Mother commits suicide after hanging her two sons
Sep 12, 2018-
A young mother and her five-year-old son died in an apparent murder-suicide at Budhiganga Rural Municipality in Morang district on Tuesday.
Superintendent of Police Manoj Kumar KC said 29-year-old Kabita Yadav and her youngest son Aman died by hanging. Her eldest child, 10-year-old Nishan, survived when his rope snapped.
The boy told police that his mother hung Aman while the latter was still asleep, before proceeding to hang him and herself.
SP KC said when Nishan protested his mother reportedly hit him and demanded that he remain quiet.
Kabita’s husband Amarlal Yadav had died two years ago. Ever since, she had been raising her two sons on her own.
What led Kabita to commit the crime is a matter of investigation.
Police are searching for Ramdev Jha of Forbesganj, India, for questioning after learning that he had recently visited the family and lived with them for a few days.
