Coim­bat­ore: Day after two girls were found dead at their house in Masakkali­palayam, the city po­lice ar­rested the 45-year-old fa­ther for beat­ing and stran­gu­lat­ing them. Pad­man­a­ban (45), a mar­ket­ing ex­ec­u­tive with a pri­vate firm, was a res­i­dent of Masakkali­palayam. On Thurs­day night, after killing his two daugh­ters — P He­mavarshini (15), a Class X stu­dent, and PSrija(8),a Class III stu­dent—he fled. The spe­cial teams on the look­out for Pad­man­a­ban man­aged to ar­rest him near Pee­lamedu on Fri­day evening. Dur­ing the course of in­ves­ti­ga­tion, he told the po­lice that he was frus­trated after his wife be­came par­tially paral­ysed. “After Pad­man­a­ban’s wife be­came par­tially paral­ysed, she was not able to take care of her chil­dren prop­erly. He be­came an al­co­holic only after his wife be­came paral­ysed,” po­lice said. ENS
