Bengaluru: Depressed by his wife’s suicide, a 32-year-old man allegedly killed his three children and committed suicide at Mico Layout on Friday. Mico Layout police have registered a case and have started an investigation.
A senior officer said Janakaraj Bista from Nepal was a security guard at the Ramanashree Enclave in Mico Layout and had been living in the city for nine years. Two months ago, Bista’s wife Nanda Devi hanged herself and he has been depressed since. The incident came to light in the afternoon when Bista’s sister Apsara, who lives nearby, brought him lunch. She repeatedly knocked at the door, but there was no response. She then alerted residents, who sneaked in through the window of Bista’s room and found him hanging.Before hanging his children Saraswathi (14), Hemanthi (9) and Rajkumar (3), Bista had cranked up the volume of his radio to the maximum to drown out their cries.
