A man aged 38 has pleaded not guilty to murder and attempted murder following an incident in Sandford Road, Bradford Moor, last week.

Tony Grant, of Queens Road, Bradford, denied the charges during his first appearance at Bradford Crown Court today.

Bearded Grant wore a grey sweatshirt for the 15 minute hearing before the Recorder of Bradford, Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC. David Gordon, for the prosecution, said police enquiries were ongoing in relation to the incident.

“There is a very real potential for other defendants to be brought before the court. This is an active investigation that is ongoing at the moment,” Mr Gordon said.


Grant replied ‘Not guilty’ when charged with the murder of Amriz Iqbal and the attempted murder of Amran Ahmed on October 3.

His trial was set for April 1 and is estimated to take at least two weeks.

Simon Hustler, for the defence, told the court the issue for the jury would be ‘participation.’

Mr Hustler made no bail application and Grant was remanded back into custody.

Mr Iqbal, 40, a father of three of Wetherby, died in hospital following reports that two men had been struck by a vehicle and assaulted at 1.10pm.
