On Tuesday Rajesh woke up around midnight and attacked the five members of his wife’s family with a brick who were sleeping beside him and then jumped to the adjacent terrace and climbed down to the balcony of the first floor from where he then jumped to reach the ground. In the process, he hurt his leg and could not escape.
A senior Police official reported, “The locals had no idea that he had murdered three people. They thought that he fell from the terrace in his sleep. Instead of cornering him, the locals helped him get up and called for his father-in-law, who was inside. Since he did not respond, the locals became suspicious and went to the terrace to check if he was fine.”
Locals reported that the bodies were found in the pool of blood, their clothes and bed covers drenched in blood, brutally murdered and their faces disfigured with a sharp object.
