RANCHI: A 40-year-old woman late on Thursday pushed her two sons and a daughter inside a deep well in Matuliya village under Jainagar police station. Police arrested her from Katiyavillage, 10km away from Matuliya, under the same police station after villagers on Friday found bodies of the three children inside the well.
"The children are aged between five and 10 years," said SP, Koderma Hemant Toppo.
Sources in the village said the woman, Ashni Khatoon, was preparing food for the family when she entered into an argument with her mother-in-law. They fought over whether to buy slippers for the children. After some heated exchange the woman started crying. The woman, her mother-in-law and children were the only people at home. The children went to sleep without dinner that night.
