A MOTHER ac­cused of mur­der­ing her tod­dler daugh­ter told a po­lice of­fi­cer the child had choked on a piece of bread, a court heard yes­ter­day.

It is al­leged Sa­dia Ahmed, 27, killed 14-month-old Inaya on April 17 last year in Drum­chapel, Glas­gow.

Con­sta­ble Ryan Bird told the High Court in Glas­gow that as he ar­rived at the house, paramedics raced out car­ry­ing Inaya.

Bird said he spoke to Ahmed in the kitchen.

He added: “She said along the lines of the baby has an eat­ing dis­or­der and she was try­ing to feed the baby.

“They usu­ally feed her with sy­ringes. How­ever, that day she tried to feed the baby bread but it wasn’t eaten, so she stuffed the bread down the baby’s throat.”

Ahmed de­nies all the charges and the trial con­tin­ues.
