Man admits to killing five kids

Tribune News Service

Hisar, July 24

The mother of five children who were killed by their father over the past five years has demanded that the accused father be hanged or shot for the crime.

The accused father, Jumma, a daily-wager from Didwara village in Jind district, had intoxicated his two daughters Nisha (7) and Muskan (11) and threw them in a canal on the outskirts of the village.

As the police were probing the case after the recovery of the bodies from the Hansi Butana canal, the man confessed to killing his daughters in front of a panchayat in the village on Thursday evening.

The father revealed that he had also killed three of his children over the past five years when they were aged between two years to nine months.

Jumma's wife Reena, who is nine months pregnant, said that he should either be hanged or shot. "He has gone on record confessing that he was the perpetrator of the murders of our children. He must die for what he has done to my children," she said.

Village sarpanch Sanjeev Kumar said that villagers were perplexed when the girls went missing. Three of Jumma's children had also died under mysterious circumstances earlier.

"Villagers had doubted that some known person or relative might be involved in the murders. Hence, they held a panchayat on Thursday and asked Jumma if he suspected anybody. But he came out with a shocking confession," the sarpanch said, adding that the villagers immediately handed him over to the police.

ASP Ajit Singh Sekhawat said that Jumma has been arrested and he has confessed to the crime. On July 15, he gave intoxicant-laced eatables to the girls and later, took them to the Hansi Butana link canal. There, he threw them into the canal. He revealed that he had poisoned his nine-month-old daughter five years ago.

Subsequently, he had strangled his two sons aged one and two years. The police are trying to find out the motive behind the crime, the ASP said.
