Prabha’s body released to family, police yet to find killer

Prabha’s body released to family, police yet to find killer
41-year-old Prabha Arun Kumar's body was released to her family on Wednesday and would be taken to her hometown in Mangalore for last rites, Prabha's housemate said.

"He (her husband) was still in shock, he just said if he could get her stuff. He mentioned she always wanted to be buried where she was born in Mangalore," The Daily Telegraph quoted her saying.

Police said they were still searching for the killer and trying to establish a motive behind the attack.

"I can say at this point in time, we are no closer to identifying a motive for this senseless attack," Homicide Squad Commander Detective Superintendent Michael Willing said.

Police said that it does not appear that Prabha was sexually assaulted or robbed or racially attacked.

They have interviewed several people since the attack on Saturday. Willing said from CCTV footage police had reviewed, they don't think they can identify anyone who was following Prabha. Police have also released the CCTV footage of Prabha walking from the Parramatta train station just before she was fatally stabbed and appealed to people for information to crack the baffling case.

Meanwhile, Prabha's husband Arun Kumar and her brother Shankar Shetty on Thursday sought justice for her.

Kumar, who had flown in from India following the brutal murder, said: "I know that we can't bring her back but I want, whoever killed my wife, to be brought to justice." Shetty made a personal appeal to his sister's killer to surrender.

Arun had flown in from India following the brutal murder of his wife, who was an IT professional. He pleaded for justice and said “I know that we can’t bring her back but I want, whoever killed my wife, to be brought to justice.” “I’m her husband and father of a young girl, who has lost a beloved mother,” he said, and also appealed to people to help find the culprit, if they have any information on him. Meanwhile, detectives are still searching for the killer and trying to establish a motive in the attack. They said that it does not appear that Prabha was sexually assaulted or robbed or racially attacked.
