A seventh man has been jailed in connection with the murder of Banaz Mahmod, 20, who was strangled in January 2006 and her body stored in a suitcase before being driven out of London towards Birmingham, where she was intended to be hidden in a shallow grave. Dana Amin, 33, was convicted at Southwark crown court of perverting the course of justice and preventing the victim's lawful and decent burial, and was jailed for eight years.
