A HDB flat in Tampines has been sectioned off by police where it is believed that a murder had taken place earlier today.
Access to the 10th floor of Blk 856B on Tampinese St 82 has been restricted by police.
A neighbour had indicated that she had heard screams from the flat at around noon where a family of 4 lived with a maid.
It appears that one of the daughters of the family, aged 16, was killed by the family's maid.
Police said in a statement that they received a call at 12.57pm for assistance at 856B Tampines Street 82.
“Upon arrival, a 16-year-old was lying motionless in the said unit and was pronounced dead by paramedics,” said the police statement.
Police have classified the case as murder, and investigations are ongoing.
