Chennai: In a horrific case of passion murder, a young mother poisoned her two children in the suburb of Kundrathur and ran away with a biriyani saleswoman while her husband was working in a private bank, police said . They said the research teams had "some clues" and that they would soon catch both killers.
Police said Abiramani, 25, and Vijayakumar, 30, were living with their 7-year-old son Ajay and their 5-year-old daughter Karumila in Agastheeswarar Koil street in Kundrathur. They had moved here just five months ago. Their marriage was in love about eight years ago.
The family had dined at a hotel in Biriyani near their homes at one time or another, when Abiramani met Sundaram who was working there. Both soon developed intimacy.
The duo decided to eliminate the whole family and flee to a remote place to start life again, and as a result, Abiramani late Friday fed her two children with poison and waited for her husband to come back to finish it.
But as fate turned out, Vijay had to stay at his bank because of hard work and returned home around five o'clock Saturday morning. He was surprised to find that the house was not locked from the inside but a bigger shock was waiting for him. Pushing the door, he found his two children dead with foam in their mouths.
Police who arrived at the scene took the two bodies to the Government Hospital of Chromepet for an autopsy. A hunt was launched for Abirami and Sundaram.
