A high-flying businessman has pleaded not guilty to beating his wife and using controlling behaviour towards her for three years.

Tawhid Juneja, 35, was arrested after a disturbance on Sish Lane, Stevenage, on November 1 and charged with two counts of assaulting his wife by beating her.

Tawhid, of Welwyn’s Great North Road, was also charged with coercive and controlling behaviour towards his wife from Dec 2015 to Nov 2018 – namely assaults, threats of violence and punishment for minor infractions.

His brother Omar, 36, of Brunel Road in Stevenage, was charged with assaulting another woman in Sish Lane on November 1.

Both have pleaded not guilty to all counts at St Albans Magistrates’ Court and been bailed pending trial.

Tawhid’s Stevenage-based medical recruitment agency Primary Care People was best new agency in the 2017 UK Recruiter Awards, and he won FSB Hertfordshire’s Business Person of the Year 2016.
