Pondy: Family expelled from Aurobindo Ashram attempts suicide

Puducherry:    December 18th

An entire family - five sisters and their parents - jumped into the sea here this morning, a day after they were evicted from the  famous Aurobindo Ashram.

Two of the young women and their mother have died, according to reports  while the father and three other daughters were rescued by fishermen and have been hospitalized.

The family is from Bihar. The five sisters had been staying in the  residential part of the Aurobindo Ashram for several years; their parents lived close by.

The trust that runs the ashram had 10 years ago accused one of the sisters of misconduct.  Earlier this month, the Supreme Court ruled in favour of the trust and said the sisters should vacate their rooms within a week; if they failed to go , the court said, the police should evict them.
