#Controlling: Life in jail for 'DEVIOUS' husband who strangled wife to death

A "devious"  and "manipulative" husband who strangled his pregnant wife just two weeks after receiving a police caution for threatening her with a hammer has been jailed for life.

Security guard Mohammed Badiuzzaman, 34, told his colleagues that he planned to kill his wife Sabeen Thandi, saying that he "could get away with domestic violence" and that jail in Britain was "easy peasy", the Old Bailey heard.

Badiuzzaman was today sentenced to a minimum of 17 years in prison by Judge Christopher Moss for the murder of Mrs Thandi at her home in East London in July last year.

Two weeks before her death Mrs Thandi had obtained a restraining order against Badiuzzaman for threatening her with a hammer after she had begun divorce proceedings against him.

Several police officers are now believed to be under investigation by the police regulator the Independent Police Complaints Commission for releasing Badiuzzaman before he killed his wife.

The court heard that Badiuzzaman had begun dating Mrs Thandi in November 2012 before forcing her into a Muslim marriage.  Soon after the wedding he began to impose numerous restrictions on Mrs Thandi, preventing her from leaving the house alone and threatening her with "his wrath" if she didn't wear a hijab.

By the middle of last year, Mrs Thandi had had enough and went to a solicitors in Watford in June to start divorce proceedings and obtained an order preventing Badiuzzaman from entering the family home - which was owned by her - as she grew concerned about her children's safety. 

Days later Badiuzzaman is said to have threatened Mrs Thandi, demanding that she withdraw the order.

After Mrs Thandi called her solicitors pleading with them to withdraw the court order, the solicitors were moved to call the police and Badiuzzaman was arrested but later released with a caution.

Police then received two emergency calls from the couple's home on 7 July.  When police officers arrived, Badiuzzaman is said to have calmly told them that he had killed his wife but refused to reveal how or when. 

Mrs Thandi was confirmed dead after being taken to Newham University Hospital in East London.

Sentencing Judge Moss said: "From all that I’ve heard about you I have no doubt that you are a manipulative, devious and controlling person with a serious anger management issue.

"It’s clear from the way in which she died that you intended that she should die. You strangled her in her bedroom in her own home."

He added: ‘You murdered your estranged wife in her own home which you were excluded from by order of the county court.  It’s clear from the evidence in the case that this was an order you deserved and which you had no respect for, indeed you resented it.  You have deprived those children of the love and care of their mother in their formative years of their lives.  You had no conceivable defence."
