A woman tried to kill her ex-husband by stabbing him with a carving knife and attempting to pull out his intestines after they had sex, a court was told.

As seriously injured Bilal Mohammed desperately tried to push his intestines back into his stomach and flee, former wife Dalya Saeed allegedly continued her attack.

Birmingham Crown Court heard that the scorned ex-wife bludgeoned Mr. Mohammed with a salt and pepper grinder and attacked him with a machete when he was outside.

Saeed, 34, denies attempted murder.

She admitted stabbing her former husband but claimed she had been defending herself after he had raped her and then attacked her with the machete.

Mr. Mohammed, 31, said he had come to the UK on a student visa and met the defendant when they had both worked in a restaurant in Birmingham.

The couple had a daughter but split up in 2013 and he had remarried.

The taxi driver said on October 19 last year his ex-wife had phoned him and asked him to go to her home in Forest Road, Moseley, because she had “something important” to discuss about their daughter.

He said he told her he was going to meet a friend before arriving at the address in the early hours of the next day where they had consensual sex.

Mr. Mohammed said they had then talked about their daughter and that Saeed said she feared that if he was given custody of her, he would take her to Pakistan “forever”.

He said he had told her that would not happen and that they then started to have sex again.

He added: “She started to kiss my lips, my neck and my chest and then all of a sudden, within a blink of an eye, she stabbed me twice in the belly.

“I do not know whether the knife was under the bed or in her robe.

“I said to her, ‘What have you done?’ She then stood up and stabbed me again.

“I grabbed the knife from her. When I grabbed the knife my intestines were out. She was trying to hold on to my intestines and pull them.

“She pulled part of them off. I threw the knife behind a sofa and held the rest of them in my belly.”

Mr. Mohammed said he then tried to get out of the flat but claimed Saeed pushed the door closed and then started to hit him on the head with the grinder.

He said he eventually did manage to get out in the street where he was shouting for help, but the attack allegedly continued until he managed to get into the entrance of another property.

Prosecutor Paul Western said Mr. Mohammed was later treated for a number of injuries and that the ones he suffered to his abdomen had been “life threatening”.

He added: “The violence used by Dalya Saeed was without justification.

“The clearest evidence of the defendant’s intention to kill Bilal Mohammed is that she ripped or possibly cut part of his intestines from his body, having cut open his abdomen. That alone could have killed him.

“Even when she must have known he was frightened for his life and was struggling to escape from her flat, Saeed persisted in her attack and inflicted even more serious injuries.”

The trial continues.
