Mother roasts two children alive

india Updated: Dec 28, 2006 20:33 IST

Neighbours of young and vulnerable Nirmala would have never thought that she would burn her kids alive in a fit of rage! But that's what happened when the lady allegedly roasted two of her children.

Nirmala was the resident of Barah Railway colony and the area comes under Alambagh police station in Lucknow.

The cruelty of the murder could be judged from the fact that Nirmala twisted the neck of her one-year-old son Munna before throwing him in flames. She then took out the body from fire and stored it in a refrigerator.

She killed her daughter Shelly in the same way. Petrified after seeing the horrendous act, Nirmala's third kid Divya struggled for her safety and even clawed her mother's face. The girl raised an alarm and was helped by neighbours. Divya saved the life of her sister Shalu who was strangulated by Nirmala.

On hearing the desperate cries of the kids, the neighbours reached Nirmala's place only to find thick smoke emanating from the house. The door was immediately broke open and the child was saved.

After committing the dastardly act, Nirmala wept inconsolably for her children. She explained that she wanted to destroy her family in a fit of rage.

On being interrogated, Nirmala revealed that it was the torturous behaviour of her husband Mansa Ram Chaurasia that provoked her to take this beastly turn.

She further informed that Mansa Ram falsely blamed her for having an illicit relationship and that he beat her very often. Not only this he once stripped her and even hit her.

Nirmala has now been arrested.
