Indian-origin father held over kids' death

An Indian-origin father, who had gone missing with his two sons, is being questioned by police over their death in Ireland. Sanjeev Chada (43), along with Eoghan (10) and Ruairi (5) went missing after leaving the family home at Ballinkillen in Bagenalstown in the Irish county of Carlow on Sunday evening. The boys were found dead on Monday in the boot of the family car, crashed by their father outside Westport in Mayo county. According to local media reports, police are questioning Chada on suspicion that he murdered his children then tried to take his own life by crashing his car into a wall.

The father, who has been described by his neighbours as a ‘prefect devoted dad’, is believed to have strangled the kids. The Irish Independent has reported that Chada is linked to a 50,000 Euro embezzlement case in Carlow and an investigation is about to begin. Officers in Mayo said though Chada is in an ‘extremely distressed’ state, he will be arrested on suspicion of murder when doctors say he is fit enough to be discharged. He had to be cut from the wreckage of his car. Reports say he was found in the car with a makeshift noose around his neck and was taken from the scene of the accident directly to the hospital.
