A 32-year-old man killed his wife and two children in Lucknow and spent three nights beside their dead bodies until a foul smell turned him in, the police said on Sunday.

Ram Lagan strangled his wife Jyoti, 30, with her dupatta in front of their children over the suspicion that she was having an extra-marital affair. Then he killed his two children – Payal (6) and Anand (3) – at their rented home so they don’t spill the beans before the cops.

The incident occurred in the Saravan Nagar area of Lucknow’s Bijnor locality.

“Ram Lagan was married for seven years. He suspected that his wife was in an illicit relationship and used to spy on her when she spoke on the phone. This often led to arguments between them. They had an argument on March 28 night as well, after which he killed her and the children,” said TS Singh, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South).

The accused spent the night in the same room after the triple murder, unperturbed by the fact that his wife and children lay dead right beside him. He left the next morning and returned by night.

This went on for three days, at which point his landlord discovered an unpleasant stench emanating from his home. According to the police, he entered the house unlocked and discovered the three bodies stuffed into a sack.

Ram Lagan told his neighbors that his family had gone to a relative’s house to celebrate Holi because he was unable to remove the bodies from the crowded area. He has admitted to his crime and been taken into custody by the police. A post-mortem has been ordered for the bodies.

There is currently more investigation being done.
