Police have launched an investigation after a 14-month-old girl died in suspicious circumstances when she fell ill at home.

Inayah Ahmed was taken to hospital in Glasgow last month after suddenly becoming unwell, but despite the efforts of medical staff she died three days later.

It was only after a post-mortem examination that police began a formal inquiry into the toddler’s death. No arrests have been made.

It is understood that Inayah lived in the house with up to 11 other members of her extended family, including her grandparents, her aunt’s family and two uncles.

Yesterday, a spokesman for Police Scotland said: ‘Police are treating her death as suspicious and inquiries are continuing.’

Officers refused to confirm how Inayah died or release the results of the post-mortem investigation.

 

News of the baby’s death has stunned the local community who say the family, who are believed to have relatives living nearby, were always very friendly.

A friend of the family, who has asked to remain anonymous, said: ‘They are a very nice family; they are just like any other family. Their kids are always in and out playing.

‘I was told that the baby choked on a piece of toast. It’s really sad that it has happened to a wee baby like that.’

Two other neighbours on the quiet cul-de-sac said they had heard that the baby had been struggling to eat and was being fed through a syringe.

It is understood locally that the grandmother and her husband are the householders, while one of their three sons is Inayah’s father, who is believed to be in his mid-20s

Other members of the family live at other properties elsewhere on the estate. None of the family could be contacted for comment yesterday.

Relatives have launched a fundraising campaign in the memory of the young girl in order to donate money to children who need medical care in the Middle East.

The wrote: ‘On the April 20 our beloved Inayah went back to our creator. She was the life and soul of the family. Without her laughter and antics, everything seems so dull.

‘But Inayah left us with many lessons in her short space of time with us. One of them being to hold each and every one of your family members close to your heart.’
