Triple murder inquiry launched

A MOTHER and her two daughters found murdered in their home have been named by police today.

The bodies of 26-year-old Juli Begum and her two daughters, 6 –year-old Thanha Khanum and 5-year-old Anika Khanum, were found in the bedroom of their home in East Ham, east London, on Wednesday.

Police officers made the gruesome discovery after they were called by concerned neighbours and family members who hadn’t heard from Ms Begum for some time.

Post mortems carried out on the trio revealed 6-year-old Anika had been strangled while her younger sister suffered a head injury.

It is not yet known how Mrs Begum died.

Launching a triple murder inquiry, officers confirmed there were no signs of forced entry to the property.

It is believed Mrs Begum and her daughters could have been dead for nine days after one neighbour revealed Mrs Begum’s sister visited him on Tuesday saying she had not heard from her sister for nine days.
