A Bradford man has been charged with the murder of his wife while on a trip to Pakistani-administered Kashmir.

Mother-of-four Sarah Rani, 31, from Oldham, Greater Manchester, died on 29 August on the trip to Mirpur with husband Rashid Ashraf.

Mangla Cantt Police said Mr Ashraf claimed she was killed in a car accident but after her family raised concerns, her body was exhumed.

Mr Ashraf is due to appear at Jhelum Court, Punjab on 9 October.

The findings of the post-mortem examination on Mrs Rani, who was living in Bradford at the time of her death, are yet to be released.

Her family in Oldham told BBC Asian Network they were caring for her four children, including a four-month-old baby she had with Mr Ashraf.
