A retired armyman has been sentenced to life imprisonment for killing his three daughters and making an attempt on his wife’s life in Nagla Deepa village of Mathura, Uttar Pradesh in 2013.

Additional District Judge I D Dubey awarded the punishment to the convict on Friday and imposed a fine of Rs 30,000 on him.

According to the prosecution, the convict shot his daughters aged seven, five and three years, who were playing outside their house in Nagla Deepa village in 2013.

When the mother attempted to save the girls, she was also shot at by the convict.

Assistant government counsel Virendra Lavania said two of the girls died on the spot, while the third succumbed to her injuries in the hospital.

The convict’s wife and mother turned hostile during the course of the trial, Lavania said. But the court convicted the man on the basis of circumstantial evidence.
