Harlow Council extends sympathy to Dr Shakoor

Councillor Mark Wilkinson, the Leader of Harlow Council, has extended his sympathy to Dr Shakoor on behalf of the Council, following the tragic death of three-year-old Maheen Shakoor:

On behalf of Harlow Council I would like to express our deepest sympathies to Dr Shakoor and our heart goes out to him.

I know that this news is another shock for the community as we had all so much hoped that young Maheen would pull through.

We can only imagine the pain Dr Shakoor is going through after losing his wife and all five of his children.

I'm sure the Harlow community will stay united and continue to do what it can to support Dr Shakoor, his colleagues and his friends.

On Thursday morning the Council opened a book of condolence at the Civic Centre which is available for the public to sign between 9am to 4.45pm Monday to Friday.
