Friday, 11 June 2021 | Staff Reporter | MAHASAMUND

A 45-year-old woman and her five daughters allegedly committed suicide by jumping in front of a moving train apparently after a domestic dispute in Chhattisgarh’s Mahasamund district, the police said on Thursday.

The incident took place on the night of Wednesday and Thursday near a railway crossing between Mahasamund and Belsonda, Mahasamund Superintendent of Police Prafull Kumar Thakur said.

As per preliminary information, Uma Sahu of Bemcha village had a quarrel with her husband.

Upset, the woman along with her daughters Annapurna (18), Yashoda (16), Bhumika (14), Kumkum (12) and Tulsi (10) rushed to the railway tracks and took the extreme step, the officer said.

After being alerted on Thursday morning, a police team sent the bodies for postmortem. No suicide note has been found.

Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel expressed deep grief over the deaths and told the district administration and police to investigate the entire incident and ensure necessary action.
