Bhawanipatna: Cracking the mystery surrounding the murder of a 30-year-old woman and her two sons, police have arrested Linga Majhi, the woman’s husband.
While the woman Bimla Majhi’s body was found lying on the railway track, her two children, Rabindra Majhi (4) and Dushmant Majhi (6), were found dead in a pool of blood inside their house at Singhjharan village under Sadar police limits.
Linga, the accused, initially killed his wife by slitting her throat and dumped her body on the railway track. Later, he returned home and killed his two sons in a similar manner, said Kalahandi SP B Gangadhar here on Tuesday.
