"Ram Murat first attacked his wife Urmila (35) with a knife and then his son Ankit (4), critically injuring the two.
The child was declared dead on arrival by the doctors at district hospital, while his wife is battling for life.
At around 4 am, when Urmila and the child were fast asleep, he repeatedly attacked them with a sharp-edged knife.
