A 40-year-old man axed six members of his family, including two minor daughters, in Jabalpur district of Madhya Pradesh on Monday, police said.

Sunil Sen axed his 60-year-old mother Munni Bai, 35-year-old wife Jyoti, 30-year-old sister Sangeeta, daughters Happy and Lovey - aged five and four - and three-year-old nephew Rahul in Sainik Society colony in Gada area of Jabalpur, about 350 km from Bhopal.

"While Munni Bai died on the way to the hospital, five others died on the spot. He (Sen) also attacked his neighbour Rajkumar Gautam who survived the attack but was injured critically," Jabalpur Additional Superintendent of Police M Kathuria told IANS.

Sunil was arrested soon after the incident, he said.

"Though the exact reason behind the killings is not yet known, it seems that Sen, who runs a barbershop, is not mentally fit," he added.
