Two Women, 10-Year-Old Ends Life After Family Member Marries Against Their Wish

Two women and a 10-year-old girl allegedly killed themselves after one of their family members married against their wish, authorities said.

The deceased, identified as 30-year-old Saraswathi, 34-year-old Amutha, and the child, Dhananya allegedly committed suicide at their home in Madathupalayam village near Perunthurai in Erode district of Tamil Nadu, India on Monday night, Nov.15. 

According to the police, the now-deceased women were upset over Amutha’s sister, Selvi’s decision to marry the love of her life.

The family was reportedly against Sellvi’s decision to marry the man she loved.

On Monday, Selvi reportedly informed her family that she will marry him against their will.

An argument broke out between Selvi and her family members after which she walked out of the house, local media reported.

“On Monday, Selvi had stepped out of the house and married her lover today (Tuesday). The family was reportedly frustrated. Saraswathi’s husband had passed away many years ago and Amutha had separated from her husband and had been staying at her mother’s residence. The women hanged themselves late Monday night. The neighbors found the house door locked since last night and found it unusual as Dhananya usually goes to school in the morning. The neighbors tried to check on the family and knocked on the door and after no response, they informed us and we reached the spot around 9:30 am. We found Saraswathi hanging from the ceiling in one room and Amutha alongside her daughter in another room. The bodies were recovered and sent to a government hospital in Erode. The post-mortem was completed and the body was handed over to the family,” an investigation officer told the Indian Express.

An investigation is underway, police said.

In another incident, a 14-year-old boy allegedly ended his life after losing money in online games.

The deceased teen, identified as Akash, was found dead in a pond near Irinjalakuda in Thrissur, Kerala, India. On Wednesday, Nov. 17.

The teen boy was reported missing on Tuesday, police said.

 On Wednesday, the investigators stumbled upon a pair of slippers and also found a bicycle near a pond, which was identified to be of the missing teen.

Diving experts assisted the search operation and later in the day, the investigators found and recovered the boy’s body from the muddy pond.

The police believe that Akash’s father had reprimanded the boy for squandering money on online games like “Free Fire.” 
Upset over the scoldings, the boy resorted to the extreme step, police said.

However, some reports alleged that the boy had lost a lot of money in the game and chose to end his life fearing reprehension from his parents.

A further probe is underway, police said.
