A 34-year-old Pakistani Muslim illegal alien asylum seeker allegedly murdered his two-year-old daughter by slashing her throat, a German court heard today. Sohail A. (right) was described in Hamburg Court as a violent tyrant who terrorised his 32-year-old wife and their two children before allegedly murdering daughter Ayesha (below) in the most barbaric way possible.
Daily Mail Sohail attacked his daughter in the family’s flat in Hamburg after his wife Lubna had left to report a domestic violence attack to the police. She returned to the flat accompanied by several police officers to find her daughter murdered with a bloody knife beside her, and no sign of Sohail.
The court heard that the attack with a kitchen knife was so violent the toddler was ‘practically beheaded.’
The horrific murder occurred when Sohail’s wife, Lubna, left him alone with their daughter in order to report her husband’s abuse for the third time. When she left for a police station in Hamburg, Sohail seized the opportunity to slaughter the toddler before fleeing. However, it was his shocking excuse that has enraged citizens demanding answers from immigration authorities.
German online newspaper Bild reports that after being captured in Spain, Sohail confessed to officers that he had murdered the child because officials had rejected his application for asylum. Despite being allowed to remain unhindered in Germany for 6 years as a failed refugee, Sohail believed that his battered wife’s third domestic violence report would be the final straw to ensure his deportation.
Sohail reportedly arrived illegally in Germany from Pakistan on December 21, 2011, and immediately applied for asylum, according to the Daily Mail. Only a month later, his application was denied on the grounds that his information was “not believable.”
Despite being in the country illegally, and the family being on the authorities’ radar due to his domestic abuse, he had not been deported.
