In a gruesome incident, two young boys were hacked to death by their mother after she had a heated exchange with her husband. The incident was reported from Telangana's Siddipet town on Saturday, where the woman, Chinthala Saroja, killed both her sons and decided to commit suicide.
In Ganesh Nagar neighbourhood of Siddipet town, about 100 kms from Hyderabad, a 28-year-old housewife told the media persons that she decided to kill her children and commit suicide following a quarrel with husband.
Showing no mercy, Saroja stuffed cloth in the mouth of her sons - Ayan (5) and Harshavardhan (two-and-half) and battered them to death with glass bottles.
According to the police, after killing her sons, Saroja could not gather the courage to end her life and later reached a police station, where she surrendered.
Her husband Chityala Bhaskar, a driver, was not at home when she killed the children.
According to police, Bhaskar wed Saroja in an inter-caste marriage 6 years ago. He had earlier divorced his first wife.
The couple had differences among them ever since their marriage and indulged in frequent quarrels.
