Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Three children – aged eight, four and two years – died mysteriously after their mother admitted them at a hospital in east Delhi on Tuesday morning. Police are waiting for a report from the doctors to ascertain the cause of death. While parents told the police that the children died following days of illness, police said that they were probing the case from all angles.
A senior police officer, on the condition of anonymity, said preliminary probe revealed that the father of the children, a rickshaw-puller and mother, a homemaker, rushed their kids to hospital around 10 am, reporting that they were down with diarrhoea for the past few days. Deputy commissioner of police (east), Pankaj Kumar Singh said no police case had been registered yet. Police are questioning neighbours of the couple to know more about the kids’ whereabouts before they died.
