A 30-year-old woman smothered two of her daughters — Nandini (6) and Akanksha (6 months) — at her house in Zakhira in west Delhi’s Moti Nagar. Police sent her to IBHAS, Shahdara on Thursday on the suspicion of mental illness and she will be arrested after getting treatment.
Her husband has alleged that she killed her daughter under the influence of black magic.
Police got a call about the incident on Tuesday morning. When a team reached there, the mother, Suman, started to shout at the cops to stop them from entering the house. When the bodies of the girls were taken to a hospital, doctors said that the deaths were unnatural.
