Chennai: A family of seven attempted suicide in the private hostel they ran near Sholinganallur along the IT corridor-Rajiv Gandhi Salai on Thursday night. All seven members including four children under the age of 10 years are undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Perungudi, police said.  The family comprising Engaiya (65), an ex serviceman, his daughters Megha, Chinna Vengamma, grand children, Nudheek, Nishita, Naga Chaitanya and one-year-old Sivapriya lived in the working women’s hostel run by the family. Engaiya’s wife died when his eldest daughter was five years old, police said.

The family hails from Andhra Pradesh, police said. On Friday morning, hostel occupants found them lying unconscious on the terrace of the hostel. Semmenchery police rushed to the scene on information and moved them to a private hospital nearby. “A suicide note, written in Telegu was recovered beside them in which they had mentioned that no one is responsible for their suicide,” an investigating officer said.

 

According to Semmenchery inspector, MG Sundar, the family had mixed poison in a soft drink and consumed it. Preliminary investigations have suggested no clear motive behind the suicide attempt, police said adding that they are probing if there is a possible financial constraint. All seven of them are out of danger and are recovering well, police quoted the doctors as saying. Further investigations are on.
