The news of the man allegedly killing his wife and infant daughter before committing suicide spread like wildfire as the house is located opposite the crowded Atta market in Noida.
Hina's father, PK Jain, said Shivanand killed his daughter and the infant. "When he realised, he would not be able to get away, he was forced to commit suicide," he said.
"It was a love marriage, which took place three years ago. My daughter worked as accountant in my school. Shivanand married her with an eye on my property. I told her to part ways with him. I repent she didn't listen to me… I couldn't convince her," Jain said.
"I was against the marriage. I told my daughter that this man was not fit for her. He used to mentally and physically torture her. She complained to me several times. I had told her to divorce him," said Jain.
Family sources said Shivanand had been unemployed for a year. "Shivanand had returned from Jaisalmer on Monday. In the train, too, he attempted suicide by jumping on the tracks, but railway security personnel saved him," said a family member.
