6th June 2023 – (Hong Kong) On 6th June a heartbreaking triple homicide occurred in Kweilin Street, Sham Shui Po. The 29-year-old Indian woman who was arrested in connection to the case complained of feeling unwell and was taken to Caritas Medical Centre for treatment, accompanied by police officers.

Tthe police laid a holding charge against a 29-year-old non-ethnic Chinese woman with three counts of murder today. The charges are in connection with a tragic incident that occurred in Sham Shui Po, where three non-ethnic Chinese girls aged 2, 4, and 5 years old lost their lives.

The woman was arrested yesteday, with the police suspecting her involvement in the incident. The authorities have not released any further information regarding the suspect or the motive behind the crime.

The case will be mentioned at Kowloon City Magistrates’ Courts tomorrow, where the suspect will appear before a judge. The legal process will begin as the authorities work to determine the facts surrounding the incident and bring closure to the families of the victims.

According to reports, the woman may have become emotionally unstable after giving birth to a daughter and experiencing marital difficulties that led to her separation from her husband. Some speculate that she did not want her three daughters to be taken care of by anyone else and thus resorted to the extreme act of murdering them.

After committing the crime, the woman reportedly called her mother, who lives in Kam TinYuen Long, and confessed to “killing people.” Her mother then contacted the police, expressing concern that her daughter was experiencing a medical emergency and had a history of violence, and that the three children at the Kweilin Street residence may be in danger.

After an investigation, the woman was arrested on suspicion of murder, and her head was covered with a black cloth as she was taken into custody for further questioning.

The scene of the triple homicide, which occurred in a subdivided flat at unit 5, 115 Kweilin Street, remains sealed off by police officers as of the morning of 6th June. Local residents have brought food, drinks, and flowers to pay tribute to the three young victims outside the flat, while others have placed flowers in the building’s stairwell in mourning. The flat was unsealed in the afternoon, revealing the belongings of the victims, including backpacks, handbags, shoes, and other items.

One female resident reported encountering the Indian woman and her daughters in the building’s stairwell, where they exchanged greetings but did not speak further. She expressed shock and sadness at the tragic incident and concern for other residents who may also be struggling to care for young children.

Community organisations have also posted hotlines for emotional support and family assistance at the scene for those in need.
