Howrah: A sub divisional court in Uluberia gave death sentence on Tuesdayto a man accused of murdering his three and a relative’s child.

Judge of the sub-divisional court, Subhashis Ghosh said that the incident is “a rarest of the rare crime”.

As per the police, the dead bodies of the four children were recovered from Howrah’s bagnan at Damoder river side in November 2011.

Before this incident, Hadi Kurashi, the accused, went from his house to a relative’s house with his own 3 children and one child of his sister-in-law. On reaching Bagnan Mahishrekha Setu, he threw out all the four children to the river from the train. He confessed to his crime later at interrogation. He confessed that he killed his children because he thought that they belonged to someone else and not his wife’s. He used to suspect his wife of alleged relationships.
