A 38-year-old man killed his wife, two sons and mother-in-law before attempting suicide in Uttar Pradesh's Bulandshahr district, police said Monday.
Gurcharan Singh attacked Mamta, 35, sons Lavi, 8, Lovely, 12, and mother-in-law Natthi, 68, with a sword at his residence in Gulawathi area, about 400 km from here, and killed them late Sunday.
He attempted to kill himself with the same sword. Gurcharan is being treated at a hospital for his multiple injuries.
'Gurcharan has been referred to a hospital in Meerut district as his condition deteriorated while being treated in a hospital in Bulandshahr. His condition is still critical,' Deputy Superintendent of Police Rakesh Kumar told reporters in Bulandshahr.
'We are yet to establish the reason behind the killings. Gurcharan is a truck driver,' police inspector Sanjay Pandey told reporters.
'Locals have told us that there were heated arguments between Gurcharan and his wife yesterday (Sunday) night. He had directed his wife to leave his home,' Pandey said.
