The parents in the Irish nanny murder case have spoken of their ‘unimaginable pain’ after the death of their one-year-old daughter.

Cavan born Aisling McCarthy Brady faces homicide charges after the death of Rehma Sabir from injuries sustained in her Quincy family home.

Now Rehma’s parents have released a statement describing the ‘sorrow and suffering’ they have endured since their daughter’s death.

The Irish Independent reports that Sameer Sabir and his wife Nada Siddiqui are being comforted by family and friends as fresh details emerge about the one-year-old’s death.

Nanny McCarthy Brady remains in a Boston jail as she awaits a murder charge after the baby died from severe head injuries.

A statement released by the Middlesex district attorney after talks with the parents said: ““The family of this child is going through unimaginable pain and suffering and their wellbeing remains a priority for us.

“Very few can fully understand the sorrow and pain that they are enduring, and we need to allow them the appropriate time and support they require to cope with this tragedy.”

The report adds that baby’s father, Sameer Sabir, is a British-born entrepreneur. Her mother, Nada Siddiqui, is a Princeton-educated financial analyst who is originally from Pakistan.

Ireland’s Minister for Foreign Affairs Eamonn Gilmore has confirmed that officials from his department have made consular assistance available to McCarthy Brady.
