BANGALORE: A woman killed her eight-year-old daughter and attempted suicide at her residence in Balajinagar, near Ittamadu on Friday.
The deceased has been identified as Saahina, while her mother Ramija was shifted to Victoria Hospital.
The incident took place at her residence at around 7 am, when her in-laws had gone to sell flowers.
Ramija tried to hang herself from the fan with a dupatta after strangling her daughter, the police said.
Meanwhile her fatherin- law Nagalingappa, who found her hanging from the fan, shifted her to the hospital.
It is suspected that poverty is the reason behind the extreme step.
Her husband had also committed suicide by consuming acid two years ago.
