Obsessed stalker told woman he would ‘burn her house down with her in it’

An obsessive stalker from Nottingham told a woman that he was ‘going to burn your house down with you in it’. Tanveer Amin, of Holgate the Meadows, made a series of threats to the victim, who he had met online last year.

Another message from the 35-year-old on New Year’s Eve said he was “going to push her over the edge until she killed herself”. In a victim statement read out in Nottingham Crown Court on Thursday, June 23, the woman said her “world had been turned upside down” by Amin.

“I was once outgoing and independent, but I’m now scared to leave my home and have only left the house a handful of times since the start of the year,” she said. “I can’t sleep at night and every sound makes me think someone is going to hurt me. His actions have left me completely broken.”

Amin became obsessed with his victim over several months after the two started talking to each other online. After first exchanging numbers with Amin in June 2021, the duo then regularly argued over the phone to the extent the woman refused to meet up with him due to fears for her safety.

The tone of his messages gradually got so aggressive she had to block him several times. And the barrage of abuse continued into the new year with Amin sending more than 40 threatening voicemails before he was arrested on January 12.

Despite being banned from contacting the woman again, he then continued to call the woman from different phone numbers until he was re-arrested by police on April 10. Amin, who pleaded guilty to the charge of stalking involving fear of violence, was sentenced to a year and four months in prison, suspended for two years.

He was also made the subject of a restraining order. Police Constable Sharoon Ali, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Amin subjected his victim to months of sustained harassment and abuse, which has sadly left a lasting mark on her psychologically.

“Despite never actually meeting the woman in person, it’s clear that Amin still became dangerously obsessed with her to the point she had to block his number on multiple occasions. I’d like to commend her for having the bravery to reach out to the police and make us aware of what was happening to her so that we could help put a stop to it.”
