In a grisly discovery, a young Sikh woman and three infants have been found dead under mysterious circumstances in an apartment at Calagry city in the Alberta province of Canada.
The police was called on Sunday after getting no response from Harsimrat Kahlon, 27, whom they found dead in her basement suite, Calgary Herald reported. The police earlier said Kahlon’s death was not suspicious.
However, they later found the bodies of three infants in the house. It is not known whether they were her kids. Some reports said the bodies were wrapped in plastic.
The investigators yesterday said they did not believe Kahlon was killed – though they were trying to determine exactly how she died. However, the police is suspicious about the deaths of the three infants.
“Their deaths are definitely considered suspicious,” duty inspector Rob Williams said. The police has not revealed the children’s ages or genders, or whether Kahlon is the mother of any of the children.
“No further details about this case will be released until tests are completed and the investigation progresses,” Williams said.
The woman was born in India and moved to Winnipeg when she was about 10 years old. Her parents stayed in India, so Kahlon was raised by an aunt and uncle, Param Sandhu, a friend of the victim said.
Sandhu said she didn’t know whether her friend was recently pregnant, but had heard rumours she was.
Kahlon and her boyfriend, whom friends identified as Harnek Mahal, had been together for about eight years and were to be married in India at the end of this year, Sandhu said. — PTI
