Guwahati: In a horrific incident a man brutally hammered dead his two daughters and wife at Assam’s Banfulnagar area in Guwahati, on the wee hours of Saturday.
The man identified as Pranab Kumar Mahanta jumped off from the Saraighat Bridge after committing the crime. His body has not been found yet.
Although the motive of the murder is still not clear, neighbours said that Pranab went into depression after he suffered loss in business and failed to repay a huge loan taken from a local bank.
Police sent the bodies to Guwahati Medical College for postmortem. A forensic team went to the crime scene to investigate the matter further.
