In a heart-wrenching incident, a man who belonged to Tripura allegedly killed his wife and mother-in-law and then cut their body in front of his two young children who have been discovered screaming in horror. He then reportedly consumed poison at his in-laws’ household, the police stated.
The incident took place in Tripura’s Dhalai district on Monday. It was reported to the police following locals discovered the two females lying in a pool of blood, and the young children shocked and crying. The man, a resident of Hapania in West Tripura, about 7 km from Tripura capital Agartala, was seen unconscious in a further area, the police stated.
“We have arrested the man and have conducted his medical examination. Traces of poison have been seen in his body, but he is out of danger. The intention behind the attack is yet to be found out as we have not been able to question him till now,” sub-divisional police officer Ashish Dasgupta stated.
