SON was charged with the murder of ‘kind’ Ealing Hospital worker in west London.

Hansa Patel, 62, was found suffering from head injuries at the home she shared with her husband and son Shanil Patel, 31, in Drew Gardens, Greenford.

Patel was pronounced dead at the scene on Wednesday(25).

The Metropolitan Police said that Patel died after being found with head injuries. Shanil Patel was arrested following the incident.

He was produced before Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court in London on Friday(27) and was charged with his mother’s murder.

Patel was remanded in custody and will appear at the Old Bailey on Tuesday(1), the Met Police said.

A neighbour described the family as ‘very nice and quiet’ and said that Patel was hoping to retire this year at Ealing hospital.

“It’s awful, she was so kind, it’s so painful. They have lived here a long time, my heart sinks for them all,” she told The Evening Standard.

Another neighbour Kharis George said that they were a great and respectful family and ‘it is upsetting’ what has happened.

Chief Superintendent Peter Gardner said: “I would like to reassure residents who will have noted a large police presence in the area that these officers are there to assist with the investigation and also to provide local reassurance and support.”
