Kolar: In a tragic incident, five members of a family died after they consumed poison fearing police investigation into a kidnap case of a nine-day-old baby.


Five members of the family had consumed poison on Sunday.

“Instead of taking such extreme step, they should have cooperated with the police which would have solved the issue and traced the baby,” said Inspector General of Police (Central Range) M Chandra Shekar said.

Reportedly, Sumitha (20), a paramedical student, gave birth 10 days ago.

She handed over the child to Geetha and Pushpa. Later, when she enquired about the whereabouts of her baby, the duo couldn’t answer her. She later lodged a complaint with the police. Based on the complaint, the police had registered a case of kidnap against Geetha and Pushpa.
