Mumbai train suicide

The incident
Shridevi Guruseedha Vader, 30, left her residence at around 12.30 am on Saturday morning along with her two sons, five-year-old Omkar and three-year-old Darshan. Her husband Guruseedha was informed of her death at around 1.30 am.

An officer from Kurla GRP said, “Guruseedha woke up around 1 am and noticed that his wife and two children were missing. We discovered the bodies of the three at around 1.15 am and called up Darshan’s nursery teacher, after we found an ID card on his body with the teacher’s number.

She, in turn, informed Guruseedha, who was called to the spot to identify the dead bodies. Yesterday, the doctors at Rajawadi Hospital declared Darshan to be out of danger.”

Case unclear
The cops are yet to ascertain the reason for the suicide. “We have noted down the husband’s statement, where he said that the couple had a small argument over dinner on Friday night. He told her that he had a stomach ache and wasn’t hungry, because of which she was angry with him.
