Muslim model hanged herself five months after getting court order against her parents to stop them forcing her into arranged marriage

A Muslim model who hanged herself feared she would be forced into an arranged marriage by her parents – whom she later learned were actually her aunt and uncle, an inquest was told.

Nadia Menaz, 24, of Oldham, Greater Manchester, feared Sabir Hussain and Ruksana Kousar would make her marry a man three years after wedding her husband Umar Rassol.

She took out a forced marriage protection order at a family court in Manchester last December which shielded her against Mr Hussain, 60, Miss Kousar, 55, and her immediate family.
