Ahmedabad: A city-based realtor shot dead his wife and two teenage daughters in a fit of rage after he had a fight with his wife over his failing business. He fired at them using his licensed revolver and himself called up the police control room to inform the cops about the murder.

Dharmesh Shah was a well-to-do real estate developer who lived with his wife and two daughters at Ratnam Towers near Judges Bungalows road at Bodakdev. It is believed that he was burdened with debt after his business ventures had failed. He shot dead his wife Amisha and daughters Heli and Diksha in their flat at around 7 AM in the morning on Tuesday. He then called up the police control room at around 8 AM and informed them of the murders. The cops rushed to the spot and found the bodies lying in a pool of blood with Dharmesh seated beside them.

The police are currently interrogating Dharmesh to know more about the motive behind his step. It is believed that his domestic life too was going through turmoil and fights between the couple were a common thing and probably one such argument might have enraged Dharmesh to kill his family. He might have planned to kill himself after killing his family but couldn't do so and thus informed the police about his actions.
