A gangland murderer has had a luxury apartment that was funded by a McMafia millionaire who boasted of his connection with Meghan Markle seized by police.
Mohammed Nisar Khan – known as ‘Meggy’ – is serving a life sentence for hunting down and deliberately running over father-of-three Amriz Iqbal as he crossed a road in 2018.
Mr Iqbal suffered an unsurvivable injury when his head struck a tree after being flung into the air following the smash in Bradford Moor, West Yorkshire.
Khan mowed down Mr Iqbal in a silver Kia Sedona with right-hand man Tony Grant in the passenger seat and up to four other armed men in the back of the vehicle.
Now, officers from the National Crime Agency (NCA) have taken a luxury apartment from him after they claimed was the head of an organised crime group.

The High Court granted an Unexplained Wealth Order to recover the apartment on an exclusive development in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
The NCA claimed Khan was the head of a gang involved in drug supply, firearms offences and violence across West Yorkshire.
It comes after a previous High Court order last February, in which the NCA recovered Khan’s Porsche Cayenne which bore the registration ‘MEG5S’.
Investigators argued that despite the apartment and the car being registered to companies seemingly unconnected to Khan, he used both for a number of years prior to their recovery.
Khan was living at the apartment with his wife and children at the time of his arrest for murder.
It was also argued that despite the measures taken by Khan to hide ownership, they were both obtained through crime.

The funds used to buy apartment were provided by businessman Mansoor Hussain, who was the centre of the UK’s first successful Unexplained Wealth Order case.
Hussain, 40, previously had to hand over 45 properties, including million-pound mansions and apartment blocks in London, Cheshire and Leeds, along with £583,950 in cash and four parcels of land.
Among the properties he was forced to hand over were a £1.75million seven-bedroom property in Leeds which was his main home, and an apartment block in the West Yorkshire city which had a total value of £4.5million.
The businessman, who proudly posed with celebrities including Meghan Markle and Beyonce, also had a flat on a road in Knightsbridge worth £850,000 as well as a tiny £250,000 studio in the area.
An unexplained wealth order is an investigative tool used by the authorities to compel people to explain their finances.

Andy Lewis, head of asset denial in the National Crime Agency, said: ‘The use of civil powers allowed us to recover the assets of convicted murderer Meggy Khan, who we believe was head of an organised crime group responsible for drug crime and violent offences across West Yorkshire.
‘Taking away the proceeds of crime is a vital tactic in the fight against organised crime, as it weakens a criminal’s ability to fund further illegal activity, as well as preventing them from living a luxury lifestyle.’
Sarah Pritchard, NCA Director of the national economic crime centre, said: ‘Recovering illicit wealth is key to disrupting serious and organised criminality and reducing its harmful impact in communities.
‘We are determined to stop criminals profiting from their crime – this case shows that we will use all tools at our disposal to take action to recover illicit wealth.’
Khan took significant steps to hide his ownership of the Porsche by registering it in the name of a company formerly owned by his nephew, investigators said.
He has a long criminal history and has been linked to a number of high profile court cases in the Leeds and Bradford area.
Between 1993 and 2011 he was convicted of offences including robbery, possession of firearms, perverting the course of justice, theft, handling stolen goods, and assault.
Detective Chief Superintendent Pat Twiggs, of West Yorkshire Police, said: ‘Through Programme Precision we are working closely with the National Crime Agency and other partners to tackle the threat of serious and organised crime.
‘This order is a reflection of how, by working in partnership, we can make a significant impact in the communities of West Yorkshire and beyond.
‘Mohammed Nisar ‘Meggy’ Khan was sentenced in 2019 to life imprisonment with a minimum term of 26 years, but that didn’t mean our work against him came to an end.
‘As this order shows we and our partners will stop at nothing to ensure people who are involved in serious criminality in West Yorkshire are held accountable for their actions.’
