A 25-year-old woman and her mother reportedly committed suicide by consuming poison, following a quarrel with her husband during their relative’s marriage on Sunday at Desurpalayam near Sathanur.

The deceased were identified as Valli, wife of Kanniyappan and a resident of Melpallipattu, and her mother Malika (45). Valli and Kanniyappan had gone to their relative’s marriage at Desurpalayam on Sunday. Valli’s mother had also accompanied them. Kanniyappan scolded  his wife and mother-in-law saying that the arrangements made for food were not good and went to her relative’s house in the locality.

Seeing this, Malika’s brother Rajamanickam asked his sister and her daughter to accompany him to their village. He also said Kanniyappan should apologise for ill-treating his sister and her daughter in front of their relatives, police said.

In a fit of rage, Valli consumed rat poison. Her mother grabbed the poison and consumed it too. Rajamanickam, who was in an  inebriated condition, also consumed the powder. Valli’s relatives rushed  them to the TGMCH. However, she died on Sunday night and her mother died around 9.30 am on Monday. Police said Rajamanickam was admitted to the intensive care unit and was battling for life.
