Tragic Incident: Poverty-Stricken Couple Loses Three Daughters

A migrant labourer and his wife killed their three daughters as they could not raise them because of poverty in Punjab’s Jalandhar, said police today.

They confessed their crime hours after the bodies of three sisters were found inside a trunk in their house in Kanpur village, they said.

Sushil Mandal and his wife Manju Devi, both daily wagers, gave their daughter milk mixed with pesticides on Sunday and later they stuffed their bodies inside the trunk.

The couple reported the girls – Kanchan (4), Sakshi (7) and Amrita (9) missing the same night at Maqsudan Police Station, a police official said
