Police Scotland has today welcomed the jail sentence given to a 29-year-old man who subjected a woman to violent acts of domestic abuse.

At the High Court in Glasgow, Tayyab Ahmad was sentenced to 5 years after being found guilty of domestic abuse offences, including Wilful Fire raising, which occurred in the Oxgangs area of Edinburgh.

Detective Inspector Dougie Moran from Edinburgh Domestic Abuse Investigation Unit said: “This was an extremely dangerous and reckless act, which caused great distress to the victim.

“Tackling domestic abuse robustly is a key priority for Police Scotland. The sentence handed out to Tayyab Ahmad today reflects the commitment of the Domestic Abuse Investigation Unit, Police Scotland and the Crown Office in removing violent domestic offenders from our communities”.

“I would like to reassure the public that we treat all reports of domestic abuse with the utmost seriousness and professionalism and would urge victims of these offences to report their abuse to the police”.
