Mahbubnagar: A housewife, along with her two children, committed suicide by drowning in a well in Chandranpalli village under Koilkonda mandal in the district on Saturday night.
The pathetic incident came to light on Sunday. The villagers suspect that the housewife might have resorted to the extreme step on Saturday night. According to the villagers, Vasantha, 28, was the second wife of Krishnaiah. They have two children — five-year old Anjalaiah and two-year old Manasa. They said that the couple used to quarrel frequently on some issue or other.
The villagers said that the entire village celebrated a festival and the couple quarreled again on some issue. With this, Vasantha left her house with her two children in a huff. Krishnaiah and others took the incident lightly thinking that she would return home. But the bodies of Vasantha and her children were found floating in a well on Sunday morning.
The local police have registered a case and taken up investigation. (NSS)
