Hyderabad: Alleging harassment by her husband, a private school teacher from Chilkalguda committed suicide after poisoning her two sons. The woman died at a hospital and her younger son is stated to be critical, while another child is said to be out of danger, said the police.
The victim, V. Anjali, 28, was working as a teacher at a private school near her house in Parsigutta. She married one V. Prasad, a carpenter, about 11 years ago, at the age of 17. Prasad who was addicted to liquor was harassing Anjali physically for a long time, police said.
In June, Anjali lodged a complaint at the women’s police station in Begumpet against her husband alleging domestic violence. The couple had attended a counselling session and on Tuesday, the second session was scheduled.
Prasad who has been living separately since the complaint attended the counselling, but Anjali told him that she has some work at the school and would not visit the police station. At about noon, she consumed poison and administered it to her two sons.
Chilkalguda sub-inspector A. Varunkanth Reddy said “The elder boy vomited immediately and alerted the house owner, who rushed the children to a hospital. The younger kid’s condition is critical and he was sent to Gandhi Hospital. Their mother Anjali died at Gandhi Hospital.”
The SI said that Anjali left a note alleging harassment by her husband as a reason for her to take the extreme step. A case has been registered against Prasad on the charges of abetment to suicide and search is on to nab him. The elder child is with his maternal grandparents, said Mr Reddy....
