Married imam who left a young mother he was having an affair with in an out of control car as it rolled down a hill is spared jail

A married imam threatened a young married mother with whom he was having an affair and left her in an out of control car which was sent rolling down a hill has avoided a custodial sentence following a court hearing.

Married father-of-three Asim Karim, 34, had previously had a sexual relationship with the victim and asked to see her again.

The pair had arranged to meet late at night near the mosque in East Bristol where he is an imam, and he drove to the rural spot with her following behind.

But when they got to the destination, Karim’s car struck his victim’s and when she tried to take his photograph, he got into her vehicle and took her keys and released the handbrake.
