Anju Asok Biography
Anju Asok, 35, and children Jeeva Saju, 6, and Janvi Saju, 4, were discovered by police at Petherton Court in Kettering on Thursday morning.
The woman, a nurse at Kettering General Hospital, died at the scene and the two children died at the hospital, police said.
A 52-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder.
He remains in custody being questioned by detectives.
Formal identification of the woman and children has not yet been carried out, police said.
Senior Investigation Officer Det Insp Simon Barnes said post-mortem forensic examinations would take place over the next two days and the neighborhood police team was patrolling the area.
“We continue to work around the clock to advance this investigation and establish the timeline of the events leading up to these tragic deaths,” Mr. Barnes said.
He said detectives were not tracking anyone else in connection with the incident.
Kettering General Hospital chief executive Deborah Needham said Ms Asok was an “internationally trained nurse” who had primarily worked at Barnwell B in one of the hospital’s orthopedic wards since joining in 2021.
“She was a committed and compassionate staff nurse, loved and respected by her dear friends and colleagues,” said Ms Needham, who called the news “extremely disturbing.”
“All our thoughts are with her friends and family as they come to terms with this sudden loss.”
Police said the hospital was “offering appropriate professional support” to his colleagues.
Pierino Geranio, who runs a barbershop near the cul-de-sac where the incident occurred, said Friday: “You tell people about it and they just can’t believe it.
“I come here every day to work and you never expect something like this, it’s so tragic. It’s totally terrible, beyond comprehension.”
Another local resident, who asked not to be named, said: “It’s terrible to hear something like that anywhere, but when children are involved it’s indescribable.”
Superintendent Steve Freeman said: “There are no words to describe how upsetting this incident is, but I want to assure the public that we have a team of detectives working on the case, absolutely determined to bring justice for this woman and two children.” .”
