Shivpuri (MP): A woman allegedly committed suicide by jumping into a well along with her two minor children at Nayagaon village in the district, apparently following harassment by her husband, police said on Monday.
The woman, identified as Bhuri Khangar (25), jumped into the well along with her son Neetu (03) and daughter Savita (08) yesterday.
She took her children to a nearby pond for washing clothes and other daily chores yesterday. But when they did not return home till evening, her husband, a labourer, got suspicious and started looking for them, Bairad police station in-charge Dharmendra Singh said.
The husband, along with some other villagers, then went to the well and found her slippers and clothes lying near it.
The villagers then sneaked into the well and found the body of one of the children floating.
Police fished out all the three bodies this morning.
The woman's brother alleged that her husband used to beat them up in inebriated condition and probably because of this reason she took the extreme step.
Police said it appears to be a case of suicide.
