Bhawanipatna: A woman slashed throats of her two minor sons and then committed suicide over her husband’s infidelity at Singhajharana village under Bhawanipatna Sadar Police limits. The bodies were discovered on Monday morning.
One Bimala Majhi’s decapicated corpse was discovered at nearby railway tracks by the locals. The bloodied bodies of her sons Rabindra Majhi (4) and Dushmanta Majhi (6) with their necks slashed were found at their home.
Bimala’s husband Linga Majhi had reportedly married another woman and had been living with her in Bhawanipatna. Bimala had been grieving over her unfortunate situation. She had even filed a complaint regarding the same with Sadar Police.
The Kalandhi district celebrated ‘Nuakhai’ yesterday and Bimala had been hoping that Linga would be with her and their kids to celebrate the festival but in vain, sources revealed. Locals believe that Bimala might have done this drastic act frustrated over the fact that Linga chose his new family over her and her kids.
Bhawanipatna Sadar Police arrived on the spot and have taken the bodies for autopsy. An investigation has been initiated.
