Coronation Street: Imran defends Kelly’s involvement in Seb’s murder, leaving viewers furious

Imran is Kelly's solicitor and foster dad

| Updated:

Coronation Street fans have turned against Imran Habeeb as he defended his foster daughter Kelly Neelan for her involvement in Seb’s murder.

Last week, Seb and Nina were viciously attacked by Corey Brent, Kelly Neelan and their friends.

Before the attack, viewers saw Kelly slap Nina across the face.

But in Friday’s episode (May 7) Seb failed his brain stem tests and died from his injuries.

This week, Asha refused to give Corey a false alibi and he tried to tell police he had no involvement in the attack.

But in last night’s scenes (Wednesday, May 12) Stefan encouraged his son to tell the police the truth about the attack.

Corey went to the police and told his side of the story.

Later Kelly was pulled in for more questioning and a forensic report revealed Kelly was in close proximity to Seb when he was attacked.

The detective revealed that an account of the assault suggested Kelly was the driving force behind the attack.

Imran explained to Kelly she needed to come clean about what happened, but she told her foster dad she feared he would hate her.

However Imran told the teenager he made a commitment to care and protect her.

Kelly then told the detective what happened and how she, Corey and the group began verbally attacking Seb and Nina.

But soon Eli pushed Nina down and Corey pushed Seb over and began kicking him.

She revealed she tried to pull Corey off Seb but Corey wouldn’t stop.

But the detective played the voicemail Seb left Abi moments before he was attacked and you could clearly hear Kelly laugh as Seb was pushed to the ground.

Imran said the laughter proved nothing and there was nothing to suggest Kelly was violent or encouraged any of the others to be violent.

The detective explained Corey gave them his account of the attack and that it matched forensic evidence.

There was also evidence proving Kelly slapped Nina.

As Kelly hadn’t offered up anything to the investigation, it wasn’t looking good for her.

Later Imran told Toyah that Kelly was due in court as Kelly has been charged with GBH on Nina and Seb’s murder.

Imran said to his girlfriend that he believed Kelly and needed to support her.

But fans turned on Imran for supporting the schoolgirl, as she had still been a part of the attack.
