Daijiworld Media Network – Bantwal (NM)

Bantwal, Jul 11: An ex-serviceman's wife and 6-year-old daughter allegedly committed suicide by jumping into well at Melkar here on Thursday July 11.

The deceased have been identified as Prathima (33), a nurse at AJ Hospital, Mangalore and her daughter Dia (6). They resided near R R Mill, Melkar.

The reason behind taking the extreme step is not yet known.

Speaking to daijiworld, a police source said, "We will talk to the parents of Prathima. Her husband Naveen Kumar, a former military man currently employed as a safety officer in Mangalore, told police that he had questioned Prathima when she was busy messaging on her mobile phone late night and asked her not to continue. Naveen feels that it must have led her to take such a step."

On July 10 night, Prathima and her daughter had slept in one room, while her husband slept in another room. The in-laws too had their own room. During the night, Prathima took her child who was in deep sleep and jumped into their well which is located close to their house, the police added.

The family members came to know only in the morning and immediately called up the police. Fire brigade personnel helped to get the bodies out of the well.

Dia was a student of an English medium school at Panemangalore.  It is learnt that Prathima, who attended to her duties at A J Hospital on Wednesday, was cheerful as usual. Therefore, it appears that Prathima took a decision about committing suicide after reaching home in the evening.

Post mortem of the bodies was conducted at the government hospital here. As the news of this tragedy spread, hundreds of people gathered in front of the mortuary of the government hospital today morning.

A case has been registered in Bantwal police station.

The police can find out details from the mobile phone used by Prathima. Till that time we cannot use our judgement. But something is fishy.

Suicide is not a solution, praying for the family who lost a wife and doughter and good nurse.

When problems are mounting and situation goes out of control suicide is only solution though it is a coward act.
Since she was staying in In-law's house, I am sure, this is a act of Mother in Law injecting poison talks about daughter in Law to her son, that lead daughter in law to commit suicide.
There are many crimes which are causing in-directly on someone’s life where there is no protection and totally impossible to investigate.. for such people only god will punish..

Anyone can explain me while mother was carrying the child at midnight, and the child in deep sleep…what might have thought that innocent child while mother took her in her arms from the bed and jumped into the well? what is the mistake of the child here? I cannot digest this.

Keep away from unwanted political talk. Just feel the agony of innocent child, who is killed by her own mother. What was child's fault? Why adults use their children to settle score against each other. May this little childs soul rest in peace with the almighty.

Mobile phones are good and very helpful if used in a right way. Messaging in mid-night, what for and to whom? Your hubby is in the house. Something fishy.

This is the consequence of misusing the mobile phones.

@Rakesh Shetty You said samething couple of years back before BJP come to rule in Karnataka,but nothing become stable everything messed up in Karnataka,now you say everything will be stable after 2014 election.Do you really mean it or just barking.

If the calls of her mobile are traced, another Yogish /Ananad may be found. But the culprit who ruined her life, will be on the run now and may not be traceable. Definitely this will open the eyes of others who behave like Yogish / Anand.

Very sad news. The innocent child is killed while sleeping peacefully. May God grant them eternal rest. Bollu is suggesting Mr. Ramanath Rai to watch neighbor's well during nights. I think Mr. Bollu should suggest this to jobless groups calling press conference and protecting animals.

Now a days here are the common dialogues in each news from some of the BJP fans....
Earlier in Bantwal..flood appeared..(congress responsible)
Thief Caught..escaped easily..(congress responsible)
Bus lost its control and fall in ditch(congress responsible)
Someone jumped in well(congress responsible)
So final conclusion is we have in a state each house one MP so he can sit their house and take full government resposiblities.

The lady who committed suicide also committed murder by taking the daughter also. This is a cowardly act. Our egos and intolerance to criticism only is leading to suicide in some of us.

Anand listen to the kind advice of Rakesh Shetty. India will become STABLE after 2014 which means he and his GURUS are planning to make Indian citizens COWS and HORSES after 2014...After all STABLE is indeed safe COWS and we are in the last few months of being HUMAN in India....Kingfisher Mallya will register profits after 2014 since he's (un)STABLE KING too...

Mr. Ramanath Rai Please visit each house during night time and make sure that no one will jump into the well. Also order rain not to rain too much. Last year there was no rain in Karnataka, one minister ordered to rain and Karnataka got good raining.

Sad news. But it is disgusting to read why the mother killed own child. What is mistake of the child? Why to drag the innocent sleeping child and kill her for some misunderstanding /sour relation with husband. She is not fit to call as mother.

As everyone one knows one saying "The Friend in need is friend in deed" i think she may have some finance problems so she was seeking some help , Instead of doing this exterme step she should keep her gold in finance and pay the dues,I think the finance was close coz the ill health of the person as i know that he was operated for knees ,sorry for the departed soul,

Young Married couple are becoming notorious - I am repeating again the same fact. MObile in the hands of spouse and busy messaging ... to whom ?? Husband got insecure about excess messaging. Hubby instead of giving massage, he bluntly told wife not to msg. Wife couldnt digest the fact that she can no longer message whole day to dear ones. But why she has to jump to well with sleeping child ?

Can not predict behavior of modern day spouses. Married life, social life, night life, day life - all becoming tough these days.

Mr. Gabbu are you there when she was messaging? You don't have mobile? The same mobile will help you when you are in danger.
