Sajid Pervez Wife
An abusive husband murdered his wife in a vicious hammer attack after she hid a lifetime of domestic abuse.
Sajid smashed Abida Karim over the head and in the face with a hammer at least 15 times’ while their children slept at the family home in Harehills home, Leeds.
Vile and controlling Pervez then “sawed” at her neck with a kitchen knife he had bought days earlier.
The shocking attack last September followed a long history of domestic violence in the house and Pervez, who has since been diagnosed with dissocial personality order, had taken half a gram of cocaine beforehand.
Mr. Moulson said Pervez used a hammer to hit Mrs. Karim over the head and in the face ‘at least 15 times’ before ‘sawing’ her neck with a kitchen knife.
He said Pervez left the house immediately after and tried to visit his mother but was turned away as she was sleeping.
At 5.29 am, he rang 999 and ‘calmly’ asked an operator if Elland Road police station was open.
He was asked why and replied that he had just killed his wife and was on his way to the station as he did not want the children to find her body.
He claimed they had been arguing and she had sworn at him. He claimed it had been going on for the last 21 years and no one listened to him.
Pervez told the operator that he had left the murder weapons besides her.
Emergency services were immediately dispatched and the hammer and a large kitchen knife were found on the pillow above her head.
There was no sign of life in Mrs. Karim and she was pronounced dead at 5.38 am.
Pervez arrived at the police station and was arrested.
Jailed For Life
He was jailed for life with a minimum term of 22-and-a-half years today after pleading guilty to murder last month.
He and Mrs. Karim, 39, had an arranged marriage as teenagers and had been married for 21 years before the murder.
The court was told there was a history of domestic violence calls, mostly made by the victim, but none of them had resulted in prosecution.
Pervez had been cautioned by police for an offense of battery in 2010.
Prosecutor Peter Moulson QC said there was evidence of Pervez’s ‘controlling and coercive behavior’ towards his wife and he used cannabis and cocaine frequently.
The victim had been in Pakistan for her father’s funeral before returning on Tuesday, September 15 last year. The court was told she had been discussing divorce with family during the trip, which Pervez was aware of.
