Cabbie accused of double murder tells jury he came downstairs to find two 'lifeless' bodies on settee

A BRADFORD taxi driver on trial accused of double murder came downstairs to find two "lifeless bodies" on the settee in his front room, a jury was told yesterday.
Mohammed Zubair, 36, said he had seen his friend Sabir Hussain attacking Amhedin Khyel with an "object" as he ushered his hysterical mother upstairs just minutes before.
Bradford Crown Court has heard that Zubair's house in Heath Terrace, Barkerend, Bradford, had blood stains on the living room walls, ceiling, and carpet following the attack on May 10, 2011.


He denies the murder of Mr Kyhel, a 35-year-old London electrician who was having an affair with his wife, Kainaat Bibi, and his labourer friend, 27 year-old Imran Khan.
Zubair is accused of a "ferocious" and "brutal" attack on both men, with Mr Khyel suffering at least six blows to the head.
Giving evidence to the jury yesterday, Zubair said that on the day of the incident, he had finished work and gone for a walk and a smoke in Seymour Park with his colleague and friend Mr Hussain, who he described as being "like an older brother to me."
Asked whether he had confided in him over his wife's affair, he said yes, adding: "He felt sorry for me, he said everything would be fine."
Asked if there had been discussions about Mr Hussain intervening in the matter, Zubair said yes, as his friend spoke the same language as Mr Khyel and he had offered to contact him to say "back off and leave the family alone."
His barrister, Peter Doyle QC, told the court that on the afternoon of the alleged attack, Mr Hussain had contacted Mr Khyel's mobile phone.
Asked whether he had been aware of that conversation, Zubair said: "No, not at all."
