“Did anyone notice someone running from the area or someone behaving in a suspicious manner? It may well be that the person responsible will have bloodstained clothing. It is important that we speak to any person who could provide that little bit of information that could prove vital to our investigation.”

A mobile police office has been placed on Byres Road and officers are continuing to carry out enquiries in the area.

Mrs Jamil joined Awaz FM in 2004 and fronted the ‘Yadoon Ka Phool’ lifestyle programme.
