Asian Radio Show Host Murdered in GlasgowA well known radio presenter has been killed in her home in Glasgow Nasim Jamil aged 54 was found dead by her daughter in their flat at 7.50pm Wednesday evening. She was last spotted in the morning on her way to work.

The news came as an alarming blow to her family and her daughter who works at the radio station with her. Nasim is a widow as has a good place in the community, people recognise and respected her show and her listeners call her auntie because she gave advice like an agony aunt.


Detective Chief Inspector Louise Raphael, heading the investigation, appealed to the public for information. "This was a particularly brutal murder and the person or persons responsible must be caught," she said.

"Nasim was a widow and lived with her daughter. She was a popular member of the community and well known to her neighbours.
"Forensic officers have completed their examination of the scene and door-to-door inquiries are being carried out in the area. I would seek the public's co-operation in this regard.
"We will also be studying CCTV in the Byres Road area to identify pedestrians and motorists who were in the area on Wednesday."
A statement on Awaz FM's website mourned the loss of "a friend and mother to us all".

Ms Jamil joined Awaz FM in 2004, two years after it was launched. She was known as Aunty because her programme, Yadoon Ka Phool, dealt with personal issues and problems. On her presenter profile, she said that it had been her ambition when launching her show to reunite broken families. "I set this as my main goal of my programme and managed to fulfil my dream," she wrote. "I reunited five people and this made me very happy." She also described herself as an emotional person who loved helping people.

The presenter's body was found in her third-floor flat at around 7.50pm on December 9. She was last seen alive that morning.

Javaid Ullah, station director of Awaz FM, said that as well as losing one of the station's best presenters the Asian community in Glasgow had also lost a dear friend.

"It is a terrible shock," he said. "She was such a jolly, lovely person. It's like losing a family member.
"She did her show on Monday and was laughing and joking. We called her Aunty because she was here from the start."

Mr Ullah said that she was a warm, caring woman who gave much of her own time to help others. He said: "She presented an agony aunt show where people in the community would call up and tell her their problems. She was always the first person to get involved in charity work."

Charanjit Sangha, community relations manager at the station, said he did not think that Mrs Jamil's death was connected to her radio work.

Mrs Jamil, a widow, worked for Awaz FM, which serves the Asian population in Glasgow, broadcasting in Urdu, Punjabi and English. Her daughter, who also works at the station, was said to be in a state of shock. A murder investigation is underway.
