Police have arrested a man accused of killing his father in a dispute over the custody of his children.
The 34-year-old, identified as a resident of the village of Dhuwaja, allegedly set fire to his father’s house and burned the house to the ground.
The accused was apprehended at the village’s Baniyas Road, a popular shopping and dining spot.
Police said he also allegedly killed his two other daughters.
He is facing charges of murder and kidnapping.
A woman who claimed that she was the victim of a robbery by the accused in February told police that she saw the accused’s family members at a local temple with a knife in one hand and a gun in the other.
