'Murdered' doctor found dead with her daughter, 14, was a hero to patients during lockdown, her boss reveals

A DOCTOR discovered dead with her daughter had gone out of her way to help patients during lockdown, her boss said.

Dr Saman Mir Sacharvi, 49, and Vian Mangrio, 14, were found in their fire-damaged house in Burnley.

Dr Sacharvi, who had been strangled, was a junior doctor at a Blackburn perinatal centre.

Paying tribute to her, perinatal lead consultant Gill Strachan said: "Dr Sacharvi was empathic and well-liked by the women and families that she worked with.

"Her colleagues described her as very kind, brilliant and a joy to work with.

"During lockdown when Covid-19 restrictions were in place, she went out of her way to support the care of women, personally delivering prescriptions to women isolating at home.

"The team are shocked and saddened, and she will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with family and friends at this very sad time."

Two men, aged 51 and 56, have been arrested on suspicion of two counts of murder, two of rape and arson with intent to endanger life.

A post-mortem examination on Dr Sacharvi showed she died from pressure to her neck and that she was also assaulted.

The cause of badly burnt Vian’s death has yet to be determined.
