A man told a court that his ex-wife attempted to disembowel him minutes after the couple had a four-hour sex session.
Bilal Miah, 31, says that after he and his ex-wife, 35-year-old Dalya Saeed, spent four hours having sex, she pulled out a carving knife and attempted to pull out his intestines. Miah survived the incident and testified in court against her.
Miah says that part of his small intestine was cut out of his body thrown onto the bedroom floor. He said he desperately tried to push his insides back into his stomach after his ex-wife attacked him.
According to Metro, Miah visited Saeed’s apartment, where the two argued about the custody of their daughter, before ending up in bed. After four hours of sex, things took a different turn.
“Suddenly in the blink of an eye, and I didn’t see the knife, she stabbed me twice in the belly,” Miah said in court. “I can only assume the knife came from either under the bed or the pocket of her dressing gown. My intestines were out, everything was out and she was grabbing hold of them, trying to pull them.”
He continued, “She broke one of them and threw it onto the floor but I managed to put the rest of them back in my belly.”
Miah told the court that he attempted to flee Saeed’s flat, but she chased him with a wooden bat and a meat cleaver.
Miah wasn’t found until 3 a.m., when neighbors heard Miah screaming and called police.
According to Mirror, Miah suffered 30 separate wounds and was forced to spend 10 days in the hospital. He needed to have two operations in order to fully recover.
Saeed denied charges of attempted murder and wounding with intent during her trial at Birmingham Crown Court.
“She caused his injuries,” Prosecutor Adam Western told the jury, according to Metro. “Her intention was nothing less than to kill him.”
Saeed reportedly told police that she was acting in self defense, as her ex-husband raped her. Records show that Miah had previously been physically and emotionally abusive toward Saeed during their two-year marriage.
No verdict was reached in the case and the trial continues.
