A Muslim man has been arrested for murdering his Christian wife. According to reports, the 42-year-old man identified as Amir Darbanou, murdered his 35-year-old wife Nasrin Abek, for converting to Christianity. Darbanou reportedly stabbed her multiple times with a knife, inside their apartment on Wednesday, September 28, and her body was discovered around 6:20am on Thursday, September 29, by the police. Abek, a hairdresser, was found after her father had reported to the police that he had concerns about his daughter’s welfare in her husband’s house, following her conversion.
According to Abek’s father, Darbanou had made a call to him in Iran on Wednesday night, telling him his daughter was dead, he had gone ahead to get in touch with the police who eventually broke into the couple’s apartment in Potts Point, Sydney, Australia, where her body was found. According to neighbours, there was no previous history of domestic violence between the couple, until that night when some claimed to have heard a piercing scream around the time she may have been murdered.
