Child watches mother being killed at Sarawak rented room

KUCHING: A five-year-old girl watched her Indonesian mother being killed at her Batu Kawah rented room at about 5.30am on Sunday (May 29).

Padawan OCPD Supt Abang Zainal Abidin Abang Ahmad confirmed the death and said that the case is being investigated.

“Anyone who has information on the case is advised to pass it to the nearest police station,” he said as quoted on a local news portal.

Supt Abang Zainal said the victim is believed to be from West Kalimantan and was staying with her daughter in their rented room.

A source said that the child ran down from the rented room to a coffee shop crying.

The operator of the coffee shop was unsure of what had happened and worried for her safety and then brought her to her mother.

However he was shocked to see the woman lying dead in a pool of blood.
