Karimnagar: A woman belonging to Burgupalli village in Gangadhar mandal of Karimnagar district allegedly tried to kill her two children, husband and father-in-law by feeding them sweet payasam laced with poison before eloping with her boyfriend.
The attempt took place on Friday but came to light on Saturday after the woman’s mother-in-law lodged a complaint with the police.
According to assistant sub-inspector Vivek, Uma was married to Vilasagaram Anjaiah of Burgupalli. She was having an extramarital affair with Thirupathi of the same village. To elope with Thirupathi, she fed poison-laced sweet payasam to her children – Sidhartha (11) and Manvitha (4), as well as husband Anjaiah and father-in-law Rajesham on Friday night. After they fell unconscious, Uma eloped with her boyfriend.
On Friday morning, Anjaiah’s mother Laxmi, who did not consume the payasam, noticed her family members in an unconscious state. She immediately took the help of neighbours and shifted the four unconscious to the Karimnagar main hospital. Doctors say the condition of four-year-old Manvitha is critical while the remaining three are recovering. ASI Vivek said a case has been registered against Uma and Thirupathi, following a complaint lodged by mother-in-law Laxmi....
