Warangal: Depressed that their son and daughter-in-law were not taking care of them, an elderly couple from Elekeshwaram in Mahdevpur mandal of Jayashankar Bhupal-pally district, committed suicide on Friday. Rallabandi Salaiah, 76, and his wife Radhamma, 66, did not want to be a burden on their son and consumed pesticide at their residence. The couple had three daughters – Sarojana, Ammakka and Thirupathamma – and one son Satyam.
Villagers said Satyam and his wife used to have frequent arguments with the couple, making them sad and angry. Satyam had an argument with his parents on Thursday. The couple shared their grief with the villagers and said they did not wish to live with them any longer.
