A mother and son reportedly committed suicide by hanging on Monday afternoon. Neighbours said the youngest son of the family came back from school and saw his mother and brother hanging. He called others who then informed the police.

According to SP (City),Anant Dev,Satishwari Devi (40) and Mohit (20) committed suicide after fighting over stale food. “Ramesh Singh,Mohit’s father,received a call around 1 pm about the quarrel at home. Mihit complained to his father that his mother had served him stale food. The father told him to cook his own food,” said Dev.

Singh works in a transport company in Delhi. Mohit was studying to be an flight steward in Delhi.

The body was found by Mohit’s younger brother Ankit when he returned home from school. “Neighbours said the mother and son fought often. We’re yet to record the statement of Ankit as he is in a state of shock. Only then will we be able to learn about the cause of the deaths,” said R K Gautam,the circle officer.
