P. Vellertore (52) a former security guard whose wife had left the family most likely arising allegedly from poverty strangled and killed his three children aged 6, 5 and 3. He then attempted to hang himself together with his eldest daughter (14) who had later changed her mind.
In prosperous Malaysia, the country with the tallest twin towers in the world the Indian suicide rate arising out of poverty is 600% higher than for the Malay community.
And poverty in the Indian community arises largely because of UMNO denying the Indians upward mobility job opportunities in the government and private sectors, business licence and permit opportunities, skills training and higher education opportunities.
Vellatore must have lost all hope. Only death could end his day to day misery. And this is what he must have tried to do.
But then UMNO will get their MIC mandores to divert this suicide cause away from poverty and say that the Indians do so because they, watch too much Tamil movies or drink alcohol.
