Puttur, Mar 15, 2015: In a tragic incident, a young housewife allegedly committed suicide after poisoning her two little daughters at Bellichadavu in Eshwaramangala of Nettanigemudnur village of Puttur taluk on March 14, Saturday. If the woman died at the hospital later, the condition of the kids who are admitted to Wenlock Hospital is said to be critical.
The deceased woman is Shreemathi (29). It is learnt she had consumed poison after feeding some toxic substance to her daughters. Though Shreemathi was rushed to the hospital along with her kids, her life could not be saved while the kids are battling for life.
The motive behind her extreme step is however not clear. Shreemathi’s husband Rajesh who hails from Moodigere and works in Hassan, visits Shreemathi’s parental house at Eshwaramangala once a week. It is learnt, ever since her marriage seven years ago, Shreemathi was staying with her parents.
Shreemathi’s mother who was an Anganavadi assistant was not at home when she committed suicide in a shed near her house. Her brother who worked abroad had returned home just a week ago.
