More than a month after a 28-year-old woman murdered her two sons and ended her life, the Kasarvadavli police arrested her husband and father-in-law for abetment of suicide. The two were arrested from Thane court while trying to seek anticipatory bail, said the police.

The incident took place on September 1 in a residential complex along Ghodbunder Road. The woman first hanged her two sons, aged 4 and 5, and then committed suicide. She also left a suicide note, blaming her husband and in-laws for physically and mentally assaulting her for past many years. She had complained against her husband and in-laws in Kutch police station several times and was also fighting a custody battle for her two sons with her in-laws.

Kishore Khairnar, senior police officer of Kasarvadavli police station, said, “The woman’s in-laws live in Gujarat. We had sent two teams to Gujarat to trace her husband and father-in-law, whom she had blamed in the suicide note. The two were absconding. On Tuesday, the two came to Thane court to seek anticipatory bail.”

The police got a tip-off and arrested them. The two had been allegedly harassing the woman since 2017. Khairnar said the two were arrested for abetment and remanded in police custody till October 11.
