All she ever wanted to be was a good wife.

But new bride Sanam Parvez was subjected to violence from day one of her marriage, a court heard.

She was threatened with a knife, kicked and punched in her head and had a laptop lead wrapped around her neck so that she struggled to breathe.

Her husband Jabran Khan said that their marriage had been arranged and he never loved her.

He was found guilty following a trial of five charges of assault and today (April 26) was jailed for 26 weeks.

Kirklees Magistrates’ Court heard that Mrs Parvez had changed from a bubbly woman to withdrawn and afraid to leave the house after suffering months of beatings at the hands of the pharmacist.

Jailing Khan, District Judge Michael Fanning said: “This is a hideous case of violence, leaving your victim emotionally scared to a degree which will never heal.

“Offending such as this must be custodial as a mark of society’s horror.”

The Huddersfield court heard that Mrs Parvez was subjected to violence from the start of her six-month arranged marriage to Khan.

In August during a row at the couple’s home in Broomer Street, Ravensthorpe, Khan punched his wife to her face and head.

Shamaila Qureshi, prosecuting, said: “He pulled her by her hair like a rag doll and she crouched down next to the gas fire. The defendant returned from the kitchen with a knife, ran at her and she ran upstairs to safety.”

The court heard about another incident in September when the couple were returning from a family wedding.

Khan’s mother and her friend were also in the car when the 26-year-old turned round and punched Mrs Parvez in her face.

Mrs Qureshi told of a particularly shocking attack, again at the couple’s home between August and September.

She said: “She was sat on the sofa and he kicked and punched her in the head several times. He then picked up a laptop lead, wrapped it around her neck and pulled it hard and she couldn’t breathe.”

On another occasion during an argument over Khan’s infidelity, he became aggressive and asked Mrs Parvez if she wanted a fight.

Mrs Qureshi said: “She pushed him away, caught him with her nails and ripped his shirt.

“He laughed at her, calling her abusive names and grabbed her hair and pulled her to the floor. While she was on the floor he kicked her to the head.”

On December 5 when she was packing her bags to leave, Khan got angry when he asked for his aftershave and she replied that she didn’t know where it was.

He pushed her against a wall, dragged her to the floor and stamped on her head as she lay there.

Mrs Qureshi said: “He kicked her like a football with full force more than once.

“She says all she ever wanted to do was be a good wife and make her marriage - she didn’t report him to police because she thought he’d change.

“The effect of this crime is she has been diagnosed with anxiety. She doesn’t want to go out alone and has isolated herself.”

Mrs Parvez was left with injuries including bruising all over her body and some of her hair was ripped out.

Judge Fanning also made an indefinite restraining order banning Khan from contacting his wife. He must pay her £1,000 compensation.
