A 28-year-old woman committed suicide along with her infant son after allegedly killing her husband at a village near Ponnani in Malappuram district today.
The body of her husband Faizal (35) with deep cuts on his neck was lying inside the house while that of Selena (28) and the child Mohammed Fahim were found in a well near their house at Athani this morning, police said.
Selena, who was mentally challenged, could have killed her husband, police said, quoting her relatives.
They said her mother-in-law saw her jumping into the well and alerted the neighbours. But both mother and son drowned by the time Fire and Rescue Service personnel reached the spot on being informed.
Faizal was rushed to a nearby hospital by the neighbours, where he was declared brought dead.
