BHOPAL: In the Vindhya region’s Satna district, a horrifying discovery was made as a labourer couple and their two young sons were found murdered at two separate locations. The incident unfolded in the Nazirabad area of Satna city.

Sangita Chowdhary, 28, and her two sons, Nikhil, 8, and Hritik, 6, were found dead inside the house where they had been staying for just a day. Hours later, the body of Rakesh Chowdhary, 30, Sangita’s husband, was discovered near the railway tracks in the same city.

The couple, who earned their livelihood as daily wage labourers, had been forced to leave their rented accommodation on Monday. Seeking temporary shelter, they approached another labourer, Chanda, for a place to stay while they searched for a new home.

On Wednesday morning, Chanda noticed no movement from the room where the family was staying. Peering inside, she was horrified to find Sangita and her sons dead. Later that day, Rakesh’s body was found near the railway tracks.

Satna police officials have stated that the deaths appear to be murders, but further investigation is needed to uncover the full story.

In another horrifying incident, a woman named Chhaya was allegedly beheaded by her husband Anand in their home in the Ambah area of Morena district, part of the Gwalior-Chambal region.

The gruesome act occurred while Chhaya’s brother, Bhanu, was also in the house. Anand, who often fought with Chhaya over his drinking habits and had been allegedly torturing her for dowry since their marriage in 2022, locked Bhanu in a room before attacking Chhaya with a sharp-edged weapon.

Anand, who earned a living by driving an e-rickshaw, brutally beheaded his wife in a fit of rage. Another sad tragedy unfolded when a female official of the state public relations department, Pooja Thapak, died by suicide in her Bhopal home on the intervening night of Tuesday and Wednesday.

Pooja, 30, an assistant director at the state public relations department and currently serving as the public relations officer for the state’s panchayat and rural development minister Prahlad Singh Patel, was found hanged in her home. Preliminary investigations suggest that Pooja had been experiencing marital issues with her husband, Nikhil. However, the exact reason behind her extreme step remains under investigation by the police.
