Kasargod, Jan 25, 2015: A housewife was found dead in her house along with her three year old daughter at Perla in Badiadka on January 24, Saturday night. Both the bodies were found hanging using a saree and a nylon rope. The suspicion is that the woman named Yamuna (38), wife of Govinda Naik might have first killed her daughter Gayatri before ending her life.
The incident came to light when Govinda Naik who had left for work in the morning, returned at night.
When there was no response despite persisting knocking at the door, a suspicious Govinda broke open the door only to find his wife and child hanging. Neighbours rushed on hearing his screams and informed the police.
The bodies were later taken to the Government Hospital for post-mortem. It has been gathered that the woman was mentally ill and was even undergoing treatment.
Badiadka Police are investigating the case.
