On Monday police said that a couple killed their three daughters and committed suicide in Telangana`s Karimnagar locale.
G Komaraiah (36) and his wife Komaramma (34) strangulated their girls to death before hanging themselves at their residence in Huzurabad territory on Sunday night.
The shocking occurrence became visible on Monday when neighbors saw the bodies and alarmed the police.
Local people said a few relatives of Komaramma had assaulted Komaraiah on doubt that he was rehearsing black magic.
The couple felt offended over this and turned to the outrageous stride in the wake of killing their children aged between six and 10 years.
