Three daughters killed by their father
[TamilNet, Tuesday, 07 July 1998, 23:59 GMT]
A father killed three of his daughters and then attempted to commit suicide on July the 4th in Alaveddi north, Jaffna.
The man, S.Vijayakumar had apparently done this when he found out about the alleged misconduct of his two daughters. He has since been admitted to the intensive care unit at Jaffna hospital.
The dead have been identified as Logini Vijeyakumar, 19 (who was handicapped and unable to speak), Lingathevi, 17, and Thayalini, 15.
His wife and son were not home when the incident occurred, the sources added.
