"A teenager has been jailed after he subjected his girlfriend to waterboarding and forced her to stand naked in front of the house.

A court heard that 16-year-old Zameer Ahmed punched his victim in the face and on her body, kicked her repeatedly, and throttled her with his bare hands.

He also tied her up with a dressing gown which he put around her face and mouth.

Ahmed pleaded guilty to assault causing actual bodily harm and engaging in controlling or coercive behaviour in an intimate or family relationship over a three-month period.

Jailing him for 12 months Judge Ebraham Mooncey said: ‘This is a very serious case and when one looks at the facts, had you been an adult you would be looking at a very lengthy sentence indeed.

‘All in all, you would have been leaving this court with six or seven years today.’

The judge said Ahmed had accepted the ‘most cruel of behaviours’ that a human being could inflict on another.

He also branded the waterboarding ‘almost barbaric’ and said the day-long assault had been ‘brutal’.

The court heard on one occasion Ahmed subjected the victim, who can’t be named, to a ‘sustained and brutal assault, beginning in the morning and ending in the evening’.

Prosecutor Mark Watson said: ‘It started with the defendant punching her to the face, knocking out her tooth. It continued by this defendant taking a metal pipe from a vacuum cleaner.

During the attack Ahmed also made her lie face down in a bath and held her head under the water.

After the last day-long assault, the girl contacted her mum to collect her and said she was ‘panicking and scared’.

Police were called and officers found ‘blood spattered on the bedroom wall, on bedding and the pillow’ and part off a tooth was also recovered.

The girl was taken to hospital and was found to have swelling, tenderness and scabs to the back of her right hand as well as bruising and tenderness on her right forearm.

She was also treated for redness around both of her eyes, bite marks on her left cheek and chest as well as bruising over both shoulders, tender ribs and scabs on her bottom.

Doctors even found a friction burn to her chin, bruising to her ears, a cut lip, a broken tooth and a 3.5cm long burn mark to her abdomen.

Stuart Newsam, defending, said Ahmed had been ‘traumatised by violence as a child despite his mother’s best efforts to protect him’ and this had ‘shaped him and his actions’."

From the article:
"The court heard he also wouldn’t let her out for ‘some days’ because her bruises would be seen by others.

Mr Watson added: ‘Part of the controlling behaviour was to stop her seeing friends and family.

After the last day-long assault, the girl contacted her mum to collect her and said she was ‘panicking and scared’."

My question would be how can this happen over a period of hours/days without parents being aware of this?

Don't worry, he probably won't be inside for an entire year, and when he gets out, he'll spend some time with his mum, and then do something even worse to somebody.... the odds on favorite is that he'll go look up his former girlfriend to pay her back for getting him in trouble.

Well, if that happens, hopefully she'll do the world a favor and end his miserable existence.
