Bangladeshi Ahmed, who had no job, no money, no home and no prospect of marriage, had tried to 'calm himself down' by consulting the Koran, but 'lost it' after believing that Mrs Khan had laughed at him.

Three of Mrs Khan's four children and her 13-year-old niece were upstairs when Ahmed attacked her and were alerted to what had happened by her screams.

Her 13-year-old daughter held her hand as she lay dying on the sofa while her 17-year-old son tried in vain to revive her.

Ahmed had been lodging at the home of his brother Mohammed Rahman, 53, a successful restaurant owner, and his wife of 20 years Razu in Oldham, Greater Manchester, when he attacked Mrs Khan during the school half term holidays on June 8

Ahmed had arrived in the UK with a work permit in 2004 and had been casually employed at the family restaurant in Cheshire. He felt he had been 'poorly treated' by his brother and sister-in-law, despite Mr Rahman giving him food and shelter.

He became 'frustrated with the predicament of having no job and being unable to leave the family home and return to Bangladesh,' the court heard.

The night before the murder he felt 'increased frustration' and turned to his Koran in an effort to calm himself.
I sometimes like to snort an 8-ball of cocaine to calm down, i never thought of reading the Koran.
