Govuru Balaraju, a resident of Kunipur, killed his wife Eswari (36) and daughter Mounika (18) by stabbing them at his residence on Tuesday.

Balaraju, after coming back from Dubai, used to torture his wife Eswari suspecting her fidelity. He believed that his daughter helped her mother in maintaining an illicit relationship with another man in the village. Unable to bear this, he attacked his wife and killed her. He murdered Mounika as well when she tried to prevent him from attacking her mother.
