Nilambur: In a shocking incident, a woman and her three children were found hanging inside their house here on Sunday. The incident took place at Njettikulam in Pothukal panchayat here on Sunday around 11 am.
Bhoodanam native Bineesh Sreedharan’s wife Rahna (35), his sons Adithyan (12), Ananthu (11) and Arjun (8) were found hanging on the veranda of their rented house. Rahna’s husband Bineesh was out in Kannur for rubber tapping work. He visited his family last on October 29 and returned on November 3.
The family celebrated the birthday of the two kids together when Bineesh arrived home.
According to reports, Bineesh phoned Rahna on Sunday morning. As she did not pick up the call, Binesh contacted their neighbour and asked them to check on her. The mother and kids were found hanging on the veranda when the neighbours reached the house.
With the help of police, the neighbours broke open the house through the back door. The four were immediately rushed to Nilambur district hospital. But they were declared brought dead.
It is assumed that Rahna committed suicide by hanging herself after killing the children.
The bodies are kept at the mortuary of Nilambur district hospital. After obtaining the COVID test results on Monday, police will complete the inquest formalities and take the bodies to Manjeri medical college for post-mortem.
It is reported that the family shifted to the rented house at Njettikkulam six months back.
