RELATIVES of Sabira Alam spoke of their grief as her funeral was held.
The 20-year-old, who was found dead on the moors at Buckstones earlier this month, was buried after a family service at the Jamia Mosque, Huddersfield, yesterday.
Miss Alam’s body was found by a hang-glider a few days after her family had reported her missing.
Sabira, of Vernon Avenue, Greenhead Park, was allegedly attacked and killed before being dumped on the moors.
Her oldest sister Aneesa Alam, 30, said Sabira’s death had devastated the family.
She added Sabira was a happy, typical 20-year-old with whom she had a close relationship.
The sisters worked part-time at their father’s shop, Ripponden News and Post Office.
Miss Alam said: “It has just left such a big void in all of our lives. We are still trying to come terms with what has happened.
“Sabira was really happy and lively all the time. She was just a typical 20-year-old girl and so much fun.
“We were really close. We are both shopaholics and used to work the weekend shift together.
“Now she has gone, the place just feels dead.”
Sabira is a former Salendine Nook High School pupil and attended the White Rose Beauty College in Leeds.
Naveed Naeem, 30, of New Street, Milnsbridge, has been charged with Sabira’s murder and is expected to stand trial in October.
