Man arrested following death of Oldham mum in Bradford

Police investigating the death of Oldham mum Kulsuma Akter, have arrested a 25-year-old man on suspicion of her murder.

The 27-year-old died after being stabbed whilst pushing a pram on Westgate in Bradford, at the junction with Drewton Road, at 3.21pm on Saturday.

A man from Oldham was arrested in the early hours today, in Aylesbury.

Members of the public and the media have been thanked for widely sharing appeals for information in relation to Kulsuma’s death.

Kulsuma was taken to hospital but subsequently died from her injuries. Her baby is safe and was not harmed in the incident.

Due to police having contact with Kulsuma prior to her death, West Yorkshire Police has referred itself to the Independent Office of Police Conduct.

“We understand that this has caused a considerable amount of concern in the local community. Local Neighbourhood Policing teams are patrolling the area conducting reassurance to the community.

“We would like to thank Thames Valley Police for their support and assistance in this matter.”
