Kamran Haider, 39, shook Nusayba, leaving her with catastrophic brain injuries.

Haider was convicted of murder and child abuse at the Old Bailey today.

The coward, who refused to appear in court, had a history of violence and abused a former girlfriend’s children to “teach them a lesson”.

Nusayba’s mother, Asiyah Amazir, released a powerful statement of sacrifice today as she described her agony at not seeing her daughter grow up.

She said: “Nusayba was subjected to the most horrific experiences at the hands of this man towards the end of her life.

“I will never forget the events leading up to her death as long as I live. I vividly remember the things she suffered and that noise she made on the last day of her life will haunt me forever.

“There are also the other more obvious implications of this horrific crime committed against my daughter.

“Things like I’ll never see them grow up, hear their first full sentence, see their first day of school, their first tooth loss, their first real tantrum and all the other beautiful milestones that a mother sees in her children’s lives.”

The mother also shared that she will never again “kiss her tiny hands” or enjoy the other “kindest and most underappreciated things that most as parents take for granted” that were snatched away from her.

She added: “Something as simple as changing her diapers or doing her laundry is now a heartbreaking memory for me and these are just a few of the lifelong impact of this crime that I can put into words.

“There are still a million things I can’t find the words to really explain the immediate and lifelong impact of my daughter’s murder, not only on me but on the rest of her family and we will be for the rest of ours have to live with these things.”

Haider met Asiyah on a dating site in August 2019 and moved into her home in Newham, East London.

Two weeks before the fatal attack, Nusayba suffered a head injury in his care, but Haider claimed she fell in the kitchen.

But as time went on, the devil became more and more threatening to the mother and daughter.

He shoved Nusayba into a corner, slapped her hand during the “time out,” and forced her into various “stress positions.”

If Asiyah intervened, Haider would hit her and accuse her of being “too soft”.


On September 13, 2019, the mother was taking care of the dogs in the garden when she heard the toddler crying.

She then heard Haider say, “Shut up, Nusayba,” followed by a clap and a “yelp.”

The tot later suffered a seizure and Haider suggested that Asiyah take her to “relax”.

The mother went and called an ambulance from a bus stop – she claimed her daughter fit on the bus.

But she later admitted that she was afraid of her partner and the monster was arrested.

Little Nusayba was taken to the hospital but unfortunately could not be saved and her life support was turned off.

Detective Chief Inspector Larry Smith, who led the investigation, said: “Haider is a controlling and violent man prone to bouts of extreme aggression and violence. Nusayba bore the brunt of this violence the day she was placed in Haider’s care, and she suffered an attack that would result in her death.

“What happened on September 13 has never been fully clarified. However, there is no doubt that the injuries inflicted on her could not have been accidental and were caused by Haider.

“Nusayba’s mother and family will mourn this harrowing case for many, many years. We will continue to support them wherever we can.

“I want to commend my officers who worked so hard to bring the case against Haider that led to his conviction. I hope he will now spend a very long time behind bars where he belongs.”
