Family Jailed for Leaving Bride in Vegetative State in Huddersfield: Chemical Abuse and Neglect Exposed

A family has been sentenced to jail for leaving a bride in a vegetative state after allegedly dousing her with chemicals and force-feeding her pills.

Ambreen Fatima Sheikh, who was brought to Britain from Pakistan for an arranged marriage in 2013, has never regained consciousness since falling unconscious in July 2015.

Cruel Treatment and Lack of Medical Care

Ambreen’s husband, Asgar Sheikh, failed to call an ambulance for three days after she entered the vegetative state.

She was allegedly tortured and possibly doused with chemicals while locked away at the family home.

Asgar, along with his mother-in-law, Shabnam, and father-in-law, Khalid, were sentenced to prison, while two siblings-in-law received suspended sentences.

Details of Abuse and Neglect

The details of the abuse Ambreen suffered remain unclear, but it is believed she may have been forced to swallow pills prescribed to her diabetic mother-in-law, leading to a hypoglycaemic attack.

This incident, along with a pattern of violence, occurred behind closed doors at the family’s home in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.

Discovery of the Abuse

Ambreen was discovered unconscious in August 2015, and paramedics found her clean and in clean clothes, suggesting an attempt to cover up the abuse.

She was later found to have suffered a brain injury due to a blocked airway and remains in a vegetative state.

Neighbors Unaware of Ambreen’s Existence

Neighbors were shocked to learn about Ambreen’s situation, as they were unaware she was living in the house.

Despite living next to the family for years, neighbors had little interaction with them and did not know about Asgar’s marriage to Ambreen.

Shocked Community Reacts

The community was shocked by the news, as they had no idea about the abuse happening behind closed doors.

Ambreen’s case highlights the need for awareness and intervention in cases of domestic abuse and neglect.
