Lucknow, July 27 (IANS) Three members of a Dalit family were killed in Uttar Pradesh’s Jyotiba Phule Nagar Tuesday, police said.
Mukhram, 55, his wife Gyanwati, 50, and their son Rahul, 22, were found murdered inside their house in Dhanaura area, about 300 km from here.

“Prima facie it appears the three died of injuries inflicted by a sharp-edged weapon,” police inspector Sanjay Tiwari told reporters in Jyotiba Phule Nagar.

“We are yet to ascertain the exact reason behind the killings. Investigations are on to nab those involved in the incident,” he said.

Mukhram, who was a fruit vendor, had a tiff with his elder son Rishipal a few months ago over some property dispute. Later, Rishipal started living separately in another house in the same village. He has been untraceable since Tuesday morning.

“Though we are yet to identify the assailants, we cannot rule out the alleged involvement of Rishipal in the incident. We are investigating the case on the lines of family dispute also,” said Tiwari.
