The twenty-year-old woman who filmed the last moments of her former boyfriend after he was stabbed outside the Costa Coffee in North Acton has been found guilty of manslaughter at the Old Bailey.

The jury decided that Fatima Khan had conspired with another boyfriend to kill 18-year-old Khalid Safi simply because he had turned up at her home in Ilford with presents for her.

She asked Khalid to meet her by the coffee shop near the Holiday Inn on Victoria Road at around 6.30pm on 1 December 2016. She worked at Vigilant Security who are based nearby. She then delayed him to give her other boyfriend Raza Khan, aged 19, time to arrive in a cab. When he got out he was seen on CCTV to be holding a large knife He then stabbed Khalid multiple times in the chest. The two teenagers were rivals for Ms Khan’s affections and had previously come to blows over her.

The court heard that she made a video the dying moments of the Afghan asylum seeker and posted it on Snapchat. She used the caption, "This is what happens when you f--- with me" with the video. She did not go to Khaild's aid and posted further Snapchat videos later that day.

Although Raza Khan was injured he left the scene and has eluded capture. Detectives believe he is likely to still be in the UK. He is known to have links to some London areas, including Acton, Wembley, Ilford, Friern Barnet and Tottenham and also to Dover, in Kent.

Fatima Khan had denied the various charges against her which included murder and conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm. She blamed Raza Khan and said that she was post-traumatic stress disorder due to a previous relationship which caused her to have flashbacks.
