Police have identified the victims as 23-year-old Priyanka Mahato Kanu and her 10-month-old daughter Mahi Mahato, residents of Manara Siswa Municipality-2 in Mahottari.

Dhanusha Police Spokesperson DSP Ranjan Awa states that the circumstances surrounding the deaths remain unclear. While initial evidence points towards possible suicide, the technical investigation is ongoing, and the possibility of murder has not been ruled out.

Priyanka’s father-in-law, Phekan Mahato, reports that she had left for her parent’s home for treatment in Janakpurdham on Wednesday. After her father couldn’t find her, the family discovered she had left earlier that afternoon. The news of the deaths came as a devastating shock to the family.

Priyanka’s husband works in the village, and both families indicate there was no history of serious conflict within the marriage. The father-in-law suspects foul play may have been involved.
