A MAN killed his terminally-ill wife and their two daughters as he felt the children would not be able to cope without their mother.
Shambu Singh, 28, told police on Sunday in Dudu, about 50km from Jaipur, north India that he had no regrets, Makkal Osai reported.
Jaipur police said that Shambu killed Manohar Kanwar, 24, and their daughters, Pooja, four, and Deepu, two, with an axe on Saturday morning.
Shambu said he was weighed down by anxiety with the prolonged illness of his wife and that he was fed up with his life.
Police said the man, who worked at a hardware shop in Jaipur, would return home once a week.
He had apparently been in depression for some time as he was worried about his financial situation.
> About 200 residents of Ganapathipalayam in Pollachi, which is 300km from Chennai, submitted a petition to the Coimbatore district collector, demanding that a stone quarry be shut down in their area.
They claimed that the quarry was operating illegally, Malaysia Nanban reported.
“Trucks have been transporting stones on a daily basis,” said a petitioner, explaining that the dust and pollution had affected their livelihood.
