Hyderabad: A man killed his sister’s mentally challenged twins to relieve her from the hardships of looking after them, police said on Saturday.

Srijana Reddy and her twin brother Vishnuvardhan Reddy, aged 12, were strangulated to death by Mallikarjun Reddy in his rented house in the city’s Chaitanyapuri area late on Friday.

According to the police, the incident came to light when the house owner noticed the accused along with two others trying to shift the bodies in his car.
