A barrister who falsely accused her married lover of rape and then arranged to be stabbed in order to frame him, has been jailed for life. Anisah Ahmed, 33, embarked on a twisted plot to destroy fellow lawyer Iqbal Mohammed's life, after discovering he was married in 2014. The couple met after she contacted him when he appeared in a BBC documentary called The Barristers and they began an intimate relationship. But on realising she had been betrayed she set about getting revenge, with Mr Mohammed claiming he was left feeling like the Michael Douglas character in the film Fatal Attraction. Her campaign started when she sent details of their affair to his wife and colleagues and demanded his legal chambers launch an investigation into his integrity. She then created a fake email account in Mr Mohammed's name and sent threatening messages to herself. As a result of the false allegations, Mr Mohammed was arrested in front of his colleagues and taken to a police station where he was questioned for several hours. He was subsequently cleared when IT experts discovered that the emails had been falsified and Ahmed was arrested on suspicion of harassment. Despite being charged with the offence, Ahmed escalated her campaign against her former lover, telling police that he had repeatedly raped her. Oxford Crown Court was told: "Her complaint was detailed and convincing, even though it was completely false. "Her purpose was twofold - revenge and to divert the police attention away from herself and back onto Mr Mohammed. In the short term it worked. Mr Mohammed was again arrested and interviewed."
