Just a month after mass suicide by 11 members of Bhatia family in Sant Nagar of Burari in the national capital region, a similar case was reported from Ranchi in Jharkhand. Seven members of a family allegedly committed suicide in the state’s capital. The family was living near Kanke police station area and police have begun the investigation into the alleged mass suicide, reported Zee News. The cause behind this extreme step is not yet established by the police officials.
Senior Superintendent of Police Anis Gupta investigating the Ranchi deaths case said that prima facie, it appears to be a case of suicide. He further added, “five adults and two infants were found dead in their home near Kanke police station.”
This is not the only incident of mass suicide after Burari horror. A family of six, earlier this month had committed suicide in their apartment. In fact, the mass suicide case was again reported from Jharkhand. The family belonged to Hazaribag. According to a Times of India report, the family took this extreme step after alleged financial stress. Police suspect that because of pecuniary pressure all six members committed suicide.
Both cases are reported within a month’s span after 11 members of Bhatia family died under mysterious conditions in Burari on July 1. The notes recovered from the crime site revealed ‘spiritual’ angle to deaths. It was later confirmed by CCTV footage of the area that family allegedly committed suicide. However, the police are still investigating the case to confirm the ‘suicide’ theory which is otherwise refuted by kin of deceased.
All 10 members of the family were found hanging from an iron mesh with their eyes, legs, hands, and ears tied. However, the eleventh member of the family, the matriarch, Narayani Devi was found lying on the floor with the sign of strangulation.
