The accused stabbed to death his wife, a seven-year-old daughter, a five-year-old son and a two-month-old daughter around 1 am.

New Delhi: A tutor in Delhi's Mehrauli area was arrested on Saturday for killing his wife and three children.

According to police, the accused has been identified as Upendra Shukla. An officer said that Shukla used a kitchen knife to stab his wife, a seven-year-old daughter, a five-year-old son and a two-month-old daughter around 1 am. The accused also left a note, accepting that he was behind the murders.

The incident came to light in the morning when the accused's mother-in-law, who was also in the house, knocked the door of Shuka's room and did not get a response, following which she sought neighbours' help.

When their efforts went in vain, the people gathered at Shukla's house called the police, who found the four lying in a pool of blood with the accused sitting inside.

"Police have recovered a handwritten note where he has written that he killed all of them but no reason has been mentioned," said DCP South Vijay Kumar.



He has been arrested and police is questioning him. A crime team has also visited the place and collected the weapon of offence. Police said only after detailed questioning the motive behind the act would be clear. "But what we gather is that his wife had diabetes and he was not financially stable. Whether this or some sort of depression or family dispute led to the crime will be known after interrogation," he added.
