During the incident at about 6pm on Saturday, the man, who was working outstation, had rushed home after calls to his 39-year-old wife went unanswered.
To his horror, he found that his wife had died and his daughter was lying on her body.
A neighbour said the man's wife had gone to seek medical treatment a few days ago, adding that the doctor wanted to admit her into a hospital.
