Priya’s children Arunjith and Abhijith were surprised to see a huge crowd gather in front of their house on Wednesday. Arunjith, a student of class I, and Abhijith, an LKG student, were playing with their cousins when their father was bought home in an unconscious condition.

“We went to Vellankani and saw elephants and horses there. We also took several pictures on out mother’s cellphone. Tomorrow we will go to school and tell our friends about our trip,” said Arunjith and Abhijith unaware of the tragedy.

It was a sorrowful day for the small colony near the Kuzhuveli Temple in Chalikkavattom. Sujith decided to undertake a family trip to Vellankani, following a request by Priya. Priya, Sujith and their children, along with Priya’s parents,  went to Vellankani on Saturday. They also visited other tourist spots in Tamil Nadu.

“Priya did not show any signs of major illness after their marriage eight years ago. We cannot believe that she died of cardiac arrest. There is something suspicious in this. She was taken to a hospital from her house in Thammanam. When my daughter contacted Sujith, he said that they will return home by evening. But by afternoon, one of our relatives informed us that she died owing to heart attack,” said Sukumaran, Priya’s father-in-law.
