Hopefully they will meet each other again in heaven
Distraught over the death of their only son, the parents in Chennai ended their lives by consuming a mixture of poisonous seeds.
The parents were found dead in their home on Friday morning while their daughter is undergoing treatment in a private hospital.
Makkal Osai reported that K. Balasubramaniam, 42, a farmer, and his wife B. Soundaravalli, 37, committed suicide after their son Ajay, 16, died of a snakebite six months ago.
On Friday morning, a farmer found the couple dead and their daughter Divya, 13, in critical condition.
Police have seized two suicide notes and a mobile phone from the house.
Balasubramaniam had left a voicemail message on the phone saying that they could not accept the death of their son and everyday was like “a living hell”.
