Aurangabad: A 30-year-old woman allegedly poisoned to death her three daughters before committing suicide here, police said today.
Radha Tribhavan poisoned her daughters Nandini (8), Komal (5) and Pranjal (2) and then hanged herself from the ceiling of their house in Rahulnagar area of the city, Inspector Kailash Prajapati of Satara Police Station said.
The incident, which apparently took place last night, came to light this morning after some of the neighbours suspected something amiss and reported the matter to police, the officer said.
Prima facie, Radha had a quarrel with her in-laws before she took the extreme step, police said.
All the four bodies were taken to a government hospital for autopsy where Radha’s kin and her in-laws had a clash, following which police had to intervene, he said.
The cause which triggered Radha to take the extreme step is being ascertained, police said, adding a case under relevant sections of IPC is registered.
