A man in his 30s has been arrested in connection with the deaths of 37-year-old Seema Banu and her two children Asfira Syed and Faizan Syed in Dublin last month.
Their bodies were discovered in the house in Llewellyn Court in Ballinteer on 28th October.
The children were found to have been strangled, while their mother died from a ligature around her neck, post-mortem examinations found.
The man was arrested this morning, and is currently being detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984 at Dundrum Garda Station.
Today’s arrest is the first to be made in connection with the killings.
