Indian-origin man strangles son to death

An Indian-origin man in South Africa allegedly strangled his 7-year-old son to death, while his 4-year-old daughter watched in terror has been arrested. The man is expected to appear in the court on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old man was separated from his wife, but a court granted him right to visit his children.

The suspect’s identity has not been revealed due to South Africa’s child protection law.

The mother reported to police officers after the father failed to bring the children back to home at the scheduled time, an uncle of the children said.

Police officers found the father wandering around a park with both the kids in his arms. He claimed that the boy was asleep. The children were rushed to a hospital where the boy was declared dead. His sister described how her father choked him.

Tracy Sinayhakah, who is the grandmother of those children said that she had received a chilling WhatsApp message from the father just before the alleged killing, asking her to tell his estranged wife what she was 'going to lose'.

Lieutenant-Colonel Thulian Zwane said that a murder case has been registered.

The cold blooded murder incident took place earlier this week. The incident has shocked the community of Phoenix, the sprawling township in Durban, which was created during the apartheid era to forcibly resettle the Indian community in the city.
