Beauty queen fined after pretending to be sister

Shanna Bukhari, 25, was pulled over while driving her family’s red MG sports car earlier this year. She claimed to be her sister but was rumbled when an eagle-eyed police worker saw her picture in the local newspaper. The paper had reported how model Bukhari wanted to become the first Muslim to represent Britain in the Miss Universe pageant.
Bukhari was brought before the courts and pleaded guilty to wilful police obstruction, driving without insurance and driving without a licence – as she was only permitted to use an automatic car. She was fined £800 and ordered to pay £100 costs at Manchester magistrates’ court. Bukhari, of Deepdale Avenue, Withington, was stopped while driving on February 21. She was then arrested and charged. The court heard how a police marker had been placed on the vehicle due to an unrelated investigation.
The car was seized and Bukhari was given seven days to produce her documents. Instead she repeatedly lied about her identity, claiming to be her sister and giving various versions of her name. It was only when the police community support officer saw her picture in the M.E.N. weeks later that Bukhari was tracked down.
