A court in the district today awarded death sentence to a man after finding him guilty of hacking his wife and daughter to death last year. Describing the act as cruel, Ambah tehsil Additional Sessions Judge P C Gupta sentenced Anil Sakhwar (30), a resident of Manpur village, to death for the murder of his wife Manisha (28) and daughter Anushka (2).
Additional public prosecutor Ramniwas Tomar told PTI that Anil was not getting along well with Manisha for some time. On February 7, 2014, following a quarrel, he attacked his wife and the daughter with an axe. While Anushka died on the way to the hospital, Manisha succumbed during the treatment, said Tomar. Anil had fled from the spot but was later arrested.
