Vadodara, July 6 (UNI) A man allegedly committed suicide by jumping into a pond after throwing his three children into it following a quarrel with his wife.

According to police, Sajid Khan Pathan (35), a resident of Hathikhana area here, had a tiff with his wife Nasira Bano last night after which, in a fit of frustration, he took his three children - Aashiyana (10), Samira (7) and Sahil (4) to the Sarasia pond and threw them in it. Thereafter, he also jumped into the waters.

A few shopkeepers nearby tried to rescue them, but Sajid and Aashiyana drowned, while the other two children were pulled out and have been admitted to the SSG civil hospital here.
