A woman who was depressed with the prolonged illness of her daughter killed her and committed suicide in Delhi.
A 28 year old woman who was upset due to the illness of her daughter killed her daughter and later killed herself in Rajgouri garden of Delhi on Monday.
The woman killed her daughter by strangling her and later killed herself leaving a suicide note. The police recovered the suicide note from the spot.
In the suicide note the woman wrote that she was depressed due to her daughter’s illness and lost hopes of recovery as the girl is being treated for a long time but no improvement was seen. She was taking this extreme step due to this.
The suicide note read “I am committing suicide and I have killed my child. My husband is a nice man and should not be troubled for my death. I want my daughter to be cremated along with me. All my jewellery shall be distributed among the poor. My parents, too, should not be put into trouble.”
The incident came to light when the woman’s husband Pradeep Chaddha returned home from office and found the door locked from inside. He rang the door bell but didn’t get any reply from inside, he then peeped through a window and found his wife Vidhi hanging from a ceiling fan.
Immediately with the help of neighbours he broke the doors and found his two-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Gunoor unconscious on bed. He brought down his wife’s body and made a PCR call.
The bodies are sent to the post mortem and were later handed over to the family. Police registered a case of murder under Section 302 of the IPC and began inquest proceedings under Section 174 of the CRPC to look into the woman’s suicide.
