Kailali, Sept 23: A man has killed his three-year-old daughter before taking his own life in Gauriganga municipality-5 in the district, said the police.
Local resident Ram Bahadur Kalel, 25, poisoned his daughter, Anuska and later poisoned himself, said Dakshya Kumar Basnet, spokesperson for the district police office.
Kalel and his daughter were sleeping in the house of the former’s brother on that fateful night.
After hearing weird screams from the room where the deceased father and daughter were, Kalel’s brother’s family broke open the room and found Kalel unconscious.
