A  press conference was organized by the police  to address the  media  on Prabha Arun Kumar’s  stabbing case .

Prabha Arun Kumar, a 41-year-old Indian national, died in hospital after being attacked on a public walkway between Argyle Street, Parramatta, and Amos Street, Westmead, about 9.30pm on Saturday (7 March 2015). She was on phone to her husband Arun  Kumar when she was attacked .

The husband and brother  Prabha joined Detective Superintendent Mick Willing, Commander, Homicide Squad, State Crime Command in addressing the media.

Prabha Kumar’s husband and brother appealed the  killer to come forward while the police is still trying to find out the motive behind the attack.

Arun Kumar, Prabha’s husband while speaking on the occasion said , “I am a husband who has lost his wife and the father of a young girl who has lost her beloved mother. I cannot describe to you the pain I presently feel. My wife was the most caring and beautiful soul”.

“Prabha was planning to buy a little penguin toy and send it to our daughter in India, but now she will never be able to do that. I know that we can’t bring her back but I want whoever killed my gorgeous wife to be brought to justice.”

He also appealed the public to co-operate police in solving the case.

“If you have any information that can help police, please contact Crime Stoppers,” said Arun.

 Shankar Shetty , Prabha’s brother while addressing the media said, “I’m still coming to terms with the fact that I have “lost my much-loved sister.”

“The pain I have felt since my sister’s death has been unimaginable. No one deserves to have any of their family taken away from them in these horrible circumstances.”

“My sister was a loving wife, mother, daughter and sibling. She was loved by many.”

“We don’t want any other family to go through the pain we are going through. Tragically, Prabha will never see her daughter grow up.”

“I appeal to anyone who has any information to contact police. Please help detectives catch whoever killed my sister”.

“And finally I say this to the person who did this; you have taken my sister’s life, please step forward, get help, and get your life back.”

Detective Superintendent Mick Willing said, “ Police had no reason to believe  that the crime was a robbery or racially motivated.  Even autopsy showed no evidence of sexual assault”.

“Still we have no indication as what motivated this heinous crime.”
