The body of a twenty-three year old woman along with her two-year old child was recovered from a well in Vavuniya this morning.
She is believed to have committed suicide with her child, because of her inability to pay back a loan obtained together with her husband. It is reported that the woman had left the house with her child yesterday, following an argument with her husband and had not returned.
Relatives and neighbours had found her body along with the body of her child in an abandoned well in the area. No arrested have been made so far. Vavuniya Police is investigating.
