Lady Who Used Snapchat To Incite Fatal Fight Between Boyfriends, Jailed.


A woman who filmed her ex-boyfriend dying and then boastfully posted the video on social media has been sentenced to 14 years for manslaughter.

21-year-old Fatima Khan was sentenced at the Old Bailey where she was previously found guilty of orchestrating the killing of 18-year-old Khalid Safi.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Cranwell, from the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: “Fatima used social media to bring about a confrontation between two young men vying for her affection. She lured Khalid to a spot pre-arranged with the suspect who was named in court as Raza Khan.

“She posted a series of antagonising posts which she knew full well could, at the very least, result in serious harm coming to Khalid.

“When Khalid lay dying after being stabbed, her first thought was to capture the moment for social media – a truly perverse and callous course of action. Khalid was only 18 years old when he was killed and he had his whole life ahead of him.

“A petty argument over rival affections has escalated with a tragic outcome. I hope today’s conviction gives Khalid’s family some measure of comfort and closure.

“I would also like to praise DS Franco Massimo, DC Nick Neale and DC David Field were all commended by Judge Michael Popolski for unravelling this challenging and complex case.

“Raza Khan is wanted for Khalid’s murder. Our efforts to bring him in for questioning continue. If you know where Khan is, I’d urge you to do the right thing and contact the police on 020 8721 4054 or Crimestoppers anonymously via 0800 555 111. Perhaps you have not come forward with information in the past due a number of reasons, none of that matters. All that matters is that all those responsible for taking a young man’s life are brought to justice.”

Khalid was found suffering stab injuries after an altercation in Victoria Road, W3 at around 18:30hrs on Thursday, 1 December 2016.

He was taken by the London Ambulance Service to a west London hospital where he died a short time later.

A post-mortem examination on Friday, 2 December 2016 at Uxbridge Mortuary gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the heart.

Khalid Safi

The court heard that Khan had been in an on and off relationship with Khalid for about two years. However, there was a second man, Suspect One who was identified in court as Raza Khan. He sought to be Khan’s boyfriend. Because of this, Khalid and Raza Khan disliked each other and had fought in the past over Fatimah.

On the evening of Thursday, 1 December, Khalid turned up at Fatimah’s work place unexpectedly and an argument broke-out between them.

Fatimah filmed parts of the argument and posted it on Snapchat, claiming that Khalid assaulted her and threatened her with a gun. Fatimah and Khalid then made their way on foot to the plaza area of Victoria Road where they continued arguing.

At some point during the argument, Khan directly alerted Raza Khan via a group Snapchat post that she was having an argument with Khalid and he would not leave her alone.

Raza Khan responded to this post. He allegedly armed himself with a knife and took a taxi to the North Acton area where he knew he would find them both.


Raza Khan

Upon arriving, Raza Khan went and spoke to Fatimah before heading over to Khalid. There was a confrontation between the two men which led to Khalid being fatally stabbed.

Raza Khan fled the scene. A discarded knife and jacket was later found nearby. He received minor injuries in the altercation and self-presented at a north London hospital, telling staff the injuries were caused from him losing his balance. He was triaged but left the hospital before being treated. He did not return home and he discarded his mobile phone.
