Businessman detained for murdering his wife and daughter
Bowenpally: Bowenpally Police arrested a businessman, Dr Vijay, on Saturday for suffocating his wife and daughter to death at their home a few days ago, but it has been described as a suicide case by him. Police say the accused stayed here with his wife Sneha and three children. As he has suffered losses since the lockdown, Vijay has considered killing his family and ending his life as well. In the early hours of July 1, he suffocated his wife Sneha and daughter Hansika (14) to death with a pillow. Later he went to another room and consumed poison.
CI K Ravi Kumar said: “However, the younger ones sounded the alarm and the neighbors who found Vijay unconscious alerted the police. He was admitted to the hospital, while the bodies of Sneha and Hansika were transferred to the morgue. A case under Article 174 of the CrPC has been registered and the investigation has started. “During the investigation, Vijay told police that the three of them had consumed poison. But his claims were false, as Sneha and Hansika’s autopsy report revealed that they had been suffocated in dead.
When he was questioned again, he confessed to the murder. He also admitted that after the double murder he couldn’t muster enough courage to kill his two sons. He himself consumed poison, ”added the IC. Based on the confession, the case was changed. The accused was taken into custody under Article 302 of the IPC, while his sons were transferred to a day care center.
