"All three of them took the same substance. Later, Rao strangled his wife and daughter to make sure that they died and later threw himself under a train," Kadapa sub-divisional police officer M D Sharif told PTI.

Rao had alleged that the revenue records of 3.1 acres of land which purportedly belonged to him was altered into the ownership of some other persons.

However, Sharif noted that when this claim was verified with the Kadapa revenue divisional officer (RDO), it was established that the parcel of land did not belong to Rao but to the government.

Police registered a case under Section 174 of the CrPC.
