In July, a 29-year-old woman’s estranged husband went from Georgia to her Chicago apartment building to murder her and himself in a murder-suicide after she wrote about their broken marriage on social media.
In a wrongful death complaint filed earlier this week, Shazia Khan, the mother of murdered TikTok star Sania Khan, accuses her daughter’s building of assisting in the murder-suicide.
“Sania Khan’s story is heartbreaking and should never have happened. For more than [seven] months, the defendants were aware that Sania’s estranged spouse represented a major threat to her life “In a statement, Chicago attorney Mike Gallagher, who is handling the case, told themedia. “Despite this information, the defendants let him go right past security before bringing him inside the protected area of the facility, without even demanding to see his identification.”
Gallagher stated that if building management workers had followed their own protocols, they would have discovered that Sania’s estranged husband, Raheel Ahmad, “was on a ‘no-entry’ list for the building.” They would also have stopped him from entering and walking through the premises without his ID, he claimed.
According to a Chicago Police Department (CPD) incident report, officers arrived to the 200 block of East Ohio Street in Chicago on July 18 at 4:30 p.m., where they discovered Ahmad, 36, and Sania, his estranged Pakistani-American wife, both deceased with gunshot wounds to the head.
