Naidu stated that the two younger children were possibly poisoned.

“The motive for the deaths is not known; however, it is suspected that it could be driven by poverty.”

An inquest was held, and three counts of murder were filed.

“It is a deeply concerning and heartbreaking issue that women facing poverty can be driven to such despair. Socioeconomic challenges can exacerbate their vulnerability to mental health issues.

“Addressing poverty and promoting mental health support are crucial to prevent such tragedies. As we commemorate Women’s Month, I urge women to raise their voices and speak out. It is crucial to address concerns promptly rather than waiting until they become more difficult to resolve,” Mene said.
