BHOPAL: A 32-year-old truck driver identified as Yashwant Singh was arrested by Banganga police for allegedly murdering his live-in partner Suman Naik and her two kids.
According to staff at Banganga police station, local residents spotted Yashwant cleaning his blood stained hands and a bloody wooden stick outside his house on Monday morning.
Suspicious residents then alerted police who arrived at the spot and interrogated Yashwant. When cops entered the house, they found Suman, her son Abhishek and daughter Vanshika lying dead in pool of blood.
Yashwant was immediately arrested and police recovered the wooden stick used for the crime. Primary questioning revealed that Suman had separated from her husband two years ago and with her kids was living with Yashwant.
Suman and Yashwant had regular artguments since the past two months over Yashwant’s unwillingness to economically support the kids.
Sometime after midnight on Sunday, Suman had an argument with Yashwant over her children who had not eaten anything since two days.
As the situation turned violent, Yashwant used the wooden stick to first kill Abhishek (12), followed by Suman and Vanshika (7).
“The triple murders took place between 12 am and 2 am between Sunday-Monday night," said an officer from Banganga station.
