Aurangabad: A 35-year-old man surrendered before the Peth-Beed police station on Sunday and confessed to killing his wife and two sons in the Shukrawarpeth area of Beed, about 130 km from here.
The arrested accused has been identified as Santosh Kokane, a salesman, while the deceased are Sangita (31), Sandesh (10) and Mayur (7).
Beed superintendent of police Harssh Poddar said: “The motive was that Santosh suspected his wife of having an extra-marital relationship.”
