Norwegian mother drowns baby while British boyfriend watches online
A MOTHER drowned her one year old baby daughter in a bucket live on Skype while her boyfriend watched from Britain.
Yasmin Chaudhry, who is from Norway, killed the one year old by plunging her, head first into water during the video conversation which took place at 3am.
According to a report by The Sun, the boyfriend watched the murder from London as the child was held under the surface until she had stopped breathing.
Chaudhry, 26, reportedly told the police that the couple had been discussing how to discipline the child for “disobeying her”.
After she had realised the baby had stopped breathing, Chaudhry put in an emergency call, telling paramedics that the girl had fallen into the bucket by accident.
Following her arrest on suspicion of murder, Chaudhry claimed that her boyfriend, who is not the child’s father – told her to do it. Yet both deny wanting to kill the baby.
Police officers flew from Oslo to Britain to question the British man – who has not been named - with the help of Scotland Yard shortly before Christmas.
Norwegian police prosecutor Kristin Rusdel told the newspaper:
‘They have the same story, but with some differences’
‘She says he instructed her to do it, whereas he says that they more or less figured it out together after talking about how to discipline her’.
‘He admits he saw it over the internet but the intention was never to kill her. They were both scared and decided to cover it up’.
The pair had met once in read life and had carried the relationship on over the internet for over a year.
Chaudhry’s five year old son was taken into care following her arrest.
Yesterday she was remanded until February 4.
Ms Rusdel confirmed to The Sun that a preliminary murder charge had been filed against the Briton adding that the police were considering extradition.
The baby’s father now lives in Pakistan after splitting with the mother, his lawyer commenting that ‘he is of course, very shocked’.
If convicted, the pair will face a minimum of eight years behind bars.
