Hyderabad:In a shocking incident, an alcoholic man allegedly killed his three young sons by throwing them into a river following a tiff with his wife over some family feud Sunday.
The matter came to the fore Monday after the bodies of the three boys – Puneet (6), Sanjay (3) and three months old Rahul — were seen floating in the river near the village where the family lives.
Local people, shaken by the tragic sight, called the police, who fished out the bodies from the river. The horrific incident was reported from Chittoor district in Andhra Pradesh.
The accused was identified as Venkatesh, father of the three victims.
According to sources, Venkatesh had married to Amaravathy for the second time after his first wife could not have children.
After a fight last week, Amaravathy allegedly went to her parents’ home with her children. Last night, Venkatesh went to bring his wife and children back. One the way, the couple allegedly fought again, and Venkatesh stormed off with his sons.
“I never imagined he would kill his own children in this brutal manner,” Amaravathy told the police. Venkatesh is said to be an alcoholic.
