Police recover body of Bradford University student in River Mersey

Aamir Qudeer went missing in Liverpool more than six weeks ago.

Police searching for a Bradford University student who went missing in Liverpool more than six weeks ago have recovered a body from the River Mersey.

Aamir Qudeer, 21, a first-year engineering student, was last seen in Bradford on February 26, before travelling by train to Leeds and then vanishing in Liverpool.

His family have made repeated pleas for information on his disappearance, including appeals in Bradford, Leeds and Liverpool city centres.

Investigating officer Detective Inspector Neil Benstead said: “We can confirm that we were alerted by Merseyside Police to the discovery of a man’s body, which was found in the river in South Liverpool on the morning of Sunday, 13 April.

“The body was recovered by emergency services, following a call from a member of the public at about 9am.

“Formal identification has not yet taken place.”

Messages of condolence have been left on social media sites set up to help find Mr Qudeer.

As you’re here…

5Pillars have one humble request from you…

Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.

5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.

This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.

Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).

You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?

If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:“The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Ibn Mājah]
