Vastavam web: The brutal murders of a 37-year-old woman from Karnataka’s Mysuru and her two children have shocked a small suburb in South Dublin. 37-year-old Seema Banu Syed, her 11-year-old daughter Asfira Riza and 6-year-old son Faizan Syed were on Friday found strangled to death in their house in Llywellen Court in Ballinteer suburb of Ireland. Local reports say the family had moved to Ireland less than a year ago. Seema’s husband Sameer Syed was allegedly out of town and had been apprised of the incident, media reports said. The Syeds, who originally hail from Mysuru in Karnataka, had moved from Dubai to Ireland in February this year after Sameer got a job there.
The Irish media reported that the two children were found dead with ligature marks around their neck in one room of the house, while Seema Banu was found strangled in another. The Irish Police said to the local media that the murders occurred over last weekend. The killer allegedly left water running and had caused extensive flood damage. “Gardaí (Irish state police) are continuing to interview witnesses, conduct extensive door-to-door enquiries and gather and examine all relevant CCTV,” the Dundrum Garda said in a statement.
The Irish police had released a photograph of a person believed to have known the Syeds and sent out an appeal to report any information about the family or the person in the picture. The man in the photo appeared at the police station and news reports stated that he is allegedly cooperating with the Investigation. The 30-year-old man has now been put on 24-hour surveillance.
