The body of a woman, who allegedly committed suicide with her four children was recovered from a well in Begumganj, about 80 kms from here, police said.
The woman and her kids, whose body was found last night have been identified as Rajkumari, Dipesh (11), Shubham (7), Shivani (6) and Diksha (3), they said.
When the woman's husband Chhotelal returned home last night, he could not find his wife.
He went to a well near his house and found the body of his three-year-old daughter floating in it.
He then called the police after midnight and all the bodies were fished out subsequently.
Ram Singh Sahu, the father of deceased Rajkumari alleged that his son in-law was a drunkard who used to beat her up.
He said there was no way his daughter would have committed suicide. Police has registered a case and investigations are on.
