POLICE are investigating whether the stabbing death of a mother as she walked home from a Sydney train station last year was organised by someone in India.

Prabha Kumar, 41, was fatally stabbed in the neck as she was speaking to her husband on her mobile phone while walking home near Parramatta Railway station in March 2015.

Detectives have combed through details of Mrs Kumar’s personal life, including speaking with her relatives in India, to find clues that would lead them to her killer.

They are now looking at the possibility the murder was organised by someone known to her in India, Fairfax reports.

“We have considered the possibility that an offender had (helped commit or been involved with) this crime outside of Australia,” Detective Sergeant Ritchie Sim told Fairfax Media.

Detectives, however, believe the 41-year-old did not know the person who killed her.

Mrs Kumar, an Indian national and mother of a nine-year-old daughter, was killed as she walked home after finishing her work at an IT firm on March 7.

Grainy CCTV vision released by police shows her speaking on her mobile to her husband, Arun, as she walked through Parramatta train station.

Police said Mrs Kumar was stabbed in the throat she headed through Parramatta Park towards her Westmead home about 8.30pm.

She was barely 400 metres from her house when she was attacked.

Mrs Kumar’s funeral was held in her hometown of Amtoor, Bantwal, about 40km from Mangalore city, in India.

Police have already spoken to nearly 2000 people as part of their inquiry and examined thousands of hours of CCTV footage from the area where she was killed.
