Sikh woman, three kids found dead in Canadian city

Calgary in Alberta province has the third largest concentration of the Punjabi community in Canada.

In a statement, Calgary police said they were called to a home in the northeast part of the city Monday following reports of a dead woman.

They found the body of 27-year-old Harsimrat Kahlon and three newborns inside the apartment. It is unknown whether they were her kids.

Police said Kahlon's death did not look suspicious, but they were treating the deaths of the three newborns as suspicious. The cause of the deaths would be known only after weeks of testing, they said. No age or gender of the newborns was given.

Police also didn't say when the deaths took place and how long they had been inside the home before they were found.

Quoting the landlord, a local newspaper said Kahlon had rented one of two suites in the home and had lived there for about three years.

She lived with a man, the landlord said, without mentioning whether he was her husband or someone else. According to neighbours, the woman was reportedly pregnant at the time of her death.
