Dehra Dun: A man allegedly killed his son and seriously injured his daughter by hitting them repeatedly with an LPG cylinder here on Friday.

The incident took place when Chandan, a labourer, suddenly took the LPG cylinder in his hands and hit his three-year-old son Akhilesh and 8-month-old daughter Ruchika with it, injuring them seriously, police said.

Hearing their cries, the neighbours rushed to the spot and took the children to a nearby hospital where the boy died, while Ruchika is battling for life.
