Fiji Sun - - EXPLAINER - WAISEA NASOKIA Edited by Ivamere Nataro

Fifty-seven-year-old Aruna Devi couldn’t find words fit to de­scribe the gruesome pass­ing of her younger sis­ter dur­ing her funeral at Son­aisali, Nadi on Mon­day.

Peo­ple from all walks of life came in num­bers to farewell a mother, sis­ter and a busi­ness­woman, Su­nita Devi, who died last Wed­nes­day morn­ing.

She was al­legedly stabbed mul­ti­ple times with a cane knife by her 53-year-old de facto part­ner. Ms Aruna Devi said her fam­ily was still in shock with the tragic in­ci­dent.

“Ev­ery­day my sis­ter would have her bath but today, I bathed her,” she said.

“My sis­ter is no longer today with us and will be missed.”

The late Ms Devi is sur­vived by her 14-year-old daugh­ter, who was also al­legedly stabbed and is re­cov­er­ing at the Lau­toka Hospi­tal ICU ward.

The mat­ter is be­fore court.
