A female doctor allegedly killed her mother and sister by injecting them with drugs before overdosing on sleeping pills in a bid to end her life at Surat in Gujarat but survived, police said on Sunday.
30-year-old Dr. Darshana Prajapati injected her mother Manjulaben, 59, and her sister Falguni, 28, with drugs at their house in the Katagram area on Saturday, Times Now reported.
Both of them died on Sunday morning.
She also tried to end her life by consuming a large number of sleeping pills.
Darshana is currently undergoing treatment at the civil hospital, a police officer said.
“Both Manjulaben and Falguni died apparently due to drug overdose while Dr Darshana is undergoing treatment at the civil hospital where the police recorded her statement,” Times Now quoted ACP DJ Chavda as saying.
Dr Darshana told the police that she was fed up with her life, he said.
“Since her mother and sister were dependent on her, she wanted to take their life before killing herself. She said she injected them with a sleep-inducing drug. The exact drug injected will be known after postmortem,” Chavda said.
Dr Darshana was living with her mother, sister, brother and sister-in-law at Sahajananad Society in the Katargam locality under the Chowkbazar police station.
Her brother and sister-in-law were not at home at the time of the incident.
