    Suicide cases are crossing all time records, ever since BJP came to power. Its a clear sign of financial burden due to unemployment, high prices on fuel & gas and other basic commodities. Ache din still remains only as a promise.

    Lust, rejection and dejection spirits which are not divine but evil spirits kill. Forgiveness, Self control, Patience...are the divine spirits give life to others also to self.

    This is a sad case... Depression can play havoc in anyone's life... Poor children had to depart like this... We do not know the reason why Anjali ditched him after having 4 kids from marriage... RIP to the young souls... Fellow readers please show humanity and do not bring politics in this tragedy...

    When children were there at their grand mother's house what was the necessity for him to go there and kill the children......When person is depressed, why does he get feeling to kill the girls and dumping under the seat ??? Feel very sorry to hear this. May the departed souls of these tiny tots rest in peace....

    Why do such incidents happen often these days? It's really sad to see that children are ae no longer safe with their own parents. How can a mother elope when she is the mother of 4 kids? didn't she think about the extent of trauma and humiliation to be faced by her family? How can a father kill such young daughters. God save us and bless all families to abstain from committing such horrific acts

    kujuma kodial ,by shooting and killing him problems are not solved .Someone should have convinced him not to drink alcohol and take his life under control with all that his wife cheated him.Nowadays we hear more cheating and killing ,no proper home for children.He must have gone mad with wifes affair.Why he killed children God alone knows.must have under alcohol or gone mad ?May other children atleast are safe .Poor childrens soul may rest in Heaven.He couldnt bear may be without wife.
