Mother, son commit suicide in GhaziabadMarch 9th, 2009 - 10:41 pm ICT by IANS
Ghaziabad, March 9 (IANS) A 20-year-old man and his mother committed suicide here Monday after they quarrelled over a trivial matter, the police said.
Mohit Singh and Satishwari Devi, 40, hanged themselves from a ceiling fan in their Vijay Nagar home here Monday. Their bodies were found when Mohit Singh’s younger brother Ankit Singh, 16, returned from school around 3 p.m., the police said.
“Mohit Singh, who was pursuing a flight steward course from an institute in Delhi quarrelled with his mother because she served him stale rotis. Mohit Singh then rung up his father Ramesh Singh, who was out of town and complained to him,” R.K. Vashishth, station officer Vijay Nagar police station, said.
“Ramesh Singh pacified his wife and son, but soon afterwards, Mohit Singh went into his room and hung himself with a duppata. When Devi found her son hanging, she untied him and then hung herself with the same duppata,” Vashishth said, explaining the sequence of events.
When Ankit Singh returned and found his mother and brother dead, he fainted. He later called the neighbours, who informed the police.
“We are looking into the matter. The suicides were over a trivial matter. Further investigation is on,” Superintendent of Police (City) Anant Dev said.
