Two women have appeared in court accused of murdering two men whose bodies were found by the side of a country lane.

Shahbzada Muhammed Imran, 27, of Bradford, and Ahmedin Sayed Khyel, 35, of London, were found dead on New Lane, Tong, in Bradford, last Tuesday night.

Both had suffered serious head injuries.

Arab Sultana, 63, and Kainet Bibi, 27, both of Heath Terrace, Bradford, appeared at Bradford Magistrates' Court accused of the men's murder.

The women - who are mother-in-law and daughter-in-law - are also charged with destroying or concealing forensic evidence.

Both were remanded in custody and will appear before Bradford Crown Court on Tuesday.

After the hearing, West Yorkshire Police named a man they want to talk to in connection with the murders.

Detective Superintendent Dick Nuttall said: "As part of our investigations, we want to speak to 31-year-old Mohammed Zubair.

"Our inquiries suggest Zubair left the country on Wednesday May 11.

"I would like to appeal to anyone with information on his whereabouts or recent movements to contact the incident room as a matter of urgency on 01924 334693."
