    After few hours of search, I found signal-hook. The issue now is it will not kill process immediately, instead it will wait until the sleep function is done.

    If you're interested in the techniques people use here, you might take a look at signalfd - which gives you a way to read signals as-if through a file pipe (so you can use it with things like select/epoll loops) - or signal-hook's implementation of the signal-pipe pattern (which makes use of the fact that write is on the list of async-signal-safe system calls).
