Tirunelveli (TN): Unable to bear the cost of treatment of their mentally challenged daughter, a goldsmith couple allegedly committed suicide by consuming poison before murdering their four children at Palayamkottai on Thursday, police said.
The couple administered the poison to their five children, aged between two and 12, and then consumed it themselves, police said.
Police suspect they took the extreme step as they could not afford the treatment of their two-and-half-year-old mentally challenged girl child.
However, one of the children has been admitted to hospital in a serious condition, police said.
