A Bradford mother has been found guilty of drugging and kidnapping her daughter after she refused to enter an arranged marriage.

Shamin Akhtar, 58, took the drastic action after her youngest daughter Naila Afsar refused to honour a pact she had made with her sister, for their children to marry.

After breaking off the engagement to her first cousin Amraiz Khan in July 2009, Naila Afsar ran away to Newcastle to secretively marry the man of her choice because she thought she would be killed.

Detectives have described the mother-of-eight’s crime as “every child’s worst nightmare”.
