In yet another shocking incident, a forensic doctor in Kanpur of Uttar Pradesh allegedly murdered his wife and children owing to 'fears' of the recently discovered Covid-19 variant Omicron.

Identified as Sushil Singh, a senior forensics professor at a Kanpur medical college first strangled his wife Chandraprabha (50), and then smashed the heads of his daughter Khushi Singh (16) and son Shikhar Singh (21) with a hammer on Friday, according to reports.

He then fled from his posh flat in the Kalyanpur neighbourhood. The doctor also informed his brother about the killings and left a suicide note in the room.

Officials also found the accused's notebook at the crime scene, in which he mentions the murder of his family. He also appears to have written about the Omicron variant, claiming that 'now, there will be no need to count dead bodies,' and that 'now, corona would kill everyone.'
