Bradford taxicab driver over and again hit wifes head into a kitchen entryway Bradford Telegraph and Argus
“A BRADFORD cab driver whose wife of 30 years suffered a stroke after he repeatedly banged her head on a kitchen door has been jailed for ten months.
Parvez Akhtar, 54, flew into a rage before his night shift and attacked Naseem Akhtar at the home they had shared for 25 years, Bradford Crown Court heard yesterday.
He then sat watching television while paramedics attended to mother-of-four, Mrs Akhtar, who had slumped to the floor with double vision and two lumps to her head.
Akhtar, of Donisthorpe Street, West Bowling, Bradford, pleaded guilty to assaulting Mrs Akhtar and causing her actual bodily harm on April 25 last year.
Prosecutor Ben Campbell said he was convicted in 1994 of a similar offence against his wife when she intervened to stop him hitting a child.
He worked as a private hire driver and this time attacked Mrs Akhtar in the kitchen at 4.30pm after getting up to work a night shift.
Mr Campbell said he called her names and when a heated argument ensued, he grabbed her by the hair and threw her against a door.”
