Some netizens have speculated on the circumstances leading to the murder of 16-year-old student Shameera Basha.

Some online comments raised the question of whether the family's domestic helper, Tuti Aeliyah, 28, had been mistreated by her employers.

Tuti was charged with murder on Friday.

Those close to the family have come out to defend them, describing them as nice and kind.

A cousin who was close to Shameera tweeted: "For the last time, her family did not treat the maid badly. The maid is depressed cos of her hometown problems. Stop it about the death."

A close family friend said: "The parents are inconsolable. The mum was crying non-stop, and the dad's head was buried in his hands."
