Nasir Uddin jailed for life
A MAN has been jailed for life for killing his mother because she would not move out of the family home in east London.
Nasir Uddin, 32, stabbed frail Khyrun Nessa, 70, five times with a knife and left her in the hallway for other members of the family to find, the Old Bailey heard.
Uddin had been had been distressed because Mrs Nessa had refused to abandon her home in Byng Street, Isle of Dogs.
Uddin was found guilty of murder following a retrial and told he must serve at least 22 years.
Judge Giles Forrester told him he had committed a “wicked and cruel” crime.
The judge added: “This was a horrific attack giving rise to a brutal and shocking murder.
“You were her youngest son. I cannot imagine a greater breach of trust than a son who murders his mother.”
Judge Forrester said he accepted that Uddin had been left in the middle because his wife Daisy and mother did not get on.
But he told the father-of-two that many other people in the same circumstances make the best of their lives.
The Old Bailey heard Uddin moved out of the house in August last year but was still eager his mother leave the house and had asked her to move in with another family member or move to Bangladesh.
But Mrs Nessa refused because the house had been specially adapted after she underwent an operation for cancer.
The Old Bailey was told Uddin turned up to the house on 12 August “during a 55-minute window of opportunity” to try again to persuade her with £1,000.
But when she refused, Uddin stabbed her to death.
Uddin, of Finsbury Park, north London, denied the murder in August last year.
