“Beat your wife if she is not obedient”: A man believes in this wisdom and has beaten his wife mercilessly for more than 15 straight hours. He thinks she was "like a dog" and she should be treated like an animal.
On Valentine’s Day, Mohammed Fagirad, 30, a vice consul at the Afghanistan Consulate, was charged with beating his wife brutally inside their Flushing home from 8:30 AM Wednesday until nearly midnight, as told by the Queens District Attorney Richard Brown.
The man attacked his 22-year-old wife like a ferocious animal, and used all sorts of torturing methods on her like, biting, slapping, chocking, sitting on chest, beating with belt and pushing down a flight of stairs, according to the prosecutors. They have said, once he threw his wife up against a wall, held her there by the neck and then let her drop to the floor, where he beat her up with a belt.
Fagirad reportedly told police his "wife was a dog and he was going to treat her like a dog."
After this torture Fagirad left home when his wife, who was not named, fled to the 109th Precinct station house and filed a complaint of domestic violence against him. Prosecutors said, Fagirad after returning back home called the police from his wife’s cell phone to file a counterclaim.
Fagirad was brought before the Queens Criminal Court to answer the indictment. Prosecutors said, Fagirad's limited diplomatic immunity only covers work-related infractions.
Fagirad’s wife has been admitted to a hospital for the bruises and scratches on her neck and back.
