A 70-year-old Rawalpindi woman and her adopted daughter took their own lives at their house, the police reported Wednesday night.

They lived in a house in Dhoke Farman Ali. Their bodies were found by their neighbours.

The area residents told the police that the woman was widowed a few years ago. She raised her brother-in-law’s son as her own but he left her three years ago after marriage. She adopted another child after that.

She was living in extreme poverty and had no means to provide for her daughter, the police said.
