– Murder detectives have arrested four relatives of a young mother who died in a suspected poisoning.

Two are being questioned and two have already been bailed after Sana Abbasi, 22, died in hospital on Friday.

Mrs Abbasi, who was from Pakistan and came to Britain because of an arranged marriage with a Bradford man, had been in the city’s Royal Infirmary with an unexplained illness for months.

The previously healthy woman was admitted with severe stomach cramps and unable to use her limbs 19 days after giving birth – without complications – to a daughter in April.

She spent most of the remaining 10 weeks of her life in intensive care apart from a brief recovery when, according to neighbours, she went home but was rushed back to hospital within days.

A 23-year-old man and a 56-year-old woman – believed to be her husband and his mother – were arrested on suspicion of murder after her death and have been bailed pending further enquiries.

A 28-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman from Bradford, both arrested yesterday, are still in police custody. They are thought to be the husband’s brother and sister-in-law.

A post-mortem gave grounds for suspicion, a West Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said. Police are awaiting the results of toxicology tests later this week.

Though she spoke fluent English, Mrs Abbasi is thought to have led an isolated life within her husband and his mother in the Pollard Park area of Bradford.

Police believe someone in the local community will know how Mrs Abbasi died and urged anybody with information to contact them.

Her three-month-old daughter is understood no longer to be in the care of the husband’s family.

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
