A 20-YEAR-OLD woman committed suicide by consuming poison along with her 18-year-old sister. The latter’s condition was stated to be critical at the time of filing the report. The incident took place at Deen Dayal Puram under Naubasta police station on Saturday night.
According to information, the two sisters were admonished by their father Ram Kishan, a retired railway employee, when the two teased their elder sister, Rekha, who is reportedly mentally challenged and was married in Sarsaul. Rekha was living with her parents.
An annoyed Ram Kishan admonished his daughters Sunita (18) and Sangeeta (20) not to do so in future. Late in the evening on the same night, Sunita and Sangeeta consumed poison when rest of the family members were not in the house.
When the family members returned, the two girls were lying unconscious on the floor. Ram Kishan took Sangeeta to a private hospital in the area where she was declared brought dead by the doctors. Sunita was taken to LLR Hospital, where till the filing of reports, she was not declared being out of danger.
Police is probing the incident in several dimensions. Some sources in police said that Ram Kishan had fixed Sunita’s marriage with the promise to her would-be in-laws to have a bangle shop opened for his son-in-law.
Sources said since Sangeeta heard her father was more inclined towards Sunita’s future, the latter had a bitter altercation with her sister and following it, the two consumed poison.
The family’s silence following the incident further queers the pitch for the police.
