Cornish Street fans are disgusted after Imran Habib blamed Asha Alhan for the murder of Apple Franklin.
The lawyer – played by actor Charlie de Mello in ITV soap – used Asha’s relationship with Nina to argue that Corey saw her jealously attacking him and killing Apple.
When Corey’s lawyer Sabin forced Asha to admit that she loves Nina, Imran grabbed her.
He questioned her and made her think that it was her feelings for Nina that made Corey hate her – and the attack that killed Apple.
She was devastated by the accusation and took it to heart.
Dev was furious at how Imran had blamed Asha for Kore’s murder – and shouted back at the cobbler.
“How can you do that?” He called Imran
“My daughter barely stopped crying. That’s how you do your work, right? Do you tell children that it is their fault that someone died? I don’t know how you sleep at night.
You know? No, I haven’t had a good night’s sleep in weeks.
“How can I do that? It’s up to me whether a girl like Kelly, Asha, spends her life in prison for a crime she didn’t commit.
He added: “I am doing my best. I knew I had to rise up against Asha today and I knew I had to be tough on her and I hated her every second.
“The difference is that after Asha goes home – Kelly doesn’t come.”
The audience was disgusted with Imran’s behavior.
One wrote: “Imran was as bad as he showed his true colors, Asha and Dev.”
Another said: “I want to hug Asha after that.”
Another added: “Corey, don’t put it on Asha.”
