Detective Inspector Louise Caveen, from the Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Crime Command, expressed the devastating impact of the incident: “One young woman lost her life, and another will likely never recover from the emotional scars, even when the physical ones have faded. It is right that Lourenco De Morais will now receive treatment, but nothing will bring Tejaswini back to her family. Our thoughts remain with them.”
