Rurik Jutting murders: Father of victim wants daughter's body returned

Hong Kong

The father of one of the women found murdered in the Hong Kong flat of a British banker has said he was left stunned by news of her brutal death.

'I was told she was killed, mutilated and packaged into a suitcase. What can you do - this is fate,' Ahmad Kaliman told BBC Indonesian.

BBC News reports that Sumarti Ningsih, 23, was one of two Indonesian women found dead in the flat of Rurik Jutting.

On Monday he was remanded in custody after being charged with their murders.

Some reports suggest the women were sex workers at the time of their death, but at least one of them is believed to have earlier worked as a domestic helper in Hong Kong.

From his village in central Java, Kaliman told BBC Indonesian he believed the death penalty should be handed down to her killer and called for her body to be returned to the family.

'I ask the government of Indonesia to help me return my daughter to me. She was an Indonesian citizen. Please help return her body as soon as possible.'
