Delhi: Woman kills 3-year-old daughter, slits son’s throat
Yet another heartwarming incident came to light in Delhi, a 30-year-old woman allegedly slit throats of her two children before attempting to suicide due to marital discord. Following the murder, police were informed around 10:50 am. The incident took place in Delhi’s Hauz Rani area on Saturday.
The woman is identified as Mohsina, rushed her two children to the nearby hospital with the help of her family and neighbours, where her three-year-old daughter passed away. The woman and her one-and-a-half-year-old son are said to be in a critical condition.
According to police, the woman had an argument with her husband on Friday night about him coming home late and drunk, following which he went to his parents’ home in an opposite building.
He stayed there while his mother came to Mohsina’s house. Following morning, Mohsina’s mother-in-law came back to her house leaving her with the children, the official said. Adding that it was during this time that Mohsina allegedly attacked her children and also tried to commit suicide.
According to reports, Mohsina’s father is an assistant sub-inspector with the Delhi Police while her husband sells holiday packages at a mall in Saket.
Her family claimed that she was in an unhappy marriage and the incident was triggered due to it. Her in-laws claimed that she would often get upset when her husband returned home late and the couple had fights over it earlier.
“Till the time she is declared fit for the statement, it is difficult to say that she attacked the children and then attempted to kill herself. We have spoken to Mohsina’s family and her in-laws and further probe into the incident is underway,” a senior police officer told news agency PTI.
