A person of Indian origin in Britain accused of killing his mother


In the UK, a 31-year-old Indian-origin man was charged with the murder of his mother and was presented before Wimbledon Magistrate Court in London on Friday.

Shanil Patel's 62-year-old mother Hansa Patel was arrested from home after suffering a head injury in Greenford, west London. The Metropolitan Police said in a statement that Shanil Patel is the son of Hansa Patel. An investigation into the incident was launched when police were called after a woman died of a head injury at home in Greenford.

A police chopper along with police officers and paramedics staff went there and the woman died of an injury to her head. Metropolitan West Area Command Chief Superintendent Peter Gardner said it was a tragic incident and that the police victims were with the family during this difficult time.
