31-year-old woman arrested for suspected murder of her father in Sengkang

Ms Lalitha, 45, who lives in a next-door unit, said a couple and their daughter resided in the flat which police were investigating.

About two months ago, the mother died, said Ms Lalitha, who saw the daughter weeping at the funeral. It was the daughter who was led away by the police, she said.

“There was no handcuffs on her but her hands were like that,” she said, putting her hands behind her back to show what happened. 

“Then they just led her out. My mother looked at the daughter and asked ‘What happened?’ The daughter just shook her head and walked.”

Other neighbours said the daughter was very quiet and kept to herself. Another neighbour, Ms Shidah, said that the mother was friendlier and would chat with her.
