Mother of Mikaeel Kular to appear in court over death
The mother of three-year-old Mikaeel Kular, whose body was found behind their former home in Kirkcaldy in Scotland, is to be charged over her son’s death and will appear in Edinburgh Sheriff court today.
Mother of five Rosdeep Kular, 33, was arrested on Friday, after the police discovered her son’s body in woodlands behind her sister’s house.
At a police press conference last night, assistant chief constable Malcolm Graham thanked over 200 volunteers who assisted the search for Mikaeel in extremely adverse conditions and temperatures.
Graham said: “The police received over 500 calls from members of public looking to assist in establishing the circumstances of Mikaeel’s disappearance.”
The hunt for Mikaeel began after Rosdeep informed the police on Wednesday that her son had gone missing after she had put him to bed at their home in Ferry Gait Crescent in Edinburgh.
On Thursday, a major police investigation was launched to trace the boy and over the weekend the forensic team discovered his body some 25 miles away from Fife at the back of the bungalow now home to Pandeep Kular, 37, Mikaeel’s aunt and Rosdeep Kular’s sister.
Miss Kular’s former husband, Omotoso Adekoya, a Nigerian taxi driver, is the father of her three oldest children, while the father of twins Mikaeel and Ashika has had no contact with them.
