Who Was Anju Asok?
Anju Asok, originally from Viakom in Kerala’s Kottayam district, has worked at a local hospital in Kettering since last year. She worked as a nurse in the orthopedic department at Kettering General Hospital, which praised its “dedicated and compassionate” employee.
Anju Asok was a trained nurse who joined our KGH family in 2021 and primarily worked on Barnwell B, one of the hospital’s Orthopaedic wards. Her coworkers liked and respected her as a committed and empathetic staff nurse.
The news of the deaths “devastated” Sarah Powell, head teacher at Kettering Park Infant Academy, where the two children attended. Flowers and notes have been left near the family’s home in Kettering as tributes to the deceased have continued to pour in.
Her colleagues are receiving appropriate professional support from the hospital. Residents in the area were shocked to learn of the deaths.
People can’t believe it, said business manager Pierino Geranio, who runs his uncle’s barber shop near the cul-de-sac where the incident occurred a day after the fatalities.
Several bouquets and cuddly toys have been left alongside the Police cordon that has blocked off Petherton Court.
One of the tributes was accompanied by an unsigned note: “The news shocked and devastated us. The community will never forget this tragic and upsetting incident. RIP. We hope you’re doing better now.”
