Tributes paid to 'body in the bank' man

Tributes paid to 'body in the bank' man

THE twin of a man whose body was found inside a former bank building in Batley has paid tribute to his “amazing brother”. 

Asghar Badshah, who was 39 and from Bradford, was discovered at the disused Yorkshire Bank premises on Commercial Street last Sunday. He had been missing since December 4. 

Two men, aged 27 and 30, and a 41-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder. 

Both men have since been released under investigation and the woman is on bail pending further enquiries. 

Mr Badshah’s identical twin brother, Akbar, admitted it was hard to put into words how the loss had affected him and his family. 

He said: “He was such a lovely human being. If anybody had any sort of problem, he would help them. 

“I must have had more than 100 people visit me already, and there’s going to be more coming to pay their respects. 

“He was always humorous, always jovial, always happy and cheerful. There was always a smile on his face and he was just an amazing brother to have.” 

Mr Badshah said he still gets stopped by people in the street mistaking him for his brother, who was also known as ‘Oscar’ in his local community. 

“My brother was so popular, he was always well-known and well liked,” he added.

A murder probe into the death of Asghar Badshah remains ongoing.
