Doctors have carried out an emergency caesarean to save the life of an unborn child after a pregnant Newbury Park mother died following a confrontation in her home.
Police were called at around 7.40am on Monday (November 12) to reports of a disturbance at a home in Applegarth Drive.
Officers and paramedics attended and found 35-year-old Devi Unmathallegadoo, known locally as Sana Muhammad, suffering a wound to her abdomen.
She was taken to an east London hospital where she later died.
A Met Police spokeswoman told the Recorder: “We can confirm that the baby was delivered and remains in hospital in a stable condition.
