The DMRC employee who allegedly killed his wife and daughter in east Delhi’s Jyoti Colony area on Tuesday had searched on the internet ‘how to tie a noose?’ before hanging himself, police said.
According to police, the desktop in Sushil Kumar’s (43) room, where the bodies of the DMRC employee and his wife were found, was on when they reached the spot. Kumar had apparently browsed the internet before committing suicide.
Kumar on Tuesday afternoon was found hanging from the ceiling of a room on the second floor of a building, his wife Anuradha (43) was found dead on the floor in the same room with her throat cut open, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Shahdara) Rohit Meena said.
Police found the couple’s 13-year-old son in an injured condition, lying beside the dead body of his six-year-old sister, he said.
Both the children had their throats slit, police said. Kumar, the youngest among three brothers and a native of Uttar Pradesh’s Banaras, lived on the second floor of the building with his family. His eldest brother who died during Covid-19 lived with his family on the ground floor while the other brother, Sunil, lives on the first floor.
When police knocked on the doors of their house, Kumar’s niece Monika said she initially thought that it was a mistake.
