Man kills daughter after quarrel with wife

A man in Odisha killed his five-year-old daughter and critically injured three family members after a quarrel with his wife, police said Monday.

After the crime, he attempted to commit suicide by consuming poison and hanging himself from a ceiling fan but was rescued by his neighbours, Rashmi Ranjan Sahoo, inspector in-charge of Airfield police station told IANS.

Subodh works in Keonjhar district. His daughter, wife, father, brother and other family members were staying in the rented house in the state capital.
