Mother kills disabled children, commits suicide

D.N.I.S. News Network -In a shocking incident, a 36-year-old woman drove herself and her two mentally disabled children to death at Paud near Pune. What initially seemed to be an accident, later proved to be a suicide, with three suicide notes left by the young mother Neha addressed to her husband, brother-in-law and her mother, throwing light on the incident.

Police informed that in the notes, Neha had urged her mother, husband and brother-in-law to forgive her drastic step saying she had failed to take proper care of the two children.

What needs to be probed is the actual reason behind the woman killing herself and both her mentally disabled children. The fact that she drove herself to death in an Opel Corsa suggests that she was from a well to do family. And yet, she had to take this very extreme step.
