch criminals.

“Now at last Shakur will serve a substantial custodial sentence for the horrific crimes he committed.”
