London, Dec.12 (ANI): Detectives investigating the murder of 54-year-old Asian radio presenter Nasim Jamil at her home, have called on the public to provide them with information that might help them to establish a motive for the killing.

Jamil was known as "Aunty" because of her show on a Glasgow radio station in which she offered advice to troubled listeners and helped to bring divided families together.

According to The Independent, she died from multiple head injuries after the attack at her third-floor flat in Byres Road in the city's busy West End area on Wednesday. Her body was found by her daughter with whom she lived and who also worked at the station, Awaz FM, which broadcasts to Glasgow's large Punjabi-and Urdu-speaking communities.

Tributes were paid yesterday to the widow who was described as "bubbly and jolly" and a "fantastic person".

Police were studying CCTV footage taken around the multicultural area in the hours leading up to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, when she was discovered. Forensic experts examined the scene while officers carried out door-to-door inquiries.

Jamil was last seen alive at around 1.30 p.m. when she had attended a doctor's appointment.

The officer in charge of the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Louise Raphael, said a motive was still unclear and police could not say yet whether the attack was linked to the show. She urged anyone with information to come forward. (ANI)
