In a very shocking incident, two minor children aged 8 and 15 were found dead in a house at Candolim, and a few hours later the father of the children was found hanging from a tree behind their house.
The incident came to light last night. The mother had gone to a wedding yesterday. When she came back from the wedding in the evening, she found the door locked from the inside.
After waiting for some time, the woman called her relatives who stayed in the neighbourhood. On opening the door, the children were found lying unconscious in the apartment.
They were shifted to Candolim PHC, where they were declared brought dead.
The father of the children, who was initially missing, was later found hanging from a tree behind the house.
Police are suspecting it to be a case of murder. The case was reported at Candolim Police Station yesterday night at about 10.30 pm.
The family of four stayed in the house at Candolim. The bodies were shifted to GMC for postmortem.
