An auto driver has been suspected to have murdered his two children and wife in Nagercoil here on Sunday.
Saranya (32) daughter of Wilson of Puthukudiyiruppu village had got married to auto driver, Arun alias Arunachalam (35) five years ago. The couple have two children, Rebeca (4) and Isaac Abraham (2). The husband and wife were said to be constantly quarreling with each other, with Arunachalam demanding more dowry from Saranya’s parents.
When Saranya’s mother reached their house on Sunday morning, which was locked, she was shocked to see through the window her daughter hanging from the fan and her two grandchildren lying dead on the floor. The Kottar police have since picked up Arunachalam and investigations are on.
