AN Indian woman is being investigated after her husband hanged both their daughters before killing himself in a twisted act of revenge, police have said.
Rishikant Kudupalli, 40, sent sick pictures on WhatsApp showing the dead bodies of the kids to his estranged partner Pragati who was reportedly having an affair, according to cops.

The killer’s family are blaming the Pragati for the deaths prompting police to launch a criminal case against her and her alleged lover.
Police could charge the grieving woman for murder and abetment to suicide, it has been reported.
Pragati has reportedly left her husband and daughters 18-month-old Kartiki and six-year-old Narayani to elope with her new love, local media says.
But her life changed forever when Rishikant sent images showing the dead bodies of their children at the family home in Ballarpur, central India.
She contacted her dad when she received the disturbing message who then phoned the Rishikant’s brother – who along with neighbours broke into the house.
They found three bodies and alerted police.
