Four men released without charge in Rehan Shafiq death case


Four men arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving in connection with the fatal collision that killed Rehan Shafiq have been released without charge.

The men, two aged 22 and the others aged 24 and 30, will no longer be required to answer bail on September 26.

Nineteen-year-old Rehan Shafiq died on Monday, August 13, after the Seat Ibiza he was travelling in collided with a lamppost in Buckingham Road at about 11.20pm. Officers investigating the incident have ruled out a connection with a second collision, which happened a short distance along the same road about 20 minutes later, in which no-one was injured.

Sergeant Jack Hawkins, of the Roads Policing Department based at Bicester, is continuing to appeal for witnesses to the fatal collision. He said: “We are particularly keen to hear from anyone with information about a small dark car, which we believe was travelling out of Bletchley towards Buckingham before the fatal collision, but turned around at the scene and drove away back towards Bletchley without its lights on.”

Witnesses can call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
