A SOUTH Australian man who cut off of his ex-girlfriend’s tongue in a jealous rage on the Gold Coast has been jailed for 8-and-a-half years.
Mohammed Tasleem Tahir, 23, pleaded guilty in the Southport District Court to causing grievous bodily harm to his 20-year-old former partner.
Judge Katherine McGinness condemned his attack as “persistent and devastating”.
But due to his youth and lack of violent criminal history she set him parole eligibility from September next year.
Tahir admitted he followed his ex-partner from Adelaide to the Gold Coast in 2010 and confronted her in her apartment on November 13 claiming he wanted to ‘repair’ the relationship.
When she resisted he bashed her with an large, empty Bundaberg Rum bottle and used a knife to cut slits in the corners of her lips and to sever part of her tongue. He then strangled her in the bedroom and only stopped when she played dead.
