The Kerala police on Thursday moved to question officers of a nationalised bank in connection with the investigation into the debt-related suicide of Lekha, 44, and her daughter, Vaishnavi, 19, at their home at Maraimuttom in Neyyatinkara early this week. Meanwhile, at least three bank officers involved in the case had reportedly moved the court for anticipatory bail. Investigators said the bank notice appeared to be the last straw and the mother-daughter duo feared they would be rendered homeless. Investigators said the suicide note had not blamed the bank authorities. However, they could not discount the backdrop of financial trouble the victims faced at the time of their death.
