Share post:

The bodies of two of his daughters,of a Haryana man,  ages 11 and 7, were recovered from the Hansi-Butana Link canal near his home in Didwara village on July 20,The accused had lodged a police complaint five days ago that his two children went missing.

This 38-year-old man has been arrested in Haryana’s Jind district. He was arrested for killing his five children in the last four years, including two of them recently, a senior police official said on Friday.

Jumma, a labourer, belongs to a village in Safidon in Jind. He told the police that  his wife is pregnant with the sixth child.

The bodies of two of his daughters, ages 11 and 7, were recovered from the Hansi-Butana Link canal near his home in Didwara village on July 20, five days after the accused had lodged a police complaint stating the duo had gone missing.

Jind Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Ajit Singh Shekhawat got suspicious, when Jumma kept changing his statements, during the course of investigation.

The police assumed that Jumma might be under mental stress due to the death of his children and hence did not pressurize him.

Later on they involved the village panchayat in the investigation, and the man confessed before them and later, the police, that he killed his five children.

Jumma admitted that he drugged his two minor daughters and threw them in the canal a few days ago.  He was arrested Thursday evening, and he has been charged with murder.

Earlier, Jumma’s three children, all below 11, had also died mysteriously.

He had told his neighbours that one of his sons died in sleep, a daughter died while playing and another son started vomiting and died.

“He has now confessed that he killed those three children as well. While two of them were strangulated by him, one was administered a poisonous tablet,” the police officer said.

This man, the accused administered some intoxicants to two of his daughters before throwing them in the canal, he had also given some drugs to his wife.

“He had kept his wife, who was pregnant with the sixth child, under heavy sedation during past few days,” he said.

Police suspect the hand of a Tantrik, but as of now there are not very sure about it as Jumma has not mentioned anything yet.

The police are planning to seek the help of a mental health expert in the case to further question the accused and find the exact motive which led him to kill his own children.
