This afternoon, the Directeur des poursuites criminelles et pénales (DPCP) filed charges of first degree murder and assault against Kamaljit Arora, the day following a family tragedy that broke out on Lauzon Street, in Sainte-Dorothée.
While we initially feared for health, the 46-year-old man and father of the two children who died yesterday, was to appear for the first time in the Court of Quebec today.
For what’s about the accusation of assault, it would have been inflicted on the mother of the children, a 45-year-old woman, who was subsequently transported for a severe nervous shock.
Let’s recall that officers from the Service de police de Laval (SPL) have been called to the scene of a possible family tragedy yesterday, before sadly discovering two lifeless children, and proceeding to the arrest of a man also present on the spot.
A call made to 911, shortly before 6 p.m., directed the officers to the scene of that family tragedy, which looks like infanticide, on Lauzon Street.
The children were then transported to a hospital centre, where they were declared dead.
The children, an 11-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl, reportedly died of injuries sustained.
According to some media and details still not yet confirmed by the SPL, the father would have taken the lives of his two children, by drowning.
The police indeed arrested a 46-year-old man following the crime. He was also reportedly transported to a hospital. Once his state of health allowed it, the man met with the investigators.
