THREE PEOPLE GUILTY OF THE MURDER OF HAIDER HAYAT – CASTLEMILK, GLASGOW
Following the convictions of Muhammed Rauf (42), Shahida Abid (33) and Saima Hayat (33) at Glasgow High Court today, Thursday 14 February 2019, for the brutal murder of 49-year-old Haider Hayat within a flat in Raithburn Road in Castlemilk on 3 April 2018, Detective Inspector Steven Watson said:
“Haider was viciously attacked and suffered a sickening and violent death at the hands of Rauf, Abid and Hayat. This is something he did not deserve.
“This was a brutal and senseless murder and such crimes are unacceptable in our society. The actions of those now convicted were compounded by the fact that there were children present in the house at the time of this despicable act.
“I welcome the verdict today which may go some way to giving comfort to Haider’s family and my thoughts have remained with them throughout this incredibly difficult time.
“I am grateful for the commitment of the Police Scotland team who worked on this harrowing inquiry and would like to publicly thank the community who came forward with the vital information which helped bring those convicted today to justice.”
