A man who stabbed his friend to death in the mistaken belief he was having an affair with his wife has been jailed.

Aqib Pervaiz, 27, killed Nadeem Uddin Hameed Mohammed, 24, in an underground Tesco car park minutes after purchasing a large kitchen knife from the store. 

Pervaiz, who admitted murder, was convinced his Poundland colleague had been seeing Saima Munir despite attempts to convince him otherwise.

At Reading Crown Court, he was ordered to serve a minimum of 22 years.

Mr Mohammed's wife, who was eight months pregnant at the time of the murder, has returned to India with the daughter he never got to meet, the court was told.

In a statement, his family said: "It is impossible to explain how deep and profound his loss is to the whole family."

Pervaiz, of Rochford Gardens, Slough, was also sentenced to 18 months in prison for possession of a bladed article, to run concurrently.
