has con­fessed to hat­ing her for scup­per­ing her chances of love.

Kun­tal Pa­tel al­legedly gave the toxin Abrin to “ma­nip­u­la­tive, con­trol­ling and self­ish” Meena Pa­tel after she “for­bade” her from mar­ry­ing her fi­ancé, Ni­raj Kakad.

Graphic de­signer Pa­tel, 37, is said to have bought the poi­son from an Amer­i­can site. South­wark Crown Court heard Meena drank it but sur­vived.

In cross-ex­am­i­na­tion she agreed her mother was “...a road­block to ru­in­ing what seemed to you at the time your one shot chance of get­ting mar­ried, hav­ing a fam­ily.”

Kun­tal, from Strat­ford, east London, ad­mits at­tempt­ing to ac­quire a toxin, but de­nies at­tempted mur­der.

The trial con­tin­ues.
