A day after the tragic death of a man and his three sons in alleged suicide in Tharparkar district, a man, his wife and sister ended their lives in Tando Allahyar district on Wednesday.

The deceased 25 years old Bheero Kolhi, his wife 22 years old Wakto, and his sister 16 years old Warjo allegedly hung themselves from a tree in a sugarcane field where they worked as peasants.

The family sources claimed that the deceased took their lives because of abject poverty. The incident happened near village Darya Khan Loond in Chambar taluka in the limits of Chambar Police Station.

Naitraj, brother of Bheero, told the local media that his brother was coping with extreme mental stress.

"Yesterday he took his wife and our sister to a sugarcane field to collect fodder for livestock but they did not return."

According to him, when they began searching they found the bodies hanging from a tree. He said their family is poor and especially the deceased found it hard to make both ends meet.

The bodies were shifted to the rural health centre for the medico-legal examination after which they were handed over to the family for the final rites.

The Chambar police said although the case bears hallmarks of suicide, they are still investigating how the three died.

On September 28, a man in Chachro town of Tharparkar threw his three minor sons in a well before jumping in. All of them drowned to death. Their family sources also cited poverty as the reason for the family's suicide.
