Hisar, July 24
A Jind man has confessed to killing his five children over the past five years. Two of them were killed last week at Didwara village in Jind.
Confessing to his crime, Jumma revealed to the village panchayat that he did so on the advice of a tantrik of Kaithal. The panchayat handed him over to the police.
Jind DIG Ashvin Shenvi said the man confessed that he had perpetrated the crime.
His daughters, Nisha (7) and Muskan (11), had gone missing on July 17 under mysterious circumstances. The body of one of the girls was found from the Hansi-Butana link canal near the village while the body of the other girl was found 7 km away.
Jumma, a daily wager, had five children and all of them had died under mysterious circumstances.
He revealed to the panchayat that he killed his eldest child, a boy, five years ago. Later, he killed his other son and a daughter. However, nobody investigated the mysterious deaths of the children when the bodies were found from the canal.
On July 17, he gave intoxicants to his daughters and threw them into the canal at night.
Jumma told the panchayat that he was unable to take care of the children owing to poverty and that a tantrik had advised him to kill the children.
The police have registered a case of murder.
