The Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

A PO­LICE of­fi­cer told a mur­der trial the mother of a baby girl claimed her daugh­ter choked on a piece of bread.

Con­sta­ble Ryan Bird was giv­ing ev­i­dence at the trial of Sa­dia Ahmed, 27, from Glas­gow, who de­nies mur­der­ing 14-mon­thold Inaya Ahmed at home in Drum­chapel, Glas­gow, in April last year. Mr Bird told the High Court in Glas­gow that as he ar­rived paramedics came run­ning out car­ry­ing Inaya.

Pros­e­cu­tor Paul Kear­ney asked Mr Bird: “You could hear shout­ing and scream­ing com­ing from the house, is that cor­rect,” and he replied: “Yes. Some of it was in English, but a lot was I think in Urdu.”

Mrs Ahmed de­nies all the charges against her. The trial con­tin­ues.
