An alcoholic tribal man allegedly killed his two girl children following a quarrel with his wife near Gudalur in The Nilgiris district on Sunday, police said. The Nilgiris police have formed special team to arrest the accused, who reportedly fled into a forest area adjacent to Allurvayal village.

Police said, Sivan, who is addicted to alcohol and does not have a regular work, picked up a fight with wife Sikki on Sunday morning.

Sivan used to demand money from Sikki, working in a coffee estate, to buy alcohol. The couple has two children, Kaveri (5) and Rathna (2). Sivan is Sikki’s second husband.

Soon after the fight on Sunday, Sikki went to a nearby pond to fetch water. Once she stepped out of the house, Sivan strangulated his two daughters, packed their bodies in a sack and carried it through a coffee estate in an apparent bid to dispose them of. One child’s leg was sticking out of the sack and some estate workers noticed it.  As they intercepted and questioned him about the contents of the sack, Sivan threw it away and fled to a forest adjacent the tribal hamlet.

Estate workers found bodies of two children in the sack and immediately alerted the Gudalur police. A team led by Gudalur DSP Thirumeni visited the spot and shifted the bodies to Nilgiri GH for postmortem.

Meanwhile, in Coimbatore, body of a 38-year-old man, who was apparently hit by a train was recovered by the Railway Police on Sunday. Balraj, from Nanjundapuram, is believed to have been intoxicated, when he trespassed onto the railway tracks.
