In a shocking incident reported from Uttar Pradesh, the state police on Wednesday took a 35-year-old man into their custody for allegedly killing his 28-year-old wife and throwing his three minor kids into Ganga. The crime took place on Tuesday after the accused, identified as Pappu was denied sex by his wife Doli.

As per the police, Pappu started his spree on Tuesday, shooting Doli in the head after she denied to have sex with him before taking his three kids Sania (5), Vansh (3) and Arshita (18 months old) to the Ganga canal and pushing them into the river. Following that, the accused ran away, but the police succeeded in arresting him the following morning. The bodies of the minors are not yet found.

“The accused said that his wife was spreading his physical advances for the last 15 days, which made him angry. Pappu had warned his wife that he would kill her if she did not do it. When she refused again on Tuesday, Pappu allegedly shot in the head... After killing the wife the accused was worried what would happen to their children so he killed them too,” a report by The Times of India quoted a police officer as saying.

Citing sources, the report further stated that the woman victim had married Pappu’s elder brother around 10 years ago, and after he died, she tied the knot with Pappu.
