An elderly married couple of Kiri Metiyawa in Navagattegama has taken poison intending to end life as they no longer wanted to live a burden to their children.

The couple with three grown up children has been identified as Nayaka Bandaralage Bandara Menike and Basnayake Mudiyanselage Dharmadasa.

The couple had taken poison last Wednesday and their neighbors have rushed them to Navagattegama hospital.

Later the couple was transferred to Puttalam General Hospital for further treatment.

The 65-year old mother died on admittance while the condition of the 72-year old father is still critical.

A sister of the 65-year old victim told police that her deceased sister lived in frustration as she did not want to be a burden to her three children.
