Rajkot, June 2: Distraught by domestic quarrels between his wife and mother, a 32-year-old man Dhaval Makwana hanged himself to death in Akshardham Apartments here on Thursday.
Seeing her husband hanging from the ceiling, his wife rang up her sister-in-law, informed her about the suicide, and then set herself and her son on fire by pouring kerosene, says I B Ajmeri, police inspector.
As neighbours rang up the police and fire brigade on seeing smoke coming out of the apartment, police gatecrashed into the apartment to find a macabre sight.
The husband's body was hanging from the ceiling and the half-burnt bodies of the woman and her son were lying on the floor.
Dhaval's mother was not at the apartment at the time of this incident.
