CHENNAI: The woman, who had murdered her two children for her illicit affair with a man, was arrested by special police on Saturday night. Enquiries revealed that Abirami on Thursday poisoned the food of her husband Vijay and children, Ajai (7) and Karumila (4).

“While the husband and son were not affected by the poison, her daughter died the same night. Having failed to murder her husband and son as planned, the woman tried to carry out her plan on Friday night. However, her husband, who left for work on Friday morning assuming that his daughter was asleep, informed her that he would not return home that night. This led the woman to poison her son, this time successfully, before fleeing to Nagercoil,” said an investigation officer.

The woman had planned to elope to Nagercoil with Sundaram, an employee in a restaurant,  with whom she had an extramarital affair. Her plan of murdering her husband became a flop and she fled the house instantly, informing Sundaram to meet her in Nagercoil.

However, the police nabbed Sundaram before he could escape. The Kundrathur police made a call through Sundaram’s phone and tricked Abirami into their net.

Vijay, 30, an employee in a private bank and his wife, Abirami, were living with their two children Ajay (7) and Karnika (4) in a rented house in Thiruvalluvar Nagar, Moondram Kattalai, Kundrathur. Vijay, who worked late on Friday, returned home on Saturday morning. When he opened the door, he saw his son and daughter frothing at the mouth. His wife was missing. He informed the Kundrathur police about the incident.

The police recovered the bodies and sent them to the Government General Hospital at Chrompet for postmortem.
