A public funeral service will be held today for little Sanaya Sahib who will be farewelled one week after she was originally reported missing.
Less than 24 hours after her mother, Sofina Nikat, told police she had been taken from her pram in Olympic Park in Heidelberg West, the 14-month-old’s body was found in the Darebin Creek.
Ms Nikat was charged with her daughter’s murder on Tuesday.
The funeral service is open to the public from 10.45am on Saturday at Bunurong Memorial Park, followed by a private, family-only burial.
A vigil and balloon releasing ceremony was held for Sanaya on Friday, with over 200 people in attendance.
