Woman, 2 daughters commit suicide in TN

Press Trust of India  |  Tirunelveli (TN) 

A 55-year old and her two daughters allegedly committed in the district over suspected love failure involving one of the siblings, police said today.

Seetha, a widow, and her daughters (26) and Padma (20) were found dead in their house at Sankupuram near Vasudevanallur this morning.

Police, who broke open the house door on a complaint from neighbours, said the trio appeared to have consumed poison. Some empty bottles were found by their side.

As per initial investigation, the elder daughter was in love with a youth. But his parents were making arrangement for his marriage with some other girl, they said.

Upset over this, the three women ended their lives. They left a note, police said but declined to reveal its contents.

Further investigation was on.
