My grandfather’s killers crushed wedding dream

A bride-to-be whose grandfather died after a burglary at his home wept today as she said: “It was his dream to lead me down the aisle.”

Victim Mashboor Hussain, 73, died protecting his wife and daughter from masked gunmen who had burst in.

He was shoved to the ground as the raiders held his wife Najida, 70, and daughter at gunpoint and stole cash and other valuables.

The father of five, who ran a butcher’s shop in Elephant and Castle, had a heart attack just after the men fled from his Tooting home and was pronounced dead an hour later. As murder police issued a fresh appeal for witnesses on the first anniversary of his death on February 11 last year, his granddaughter Madiha Seedat told of the “devastating” impact of his loss on her family.

At her engagement party, only weeks before his death, he had promised to walk her down the aisle at her wedding this July. The teaching assistant, 24, said: “We will never get over losing him. My dad wasn’t around when I was young so he was my father figure. He was a big part of my life.

“He was so happy when I got engaged. I always had the dream of him walking me down the aisle at my wedding and now that won’t happen. Our family will never be the same. He was a lovely, caring man and held our family together. We miss him so much.” Mr Hussain’s daughter Tahira Rizwana, 44, said: “I’m really proud of my dad, he died protecting his family.

“The men who broke into the house killed him. They shouldn’t be allowed to walk free. While they are out there this could happen to another family.”

The raiders are described as black, one of them slim and wearing black gloves. DCI Graeme Gwyn, of the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: “I believe there are still people yet to come forward.”
