Leicester Crown Court was told Hussain made a harrowing 911 call in the minutes leading up to the fireball crash.
He said: “I’m being followed by two vehicles and they’re trying to block me in. I can’t get to a police station – I need help right now.
“There’s guys following me. They’ve got balaclavas on.
“They’re trying to ram me off the road. They’re trying to kill me – I’m going to die.”
After giving his name to the operator, Hussain then begs: “They’re hitting into the back of the car very fast.
“Please, I’m begging you, I’m going to die.”
He can then be heard screaming before the clip, which was played to jurors today, cuts off.
Instead, the case is a “story of love, obsession, extortion and, ultimately, cold-blooded murder”, it was said.

Jurors were told Hussain had been in a relationship with married Ansreen Bukhari for about three years and “appeared to be in love” with her.
During the illicit tryst, he splurged $3,750 [£3,000] on Ansreen, who he called “Anzy”, on date nights.
By January 2022, she was trying to end the relationship but “increasingly obsessive” Hussain would not accept it was over.
“He, unfortunately it appears, could not accept that decision.”
Prosecutor Collingwood Thompson said the spurned man sent his former lover a large number of messages showing him “becoming increasingly obsessive about the relationship, professing his love for Ansreen and begging her to continue the relationship.”
The influencer Mahek Bukhari, seen in a TikTok with Ansreen, [top], was aware of the affair her mother was having with her toyboy
“This alternated with messages showing anger and frustration she would not return his calls,” said Thompson.
As a result, he “took to attempting to blackmail Ansreen” by threatening to send their sex tapes to her husband, jurors were told.
Thompson added, “This, we say, provides the motive for what happened.
On January 4, Mahek Bukhari sent her mum a message which read: “I’ll get him jumped by guys and he won’t know what day it is.”
The TikTok influencer also messaged her mum’s estranged lover, telling him: “I am sorry that this year you’ll be gone, Saqib.”
She and her mum allegedly hatched a plot to “silence” Hussain with her mum by luring him in with the offer of getting his $3,750 back.
Bukhari who is facing two counts of homicide has pled not guilty
On February 10, he was driven by “completely innocent” friend Hashim to collect the cash from Leicester.
Shortly after, both were killed in the early-hours’ horror crash.
The prosecutor said: “The revelation of that affair could have ruined Ansreen’s marriage, damaged her reputation and could also have impacted on Mahek’s relationship with her father.
“Further, Mahek Bukhari was an influencer on social media and the revelation of that affair might even have caused damage to her standing as an influencer.
“These were the motives for the killing of Saqib Hussein and Hashim Ijazuddin.”
Natasha Akhtar, 23, Ansreen Bukhari, 47, Mahek Bukhari, 23, and Rees Jamal, 22, deny two counts of murder and two alternate counts of manslaughter. Other co-conspirators facing the same charges are
Rekan Karwan, 28, Mohammed Patel, 20, Sanaf Gulammustafa, 22, and Ammeer Jamal, 27, deny the same charges.
