A MAN suspected of killing a woman in broad daylight in Bradford city centre last Saturday (6) has been arrested.

Habibur Masum, 25, was detained early on Tuesday (9) in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.

The police launched a nationwide manhunt for Masum, after 27-year-old Kulsuma Akter was stabbed while she was pushing her five-month-old son in a pram in the Westgate area of Bradford city centre. Her baby was unharmed.

The police had earlier arrested a 23-year-old man in Cheshire on suspicion of assisting the offender. They had conducted raids across Burnley, Oldham, and Chester.

West Yorkshire Police and Greater Manchester Police have both referred themselves to the Independent Office for Police Conduct as both had had prior contact with the pair.
