A serious case review is underway following the tragic death of eight-year-old Ayesha Ali.
A spokesman for Barking and Dagenham Council admitted that the little girl, who was found dead in her bedroom in Broomfield Road, Chadwell Heath, in August 2013 with more than 50 injuries, was not known to its safeguarding service.
Ayesha’s mum, Polly Chowdhury, 35, and her lover, Kiki Muddar, 43, were today found guilty of her manslaughter following a month-long trial at the Old Bailey.
In a statement, the council said it was “deeply saddened by this tragic event, which could not have been predicted”.
It continued: “This was a terrible, unexpected, incident. The child appeared to be a happy, loved child, who was a delight to teach at school. She seemed to have been managing her parents’ separation well.”
