Three of a family commits suicide

Sittwe (Narinjara): Three members of a family in Sittwe, the capital of Arakan State, committed suicide today by consuming poison, said a relative.

“It is very sad and tragic. All the family members died on the spot after having poison,” he said.

The victims were identified as U Aung Hla Sein (33), his son Soe Win (11) and his daughter Aye San dar Khin (10). All of them are from Bauk Thi Su quarter in Sittwe.

“We found them on the floor in their house at 10: 30 a.m. No one was alive,” he said.

The suicide could be related to their deteriorating family business. The children’s mother left the family a few years ago in search of a job in Thailand, local sources said.

“The children’s mother went to Thailand a few years ago and has not returned home. The family was also suffering because of this,” local sources said.

The bodies of the family members were sent to Sittwe general hospital today noon for post mortem. Many sympathizers from the town visited the hospital.
