Court is told of law man’s ‘murder text’

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AN im­mi­gra­tion lawyer beat up his wife and then sent a text to her sis­ter telling her to re­move her “dead body from my flat,” a court heard.

He then sent a fur­ther text, stat­ing: “Get her out of my flat now be­fore I kick the crap out of her” fol­lowed by an­other that read his wife was half dead and he was leav­ing.

Lawyer Mo­hammed Rah­man, 32, who worked at the Tower Ham­let Law Cen­tre, is ac­cused of mur­der­ing his wife Jas­min Chowd­hury, also 32, af­ter years of vi­o­lence and his in­fi­delity.

The Old Bai­ley heard con­cerned fam­ily mem­bers and po­lice went to the flat in Cas­silis Road on the Isle of Dogs in Lon­don’s East End af­ter re­ceiv­ing the texts on De­cem­ber 17 last year.

Pros­e­cu­tor Gareth Pat­ter­son said the door of the flat was forced open and added: “Jas­min was in­deed found inside in what can only be de­scribed as a half-dead state.”

Rah­man de­nies mur­der­ing Jas­min, who died later from her in­juries in hospi­tal.

The trial con­tin­ues.
