Keonjhar, June 14 (LocalWire): A man allegedly killed his three minor daughters and later committed suicide at Ulibasa village under Anandpur police limits in Keonjhar district today afternoon.
The man identified as Durga Sidhhu was a daily labourer. Villagers said he was under a lot of stress since his wife’s death a few years back.
His mother found the door locked when she returned from the weekly market and informed the villagers.
The villagers broke open the door to find his three daughters in a pool of blood and Durga Sidhhu hanging from the ceiling. The girls were aged nine, eight and six years.
Sub-Collector of Anandpur, Rabindra Sahu, said, ‘After preliminary investigations, it is feared the man axed his daughters and hung himself as he was under a lot of duress. Police is further investigating the case.’
