Two tourists from Kerala commit suicide in Goa

PANAJI: In a shocking incident, two tourists from Kerala allegedly committed suicide at Miramar Beach near here on Tuesday while three others, including a 10-year-old girl, were admitted to hospital after they were suspected to have consumed poison.

"The incident occurred in the early hours and was brought to the notice of the police by the people who went for a morning walk on Miramar Beach," Superintendent of Police (North) D K Sawant said.

While two tourists, including a woman, were found dead on the beach, the trio – a man, a woman and the girl – were rushed to two different hospitals. The condition of the man, being treated at the Goa Medical College Hospital, is critical, Sawant said.

The girl, being treated at a private hospital, is talking in Malayalam and police have rushed a translator to gather information for identifying them, he said.
