Upset over a petty scuffle at home, a man from Ambala in Haryana first threw his two children into a fire. Later, he himself jumped into it, police said on Tuesday.
On Monday, Deepak Kumar got upset over a quarrel at his home. He then took his children to the roof and pushed them — a six-year-old boy and a four-year-old girl — into leaping flames of dry dung. He himself then jumped into the fire, according to a complaint filed with police.
The neighbours took the three to a nearby hospital. From there they were referred to PGIMER in Chandigarh, police said. The children are stated to be out of danger. However, the condition of accused Deepak was serious, police said.
A case has been registered and an investigation is underway, assistant sub-inspector of police, Balbir Singh, said.
