New York, Feb 11 : A 34-year-old Indian woman who threw herself and her 19-month-old daughter into the frigid Hudson River two years ago after a sudden onset of psychosis, can now return to her country and children.
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Gregory Carro sanctioned the reunion after noting that Devi Silvia has been in remission from bi-polar disorder and reliably continuing with medication and treatment.
Silvia nearly killed herself and her daughter Jessica in the failed murder-suicide bid in 2010.
Prosecutors at the time said that Jessica was blue and motionless when she was pulled from the water, and only lived because eyewitnesses called for help at the right time, The New York Post reports.
Silvia told authorities earlier that she pulled the near-fatal stunt to get revenge on her husband for moving the family out of India and hopscotching them around the United States through his low-pay tech job with Oracle.
According to the report, the judge said Silvia could serve her five years probation in India providing she keeps the court, prosecutors and state mental health officials apprised of her whereabouts and continued progress in therapy.
Meanwhile, Silvia's now-healthy girl and her another eight-year-old daughter are living in India with her sisters' husband. (ANI)
