Tripura woman poisons son, daughter before killing self

By The Assam Tribune

AGARTALA, March 14 - A 25-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself from the ceiling of her house after poisoning her son and daughter, following a fight with her husband, the Tripura Police said today.

The incident happened on Friday at Samukcherra, a remote tribal hamlet in Gomati district, about 70 km from here.

The woman, identified as Jamuna Debbarma, had a fight with her husband when he went home for lunch.

It is suspected that after her husband, who is a labourer, had left for work, she killed her seven-year-old daughter and four-year-old son before committing suicide, said Dhruba Nath, Sub-Divisional Police Officer of Udaipur.

The police are yet to get the post-mortem report, he said, adding that investigation is on.

�As the house is on a hilltop, which is an isolated place, no one was available as a witness,� the officer said.

Her husband has been detained for interrogation, Nath said. � PTI
