PC Beshenivsky Family

PC Beshenivsky was with her colleague PC Teresa Milburn when they were called to Universal Travel in Morley Street, Bradford, when she was gunned down. PC Milburn was seriously injured but survived.

The 38-year-old was mother to three children and two stepchildren and wife to her husband Paul.

On the day of her death, the Beshenivsky family were due to hold a birthday party for their youngest daughter Lydia at their home near Haworth, West Yorkshire.

PC Beshenivsky had wrapped the presents and even baked a cake for the occasion.

But as she neared the end of her shift that afternoon, she was called out to a robbery by a seven-strong gang at the travel agency.

She had only been an officer for nine months. The crime shocked the nation and left Mr Beshenivsky and their five children totally devastated.

On the 10th anniversary of her death in 2015, her daughter Lydia pulled at the nation’s heartstrings when she claimed she couldn’t remember her mother.

She said: ‘Nothing, I’ve no memories. I’ve been cheated, haven’t I? Her murderers were heartless.

‘I only know what I’m told about mum. I look at photos of her and think she looks pretty. I would have loved to have known her.’

Her son Paul Junior added: ‘Our mum was very brave.

‘She went into the shop first, she wasn’t scared.

‘Dad says we are like her in that – we have a strong sense of right and wrong.’

Her husband Paul said after the tragedy: ‘It took me two days to tell the kids.

‘I struggled to find the words but I saw them looking down and thought I’d be truthful in as simple a way as possible.

‘I said, ‘Mummy has died and she won’t be coming home.

‘It was the hardest thing I have ever done. Then a friend took them away for a fortnight to escape the publicity.’

The West Yorkshire Police officer was left without a headstone for more than five years after her death, after her widower Paul claimed he was unable to decide on the right words for it.

The family row saw her mother and stepfather, Jenny and Tony Booth, begging her widower to erect their headstone.

But instead a simple wooden cross bearing her name marked her final resting place at Nab Wood Cemetery in Shipley, West Yorkshire for years.

A West Midlands Police headstone was put up in 2006.

‘This is a major development in this long running investigation and their assistance in this matter cannot be understated.

‘We are continuing to liaise with partners in Pakistan to process Khan’s extradition with the intention of returning him to the UK to face court proceedings.’
