Nezam Salangy Biography
Who is Nezam Salangy?
Nezam Salangy, 44, is alleged to have killed his wife Zobaidah at a takeaway pizzeria in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, in March 2020.
His younger brothers, Mohammed Yasin Salangi, 33, and Mohammed Ramin Salangy, 31, are accused of helping a criminal.
The men allegedly took the body of Ms. Salangy from the Prego Pizza takeaway and took it to a rural location where they buried it in a shallow grave.
His body was finally found covered in branches and wrapped in a duvet cover and garbage bags on October 16, after police were unaware of the location for six months.
Nezam Salangy, 44, is alleged to have murdered his wife Zobaidah before taking her phone and sending himself messages claiming she “had a boyfriend” and was “leaving the country”.
In court yesterday, prosecutors claimed that Nezam Salangy drove to areas in the West Midlands and Birmingham in the days after his wife disappeared, allegedly in possession of her phone.
The court heard that data showed Nezam Salangy’s car telematics placed him in the same place as his missing wife’s phone, including on Smethwick High Street.
Messages sent to Nezam Salangy’s phone from Ms Salangy’s at the time were read in court, with one saying: ‘Don’t contact me anymore. I have a boyfriend and soon I will leave the unfaithful country. Go away, I have a boyfriend and I don’t need you anymore.
Another claims that she “never liked the UK”.
“When Nezam traveled to Saltley, so did Zobaidah’s phone,” Simon Denison QC, a prosecutor, told the court.
The Worcester Crown Court jury was also shown a series of CCTV footage from the night of March 28-29, 2020, when prosecutors allege that Nezam Salangy and his brother Mohammed Ramin Salangy buried Ms Salangy. .
Images of homes and businesses along the three-mile route between Prego Pizza on Austin Road, Bromsgrove and Copyholt Lane, where Ms Salangy was buried, show a light-colored car leaving shortly after midnight and returning shortly after 3 am.
Mr Denison said:
The indictment says you can be sure, that in those 20 minutes they were at Prego Pizza, they were preparing to move and then moved Zobaidah’s body in the Nissan Micra to be taken away and disposed of in the grave they dug on Copyholt Lane.
“Having returned to Prego Pizza to tie it up and pick her up, they took her out in the car and that recorded activity is when they were burying the body at 4:20am.”
The court has been told that Nezam Salangy’s other brother, Mohammed Yasin Salangi, who is also accused of aiding a criminal, remained in Caerphilly, near Cardiff, on the night of the alleged burial.
The jury was told that during a police interview with Nezam’s brother, Mohammed Ramin Salangy, officers asked him if he had gotten involved in anything out of “family loyalty.”
Denison said: “Mohammed Ramin said that Nezam had told him that Zobaidah was dead. He said that Mohammed Yasin had told him that he had committed suicide.
He said that Nezam took her somewhere. They put her in her car wrapped in bedding so she wouldn’t see her face.
Denison added that the police showed Mohammed Ramin Salangy maps of the area, but he did not know where they had been.
The prosecution said that when Mohammed Yasin Salangi was interviewed, he told police that on March 28 he received a call from his family in Afghanistan to say that his brother and his wife had an argument.
Mr Denison said: ‘Mohammed Yasin said that he would not interfere and that he did not have a good relationship with Nezam.
He said that Nezam called him and told him that the oven was not working and asked him to bring a piece to the shop.
Mohammed Yasin Salangi told police his mother called them later and told them “they couldn’t go in any case because of Covid,” Denison said.
During the interview with the police, Mohammed Yasin Salangi said that a taxi driver had turned up and his brother had gone to Bromsgrove while he was staying in Wales.
The court heard that Mohammed Yasin Salangi told the police that when he spoke to Mohammed Ramin Salangy the next day, his brother said ‘they are stupid people, but absolutely nothing is happening and they are fine’.
Nezam Salangy, of Austin Road, Bromsgrove, denies the murder.
Mohammed Yasin Salangi and Mohammed Ramin Salangy, both from Adamscroft Place, Caerphilly, deny helping a criminal.
