LONDON Dec 16: A Keralite mother and her two children were allegedly murdered by her husband and father to her two children at their home in Kettering. Although police have not yet revealed the names of the deceased news reports from Kerala confirm that the family is from Kannur.

The deceased have been identified as Anju (40), a native of Vaikom in Kottayam; and her children Jhanvi (4) and Jeeva (6). The woman’s husband Chelevalan Saju (52), a native of Kombanpara at Kannur’s Padiyoor panchayat, is being questioned by Northamptonshire police.

Speaking to Malayala Manorama, Padiyoor panchayat president B Shamsudhin, who spoke with the relatives of Saju back home, said that the woman and her children were found with injuries in their house at Petherton Court in Kettering. Shamsudhin said Anju had been working as a staff nurse with Kettering General Hospital for the past year. Both the children were born at Padiyoor, but they were staying in Vaikom with their mother before moving to Kettering. “They used to come here for vacations,” he said.

Saju was working in Saudi Arabia. “But when Anju got the job in the UK, he too joined them,” Shamsudhin said. “He is working as a delivery man for restaurants there,” said the panchayat president.

According to Northamptonshire Telegraph, “police officers were called to Petherton Court in Kettering at 11.15am (December 15) where a woman and two children believed to be around aged 6, and a girl understood to be aged 4, were found with serious injuries. The woman died at the scene and the two children later died in hospital. A 52-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the incident and remains in police custody. At this time, officers are not seeking anyone else. Forensic post-mortem examinations to establish the cause of death will be taking place in the coming days.

A triple murder investigation has been launched following the death of the woman and two children.

It is not sure whether it was a sudden provocation or any other reasons that led to the massacre.

According to community members, after passing his driving license recently, Saju bought a Vauxhall Zafira car and was looking for delivery work. The Vauxhall Zafira was removed from the scene on a flatbed truck by the police.

It is assumed Saju would have revealed at the beginning of the interrogation that he had committed the murder and therefore the police decided not to extend the investigation to others and thus issued the statement that they are not looking for anyone else in this incident.

The circumstances that led to the massacre is yet to be ascertained.
