A man has been arrested for allegedly throwing his four children into a canal following an argument with his wife, sources said on Wednesday.
The 12-year-old daughter, whom the man flung from a 30-foot high bridge, not only managed to swim to safety but also rescued two of her siblings. However, the fourth child, a five-year-old and youngest of the lot, is still missing.
The accused, Pushpendra Kumar, after a domestic dispute, dropped his wife at her father’s place. On the way back home, he threw his four kids into the 15-foot-deep canal.
