A woman allegedly committed suicide along with her three children by jumping into a reservoir in Rajasthan’s Barmer district, police said on Wednesday.
The incident occurred in Khara Mahechan village. All four drowned, Sindhari police station incharge Jetharam said.
The dead have been identified as Pappu Devi (30) and her three children — Kavita (6) Manish (4) and Suresh (2).
The officer said that the woman’s eldest daughter survived as she was with maternal grandmother. No one was present at the time of the incident.
He said the relatives of the dead have been informed. Post-mortem will be done on Thursday after they arrive.
The cause for incident has not been confirmed, but the woman apparently took the step due to some dispute with her husband.
