Mother attempts suicide, two minors lose life
Two minors aged four and two lost their lives at Pimpli in Baramati during the wee hours on Saturday when they’d gone to find their mother who was attempted suicide near a well.
The deceased identified as Divya Suryavanshi (4) and Shaurya Suryavanshi (2) were looking inside the well where their mother Anjali had attempted suicide. They were followed by their father Atul who also came to their rescue but by that time the minors had died, Baramati police said.
According to the police, there was a fight between Anjali and her husband after which she rushed out of the house and went towards the well and jumped into it. She was followed by the two kids and later by her husband but it was too late as the two lives had been lost at that time, police said.
Atul however managed to pull her out of the well but the two children could not be saved.
Police station in charge Nagdev Shinde said that an accidental death related case has been lodged.
The kids were taken out of water and brought to Silver Jubilee hospital where the post mortem was conducted and their bodies were handed over to the family for last rites.
