A man killed his wife and three minor daughters and stuffed the woman’s body in a freezer before hanging himself in Uttar Pradesh’s Allahabad late on Monday evening, police said.

Police said 35-year-old Manoj Kushwaha, a resident of Peepalgaon area, was suffering from depression because of a conflict with his family members.

Kushwaha had killed his wife Shweta, 30, on Monday evening and shot his three daughters Preeti, 8, Shivani, 6, and Shreya, 3. He later hung himself to death.

The man’s body was found hanging from a ceiling fan while the bodies of two daughters were found in suitcase and almirah and a third in the room, news agency ANI reported.

“Prima facie, it seems that the man killed his wife and daughters, and later committed suicide. An investigation is underway,” Allahabad’s senior superintendent of police Nitin Tiwari said.
