A man has committed suicide after killing four people, including three of the same family, in Baralekha upazila of Moulvibazar on Sunday.

Police Super Faruk Hussain confirmed the killings to The Daily Samakal.

Locals said the dead were tea workers. They are identified as Joly, wife of the killer, his mother-in-law Lakshmi, neighbor Basanta and his daughter Sheuli.

Police said that in the early hours of Sunday morning, a man named Nirmal started chopping his wife with a sharp weapon in the tea garden area of the remote Uttar Shahbazpur union of the upazila. At that time, her mother-in-law and two neighbours came forward to protect the affected housewife and they were also injured.

All the four died on the spot due to excessive bleeding from a sharp weapon. The killer then committed suicide by hanging on his neck.
