Two sisters who were married in a single family allegedly strangled to death their children and later committed suicide themselves in Shashtrinagar area of the city on Saturday with police suspecting domestic quarrel as the reason of their extreme step.
The Gandhigram police said that Shital Ahisyani (30) and her younger sister Sonal Ashiyani allegedly committed suicide by hanging themselves from ceiling of their home with the help of two different saris at around 12 pm.
“Before committing suicide, the two sisters strangled their daughter Viral (3) and son Mit respectively to death,” in-charge police inspector of Gandhigram, RR Solanki said.
All the four were rushed to hospitals but were declared dead on arrival.
The police said that while Shital was married to Nitin Ashiyani, Sonal was wife of Manhar. “Nitin and Manhar are siblings and are associated with brick kiln industry. We suspect that domestic quarrel is responsible for the mass suicide,” Solanki further said.
