Police also said that their 12-year-old daughter was found unconscious in another room. She was taken to a nearby hospital, where she is recuperating. According to police, the man, Ajay (38) was found hanging from the ceiling fan. “Prime facie it appears to be a case of killing-cum-suicide. The bodies of Ajay’s wife, Manju (35), and his son, Magan, were found on the bed. Ajay’s mother was sleeping in another room when the incident took place,” a police officer said.
DCP (Dwarka) Shibesh Singh said the bodies have been sent for post-mortem. The incident came to light when his family members went to the house and found him hanging. “A suicide note was recovered from the spot, which was addressed to Ajay’s mother. In the note, he said he was depressed and apologised for taking the extreme step,” a senior police officer said.
Police said Ajay had been depressed ever since his brother committed suicide over a year ago. He was also facing financial trouble, police said. “His wife, son and daughter had strangulation marks on their necks. Police are probing if Manju was killed or she committed suicide as well. We are also probing whether the children were given some poisonous substance,” the officer added
FAMILY COMMITS SUICIDE; DAUGHTER SAVED
According to the police, Ajay (38) was found hanging from the ceiling fan in his room. The bodies of his wife Manju (35) and son Magan were found in the bed. In another room, his 12-year-old daughter was found lying in bed. She was rushed to a hospital and is undergoing treatment.
A senior officer said that prima facie, it appears to be a case of killing-cum-suicide. “Ajay’s elder brother’s family lives in the neighbourhood. The brother’s children had gone to Ajay’s home to ask Magan to play with them. When they reached there,
they found Ajay hanging from a fan while the other members were unconscious.
Their neighbours rushed them to separate hospitals. The children were rushed to one hospital and their parents to another.”
The couple and their son were declared dead while the daughter was saved, police said. Shibesh Singh, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Dwarka), said the bodies had been sent for postmortem and the daughter was undergoing treatment.
“A suicide note addressed to Ajay’s mother and sister was found from the spot. It read that Ajay was depressed. Ajay worked as a property dealer. Around one and a half years ago, his elder brother committed suicide and since then Ajay had been looking after his brother’s family,” said a senior police officer.
The officer added that Ajay spiraled into depression after his brother’s death and was facing financial issues in his business.
As per the preliminary enquiry, police suspect that he was reeling under the pressure of running two families and took the extreme step. His wife, son and daughter had strangulation marks on their necks. Police are probing whether Manju was killed. It is also being probed whether the children were given some poisonous substance.
Kerala Family Keeps Dead Man’s Body In House For 3 Months
Police in Kerala are probing a bizarre incident where a dead man’s body was not buried for three months by his family in the belief he would come back to life.
Police found the body of V. Seyed, 50, who worked for a while in a Middle East country and after his return worked as a religious teacher, kept in the house in Mallapuram.
Following complaints that there was no response from the house, the police on Wednesday broke open the door and were shocked to find the man’s body reduced to a skeleton on the floor and his wife, two sons and a daughter were sitting in prayer around it.
The local councillor who was present at the time when the door was forced open by police said all the four were seen praying around the body.
The police took them into custody and sent the body for autopsy.
The family according to locals never had any contact with anyone and always kept to themselves.
Speaking to IANS on Thursday, a police official attached to the Kolathur Police station said from preliminary findings they do not suspect anything fishy.
“The family was under the belief that the dead man would come back to life and all of them were praying,” said the police official who did not wish to be identified.
The official said after taking the statements of the family members they were asked to go.
“We are now waiting for the cause of the death. If it’s a natural death, then there might not be anything else to do in the case,” said the official.
The police moved the body, which over the past three months had been completely reduced to a skeleton, to the Government Medical College at Manjeri near here.
The family never maintained any relations with neighbours and hence nobody bothered at their behaviour of remaining aloof from the society.
The police have recommended counselling for the family
