A father is accused of threatening to kill his teenage daughter and pointing a loaded handgun at her because he was upset that she cam out as a lesbian.
Kamiran Bakir from North Dakota in the US was arrested on a felony charge of terrorising after he told the teen he would “blow her head off”. He also allegedly pointed the loaded weapon at other relatives who were in the car at the time.
After police arrested him, Bakir told them he didn’t really want to harm his daughter and that he was just upset by the news that she’s a lesbian, court papers said.
The victim told police her father said “she was lucky that she’s not eighteen because he would have put a bullet in her head”.
A relative told police that Bakir was troubled by his daughter’s sexual orientation because of his religion, which police believe is Islam, court papers said.
Bakir will appear in court on March 30
