Pune: In a tragic incident, a 45-year-old
man allegedly killed his three children before committing
suicide here on Tuesday.
Chandrashekhar Janardan Ranavare hanged his kids --
Shreyas (6), Shivam (4) and Komal (8) -- in their home in
Baner area this morning with the help of cloth ropes,
Sub-Inspector M N Walekar said.

Ranavare later hanged himself, he said, adding his
another daughter Dhanashree (10) escaped as the rope got
loosened.
His wife Varsha had left home on November 23 after a
domestic fight and went to her mother`s residence, Walekar
said.

However, it was not clear what was the immediate
provocation for Ranavare to commit the murders, he said.
