Woman rescued after attempting suicide in Goa, infant daughter found dead at home

Goa police officials said a woman from Chekalim, south Goa, killed her one-year-old daughter and attempted suicide on Saturday. The woman, who allegedly cut her wrist and attempted to end her life after jumping from the bridge over the Zuari River, was rescued and taken to Goa Medical College and Hospital for treatment.

Police officials said that after rescuing the woman and inquiring about her home and family, police officials visited her home where they found her 14-month-old daughter dead. While the cause of the girl’s death is not yet ascertained, it is suspected that she was strangled to death. Police officials said the premeditated murder (Section 302, IPC) and Section 8 of the Goa Children’s Act were registered at Vasco Police Station.

The motive behind the killing of the girl or the cause of her death was not known. We are trying to find out. “The investigation is underway and we will have to wait for the autopsy report,” a police official said.

Police officials said the woman’s husband had been working abroad and had recently returned after visiting. The woman was rescued after a construction worker spotted her jumping off the bridge in the early hours of Saturday morning and police were alerted.
