MAHOBA: A 32-year-old inebriated man allegedly killed his two children after an argument with his wife in Uttar Pradesh's Mahoba district, police said on Sunday.

Harnarayan, a resident of Parapantar village in Panwari block, tied a 'gamcha' around the neck of his sons -- Ashish (8) and Aryan (5) -- and strangulated them around 7.30 pm on Saturday, Superintendent of Police Arun Kumar Srivastava said.

After the killing, Harnarayan tried to flee, but was caught by villagers and handed over to the police, according to the SP.

A case of murder has been registered and he has been taken into custody.
