Man ends life after killing wife-daughter

Friday, 24 January 2020 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

nA man committed suicide after allegedly killing his wife and three-year-old daughter in Fundahar area in Raipur on Wednesday police said.

What prompted the man to take this extreme step is not yet  known, police said.

According to Police a neighbour called emergency number on Thursday afternoon after they found that no one was responding after  screams were heard coming from house.

“Police entered the room after breaking the lock and found that Praveen Kumar ( 21) was hanging from the ceiling fan. Praveen’s wife, Toshwari Nishad (20) was found dead on the bed along with three-year old daughter,” said City Superintendent of Police (CSP) Sunil Sharma.

The CSP further said that it seems that Praveen, who was a farmer, strangulated both his wife and daughter and then tried to slit veins of his wrists.

“The primary investigation suggests that after his wrists started bleeding, he tied himself to the ceiling fan with the help of a rope and hanged himself,” said Sharma.

The CSP further said that police are investigating the reason behind the      incident and police are     taking statements of the   family members.

“Prima facie it seems that the couple were having        dispute over Praveen’s liquor habit,” the CSP added.

A case has been registered under section 174 of the CrPC with Telibadha police station, police said.
