SHILLONG, Nov 7 - A 21-year-old woman allegedly killed her three children by slitting their throats before ending her own life by stabbing herself in Meghalaya�s North Garo Hills district.
Bodies of Mimi Samchi K Sangma and her children were found in the bedroom of their residence in Lower Tombuma area by her husband on Tuesday evening on his return from Assam.
�It appears that she slit the throats of her children aged 5 years, 2 years and 1 year killing them on the spot. She then killed herself by stabbing herself in the neck with a khukuri (a curved knife),� a senior district police officer said.
The woman�s husband, who is a daily wage labourer, other relatives and neighbours were being questioned. They claimed that she had been suffering from a mental illness for quite a long time and that has been aggravated in the past three months, the officer said. � PTI
