Woman hangs two kids, herself

A 26-year-old woman hanged her two children to death and committed suicide at her residence at Ijur in Ramanagaram district on Wednesday.

The deceased are Rekha, a native of Magadi, and her children Spoorthi, 6, and son Pritham, 4. Rekha was married to Lakshman, a painter, for seven years now.

On Wednesday morning, after Lakshman left for work, the woman locked the door, hanged the children from the ceiling and hanged herself to death.

The incident came to light when Lakshman returned home in the afternoon and found the door locked from inside. He peeped through the window and found the three of them hanging. Lakshman alerted his neighbours, who broke open the door and found all the three dead. They informed the police, who shifted the bodies for post-mortem.

They found a death note written by Rekha, which said that she was not on good terms with her husband as he used to suspect that she had an extramarital affair.

Rekha did not want her children to suffer after her death, so she killed them, the letter said.
