New Delhi: A depressed 43-year-old man strangled his two sons on Wednesday over a domestic problem here in Mahendra Park, police said.
Police said the incident took place around 6 a.m. when Mukesh strangled both Ayush, 15, and Aryan, 8, with a rope and confessed to the police.
The accused Mukesh was in depression since the death of his wife one and a half years ago, police said.
“He was unemployed and was living with his two sons in a house located in Sanjay Nagar of Mahendra Park,” Deputy Commissioner of Police, Vijay Singh told IANS.
Mukesh, who had done some construction in his house a month earlier, was also worried that a team from the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) would come to demolish a portion of the house on Thursday after a complaint from his neighbours, police said.
Police arrested him from his house, Singh said.
Ayush was a student of Class 10, while Aryan studied in Class 8 in the nearby Little Angel Public School, he added.
