PATIALA: A 30-year-old woman’s body was found hanging from a ceiling fan in her room at her in-laws house, while her two daughters, aged two and four, were found dead under mysterious circumstances on a bed in the same room in a village of Sangrur district on Monday evening.
Parents of Baljit Kaur, 30, claimed that her in-laws and husband had been unhappy over the birth of daughters and they wanted a son.
“It seems the woman hanged herself from the ceiling fan, but the cause of death of both minor girls could not be ascertained. All three bodies will undergo the postmortem at the civil hospital and the reports are awaited. We have also recovered a suicide note and its authenticity is under examination. The required evidence from the spot were collected and further investigation is underway,” said Sangrur (rural) DSP Satpal Sharma.
