Saima Ahmed's brother criticises Met's handling of case

The brother of Saima Ahmed, whose body was found in Edinburgh in January, said his family is "angry and upset" at the way the Met Police handled the investigation into her disappearance five months earlier and refused to meet them.

Sadat Ahmed told BBC London's Helen Mulroy his family had to ask to view CCTV footage themselves after police did not act on their requests.

Ms Ahmed, a 36-year-old divorced librarian, was last seen alive at Wembley Central station.

The Metropolitan Police's handling of the case has been referred to the police watchdog, the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

A Met spokesman said the force could not comment on an ongoing independent investigation.

"You have faith in the police that they will do everything they can but they didn't," Mr Ahmed told the BBC.
