Thane: A woman allegedly committed suicide after strangulating her 7-year-old twins in Kharigaon locality of Kalwa as she was reportedly upset over their illness, the police said.

The incident took place between 2 pm and 6 pm yesterday and the bodies were found by the woman's husband when he returned home from work, they said.

He told his neighbours who, in turn, called the police.

"We suspect that the 32-year-old woman strangulated the boys to death and later hanged herself from the ceiling of the house," an official from the Kalwa police station said.

The police recovered a suicide note from the house in which the woman had said she was upset with her children's illness, the official said.

The family was living at the Anand Vihar housing complex in Kalwa.

The bodies were sent to the government hospital for post- mortem, said the police adding that they are investigating the reasons for the extreme step.
