Not really trade-related, but...

And it's a while since we've read anything from Hull :sad:

Taxi driver Mohammad Qoraishi stabs wife to death because she refused to move to Hull ... er-2971664

A taxi driver jailed for 16 years after stabbing and strangling his teenage wife to death because she refused to move to Hull.

Mohammad Qoraishi killed his wife Parwin, in Kent on Christmas Day 2018, when he hit her across the head with a frying pan, stabbed her 38 times in the head, face, chest and thighs, and finally strangled her.

Qoraishi, 27, was working as a black cab driver in Hull and it is believed most of his trade was outside Paragon Interchange, before he made the move to Maidstone in November to be with his new wife, who was 19.

Last week, Maidstone Crown Court heard the couple had had an arranged marriage in Afghanistan in August last year.

They were paternal cousins and had grown up together in the same house in their native country, reports Kent Live.

But there were tensions between Qoraishi and his father-in-law Gulwali Quriashi within a few weeks of the wedding.

Qoraishi, who came to England alone from Afghanistan in 2007 and built a life for himself in Hull, wanted his new bride to join him. However, her family had insisted he came to Maidstone.

In a text to Parwin in November last year and while still living apart, Qoraishi complained: "I'm f***ing p***ed off big time. People are telling me what type of wife you have when she doesn't give a s*** about you.

"You make things hard for me now. I have to work like a donkey now. I am coming but I'm not happy at all because you don't listen to me."

A friend of Qoraishi, who is also known as Tawos, tried to intervene but was told by Parwin's father, also a taxi driver: "Curse to his clan, curse to anyone backing him.

"Tawos is no more than a donkey. Tawos is an animal."

Qoraishi moved to Maidstone on November 13, with Parwin moving into his flat on December 20.

Just five days after moving in together, the taxi driver was said to have “snapped and lost control” as Parwin cooked eggs in the kitchen of their flat on December 25.

He first hit Parwin to the back of her head with the pan, then stabbed her 38 times with a 7 to 8 inch kitchen knife to her head, face, chest, and thighs.

Parwin, who had been accepted to study law at university, was also strangled.

A neighbour later told police they heard banging, a woman screaming, and a man aggressively and repeatedly shouting “Allah”.

Her family last spoke to her on Christmas Eve, with her father and police officers finding her unresponsive on the kitchen floor the next day.

Prosecutor Alexandra Healy QC told the court: "Parwin Quriashi was the victim of a ferocious and sustained attack in her own kitchen.

"She had 38 stab wounds. She had also been strangled and hit to the back of her head with a frying pan.

"The defendant fled the scene in his Audi A3 and was subsequently apprehended in the vicinity of Dover, no doubt the Crown say, intending to try to leave the country, not appreciating that because it was Christmas Day, the Port of Dover was closed."

Parwin was lying on her side with her right hand clutching the knife by both its handle and blade. Her clothing of pink top, trousers and socks were blood-stained.

On seeing his daughter, a distraught Mr Quriashi was said to have thrown himself on top of her as attempts to resuscitate her were made.

However, despite their efforts and those of paramedics and an air ambulance crew, Parwin could not be revived and was declared dead at the scene.

Parwin's cause of death was multiple stab wounds and strangulation. Some of her injuries were inflicted with considerable force and even after she had died.

The frying pan and another cooking pot were found damaged, and any one of the seven knife wounds to her neck could have proved fatal.

Qoraishi fled the flat in his car, triggering an ANPR camera at 12.22pm, and drove to see a relative in Croydon before heading to Dover.

He was spotted by a police patrol on the A2 just after 4.30pm as he waited at traffic lights and was arrested. His denim jacket, jeans and T-shirt were blood-stained.

Passing sentence, Judge David Griffith-Jones QC said Qoraishi had “frenziedly and senselessly” murdered his young wife, who would have been a “bright light” at Canterbury Christchurch University.

He added that although the attack was not premeditated, he had acted in a fit of rage and intended to kill.

"You took Parwin's life, in her new home, when she was aged only 19”, he told Qoraishi. “You thereby deprived her of all the future joys and potential accomplishments to which she would have been looking forward.

"You also wrenched her from her immediate family in the most unexpected and brutal of fashions, depriving them of a daughter and sister, thereby inflicting on her parents and siblings a degree of pain and suffering so sudden and extreme that it will surely live with them forever.

"I accept you were not your normal self. You were in a rage and you snapped. However, the inescapable fact is you then proceeded deliberately to perform these acts of utter barbarity.

"You have now, in the cold light of day, had to face the enormity of what you have done, and I am prepared to accept that your feelings of shame, embarrassment and remorse are genuine and not simply the product of self-pity."

No one from Parwin's family was in court and their victim personal statements were not read out.

The court heard Parwin and her family came to England in 2011. After her marriage was arranged, she and Qoraishi spoke on the phone and he would visit her in Maidstone.

The prosecutor said tensions arose after their wedding in August last year. Following a month stay in Afghanistan, Qoraishi returned to Hull but Parwin returned to her family.

"It became clear her family were not going to let her leave Maidstone," said Miss Healy.

Bernard Tetlow QC, defending, said Qoraishi had led a law-abiding and productive life until Christmas Day last year, and there were no previous reports of violence between the couple which could have “flagged up” what was to happen.

"What is obvious is that there were considerable tensions and strains, particularly between the defendant and his father-in-law," Mr Tetlow told the court.

"That in no way excuses what happened thereafter but it appears from what we can infer and deduce that the tensions and stresses on the defendant built up to such an extent that he completely lost control on that day.

"This was not premeditated but a spontaneous outburst of extreme violence."

Qoraishi admitted killing Parwin, and was sentenced to at least 16 years and 82 days before being considered for parole.
