A man who claimed that Mohammed Saleem was murdered by a family member has been jailed for three-and-a-half years for perverting the course of justice.

Police initially focused their investigations on the allegations from Jafran Jamil, 40, who had made a statement following the brutal murder.

He was jailed on September 12 after admitting perverting the course of justice.

More than 1,700 hours of police time was wasted on the accusations.
