A mother in Montreal confessed to repeatedly stabbing her teenaged daughter in the head and neck and said she did not regret what she did.Johra Kaleki, who lives in the Dorval neighbourhood of the city, told police after the alleged crime that her daughter, then 19-year-old Bahar Ebrahimi, was rebellious and had stayed out all night.She is accused of attacking Ms Ebrahimi in their home in June 2010. Her daughter survived, but suffered serious knife cuts to her face, neck, shoulder, and arms.
The trial, which is taking place in Montreal, began earlier this week. Police officers testified that when they responded to the scene at the family’s two-story suburban home, Kaleki was screaming, ‘I want to kill her! I want to kill her!’
She added: ‘She’s my daughter, I can do whatever I want,’ police said.
According to the National Post, Ms Ebrahimi stayed out late two nights in a row against her parents’ wishes.
The full four-hour police interrogation video, shot hours after the alleged stabbing, was shown to the court during the trial.
Near the end of it, she can be heard saying that her daughter would live with her neck wound for the rest of her life. She said that the experience ‘will make her strong and give her wisdom… it means she will give up her ways of living.’
Kaleki posted bail and has been granted permission to see her three other daughters, but only under supervision.
The trial will continue next Thursday.
