Man threw daughter, killed her, court hears.


A man “violently” threw or forced his baby daughter’s head against an “unforgiving” hard surface that left her brain damaged and killed her, a court has heard. Azzes Mahomed, 31, is accused of murdering his 11-week-old daughter , Tahani Mahomed, who died in Auckland’s Starship Hospital on New Year’s Day 2008. The baby was admitted to Middlemore Hospital in December 28, 2007 with severe head injuries.

South-African born Mahomed also faces two charges of causing Tahani grevious bodily harm for allegedly breaking her leg between October 7, 2007 and December 26 2007, inflicting a head injury causing brain damage, and an additional charge of neglect for failing to provide her with the necessities of life on about December 27-28 , which is when the Crown say the little girl was murdered. The girl’s mother Tabbasum Mahomed, 26, is charged with neglect by failing to provide the necessaries of life.

Both parents deny the charges! The little girl was in the sole ‘care’ of her parents during her short life, she was too little to crawl on her own but somehow managed to break her leg and fracture her skull by herself?
