London, July 24 (IANS) A man in Britain, who refused to take his pregnant wife to hospital until she made him lunch, was spared jail, the Daily Mail reported Tuesday.

Riasaf Ahmed, 25, regularly beat Ruqayyah Ghani on the orders of his “controlling” mother after their 2006 arranged marriage.

Ahmed, of Harrow Road, Middlesbrough, launched his horrific hour-long attack on his pregnant wife on Christmas Day 2010, punching her in the face and grabbing her wrists to get her to hand over money as a crisis loan.

The next day he refused to take her to hospital for treatment for stomach pains unless she made him a meal.

Judge Tony Briggs said Ahmed’s campaign of brutality and humiliation was disgraceful, but gave Ahmed the suspended jail term after hearing he has a serious medical condition, according to the Mail.
