19 August 2016 -- People lined up expressing sympathy at airports, towns and villages that the dead body of Piang Ngaih Don passed through as it was carried all the way from Singapore to her native village, Chin State in Burma.

Last Monday, her body arrived in Dimpi village, Tedim township. This was made possible after brother Pau Sian Mung had flown to Singapore, where she was murdered, and got required procedures and documents done with the help of various organizations and individuals.

Piang Ngaih Don, 24, was found dead in a ninth-floor flat on 26 July in Singapore where she worked as a domestic helper to a family. Prema S Naraynasamy, 58, and her daughter Gaiyathiri Murugaiyan, 36, as well as Kevin Chelvam, a police staff sergeant and Gaiyathir's husband, were accused of killing their housemaid.

According to media reports, Piang Ngaih Don was believed to have been abused as her body was found with bruises.
