Bengaluru, Feb 23: Due to acute state of poverty, a cobbler in Bengaluru was unable to buy new pair of shoes for his two children, and the helpless man was forced to kill his kids, so that they could never make any demand from him.
As per a report published in TOI, 37-year-old cobbler killed his 9-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter, after which he stuffed their bodies in a gunny bag and dumped them into a drain,on Saturday, Feb 20.
When his wife, who works as a maid, reached home in evening, then she found blood splattered on the bedsheet. Earlier, she thought that her husband has killed a chicken inside home, for black magic, but later, when she found her kids missing, she grew suspicion.
When she got to know that her husband has killed her children, then she filed a complaint against him on Sunday.
The man fled after committing the crime.
