- Blind mother with cancer
- Funeral at Kachiguda Cemetery
- The grieving son also committed suicide there
Nagender and Lakshmibai (60), who live in Shyamnagar, Golanka, have two sons, Vinod Kumar (36) and Vijay Kumar. Nagender died when the child was young and Lakshmibai went to work as a laborer and raised two sons. Unmarried Vinod Kumar works as an auto driver and supports his family. However, Lakshmibai, who was diagnosed with cancer some time ago, passed away on Wednesday. Her funeral was held at Golanaka Harraspenta Cemetery.
However, Vinodkumar, who had developed a great love for his mother, could not digest the fact that she was no more. After the funeral he went home and left without telling anyone for a while. Relatives searched around but could not find him as he had not been home for some time. Meanwhile, locals spotted a man lying dead in a cemetery shed on Thursday morning and informed the police. With this, the police reached there and identified him as Vinodkumar. Relatives say he committed suicide because he could not bear his mother’s death.
