Mirza returned home only to discover Fardous had smashed up their home, including the television and mirror. ardous then attacked Raza ‘straight away’ with a kitchen knife trying to stab him in the chest. Mirza was able to react quick enough to avoid being stabbed in the chest but the knife went into his left arm. Mirza fled the house after Fardous threatened to get another knife when she realised the impact of the first knife hitting bone had broken the handle.

Prosecutor Nick Adlington told Bradford Crown Court that Fardous he was not surprised that Mr Raza did not provide a victim impact statement and there was no application for a restraining order, The Telegraph and Argus reported. Judge Neil Davey QC told Fardous: “Your anger had already boiled over by the time he got home from work.” “He discovered that his home was in disarray with the television and the mirror both broken. That much he could see. What he could not see was the kitchen knife with which you had already armed yourself. “An argument started straight away. You quickly produced the knife and tried to stab him in the chest.” Fardous was jailed for four-and-a-half years.
