London, Oct 16 (ANI): A Pakistani origin pregnant woman was found burnt to death in the garden of her house in Bradford.

According to the Daily Mail, Asiyah Khan had come to Britain earlier this year.

Police investigating the case have said that it was not clear whether she killed herself or was set on fire by someone else.

One of her neighbours said that the family returned home from a shopping trip to find the house locked and added that when Khan's husband Naveed climbed over the gate, he found her dead body in the back garden.

"Nav came round to get me saying 'help me, help me.' I didn't know what to expect when I got round there, I thought she might have fallen over or the baby was coming early. I thought I'd have to be a midwife," the neighbour said.

"When I got into the garden, I just didn't know what to do with him, he was hysterical, the sisters were hysterical and the mother was too. There were no flames, the body was just black and you could see bits of her clothes around," she added.

West Yorkshire Police said they were called by the Fire Service in the evening to report of a 23-year-old woman with serious burns on Cloudsdale Avenue, Bradford.

"The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and inquiries are ongoing," he added. (ANI)
