Shocking! 7-year-old's parents kill themselves post child's death of dengue

In a shocking incident, a seven-year-old child’s parents committed suicide in New Delhi on September 12. The distraught parents took the extreme step after their child died of dengue because he was denied admission to any hospital for lack of bed. The couple, Lakshman Chandra Raut, 35, and Babita Raut, 30, belonged to Odisha. They could not bear the fact that their child had suddenly died, and so killed themselves. The parents took the child to a Moolchand hospital and then to Max hospital in the Saket area.

The two committed suicide by jumping from their building. The incident took place in New Delhi’s Lado Sarai area. A suicide note was found near the dead bodies of the parents. Police are investigating the case further.
