Woman kills her 2 kids, ends life by jumping into river

Rajamahendravaram (AP), Apr 22 (PTI) A 20-year old woman today allegedly committed suicide by jumping into a nearby river along with her two minor children, police said.

According to Kovvur Town police Sub-Inspector Ramesh, the woman’s husband, employed in a cloth merchant shop, was informed about the incident and helped identify the bodies.

The woman had written to her father-in-law before taking the decision to end her life and that of her children, the Sub-Inspector added.
