He was asked by Mr Matherlees about text and e-mail messages he later sent her, saying he was sorry and adding "please forgive me" and "I can't live with myself".

He said moments later his mother, the only adult in either of their families to know about their relationship, arrived home and offered todrive Sana back to school when he said he wanted her to leave.

Imram's girlfriend, giving her evidence earlier this week, denied hitting him and said she was only unconscious on the floor because he put her there.

Imram denies five charges of assault and one of wounding against Sana and also one charge of assaulting her friend by pushing her out of the way.
