Woman charged with ‘faith healers’ murder


Rubina Maroof, 29, arrested and charged as she returned to UK from Pakistan

A WOMAN has been charged with the murder of a spiritual healer whose mutilated body was found in a Luton park four years ago.

Alfusaine Jabbi was found dead in Leagrave Park, Luton on April 29 2006.

Bedfordshire Police said Rubina Maroof, 29, of no fixed abode, was arrested and charged with murder after she arrived at Heathrow Airport from Pakistan yesterday.

She will appear at Luton Magistrates Court tomorrow.

In 2008 Tariq Malik and Imran Khan were jailed for life for Mr Jabbi’s murder.

Tariq Malik’s half-brother Khalid Malik and wife Guhar Mirza were jailed for perverting the course of justice, while Rubina Shah, 38, was found not guilty of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm but was found guilty of conspiracy to imprison.

Bedfordshire Police said the case was still open and believed people were still withholding information about Mr Jabbi’s murder from police.

Detective Chief Inspector Steve Collin, the original senior investigating officer, said: “While five people have already been convicted in connection with this murder the case has remained open.

“There are still people out there who have information about Mr Jabbi’s death, and we continue to urge them to come forward and speak to us in confidence.”

Anyone with information should contact Bedfordshire Police, in confidence, on 01234 841212 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
