An Indian man allegedly killed 14 family members, including eight children, with a knife before taking his own life yesterday.
According to CNN News, a police spokesman in the western Indian city of Thane said Husnain Anwar Warekar, age 35, put sedatives in his relatives’ food before slashing their throats with a knife.
The victims included Warekar’s 28-year-old wife and two daughters who are between ages three months and 6, his 65-year-old father and 55-year-old mother, three of his sisters, and six of the sisters’ children.
The family had reportedly gathered for an event at Warekar’s home on Saturday, and was staying overnight.
The motive for the killings is unknown, but an investigation is underway.
