HYDERABAD: Lake Police prevented a 26-year-old woman from jumping into the Hussainsagar along with three of her children on Thursday.

The woman, D.Rajalakshmi, claimed that harassment by her husband D Narsing Rao made her decide to commit suicide. She is the mother of a 10-month-old girl, and 3-year-old and 5-year-old boys.

The woman, a resident of Rasoolpura, was worried over who would be taking care of her children and decided to jump into the lake along with them.

Home Guard K Ramchandar and constable K Satyanarayana of Lake Police, who rescued the woman, said that they found the woman moving under suspicious conditions at Children’s Park near Ramgopalpet police station and intercepted her. “She confessed that she was there to commit suicide,” said Satyanarayana.

Rajalakshmi said that her husband used to harass her by casting doubts over her fidelity and threatened to injure her with a knife. “I will be forced to attempt suicide again if I am made to live with my husband. I need to take care of my kids. Please help me get some livelihood,” she pleaded, while talking with mediapersons.

DCP (central zone) VB Kamalasan Reddy said that Narsing Rao used to beat her regularly and played home theatre at a high pitch to drown her screams. Narsing Rao did not spare his kids either and used to verbally abuse them. Rao was taken into custody.

“We will rehabilitate Rajalakshmi and admit her kids to a hostel. We will write a letter requesting the government to provide her with a job in any government department,” the DCP said and appreciated  Satyanarayana and Ramchandar for saving the lives of the woman and her kids. He appealed to people to approach the police with their problem instead of trying to commit suicide. It is learnt that most of the constables and Home Guards do not not how to swim. About this, Kamalasan Reddy said that they advised the staff to learn swimming. He also said they would consider employing expert swimmers.

Constable Satyanarayana said that it had only been one and a half months since he joined the Lake Police and he rescued 15 persons. Some of his colleagues suggested fencing of the lake.
