London: A pregnant Indian-origin woman has been killed after an arrow pierced through her abdomen in a crossbow attack in London, but her baby survived following an emergency Caesarean section.

Devi Unmathallegadoo, 35, was injured in the abdomen during the attack on Monday in Ilford area of east London. She died in a local hospital, where medics delivered her son.

On Tuesday, Scotland Yard officers charged Ramanodge Unmathallegadoo, 50, with the murder of 35-year-old woman, believed to be his former partner.

“The victim was found suffering an abdominal injury. She was taken to hospital where she later died,” the Metropolitan Police said.

“This is a tragic incident and our sympathies are with the loved ones and friends of the victim,” added Detective Chief Inspector Gary Holmes of the Met Police’s Homicide and Major Crime Command, which is leading the murder investigation.

Devi Unmathallegadoo was known locally as Sana Muhammad after reportedly converting to Islam when she married her husband Imtiaz Muhammad around seven years ago.

She had three children, aged 18, 14 and 12, with her former partner and two young girls, aged five and two, with Muhammad. The baby boy who was born as a result of an emergency Caesarean operation on Monday has been named Ibrahim by his father.

“She was a wonderful mother and wife. We were together seven years. I am heartbroken; we were inseparable,” Imtiaz Muhammad told the ‘Evening Standard’ newspaper.

The 42-year-old was at home when he noticed the attacker in their shed with a loaded crossbow. He ran back into the home to alert his wife and children, but she was shot with the arrow in her abdomen soon after.
