The family was reportedly under a lot of pressure due to a debt of Rs 50 lakh and losses in business
After 11 people of the same family allegedly committed suicide in Delhi's Burari area a few days ago, a similar incident has come to light in Jharkhand on Saturday.
In the latest incident, which took place in the Hazaribagh district of Jharkhand, six members of the same family killed themselves. The deceased were identified as Mahavir Maheswari, 70, his wife Kiran Maheshwari, 65, their son Naresh Agrawal, 40, his wife 38-year-old Priti Agrawal, and their two kids — Aman, 8, and Anjali, 6.
Initial investigations attributed the suicides to a huge burden of debt on the family. According to reports, the family was under a lot of pressure due to a debt of Rs 50 lakh and losses in business.
A suicide note was found near the Hazaribagh Khajani pond. The neighbours said that the family had a dry fruit shop. As a result of heavy losses in business, there was discord in the family. The police are, however, probing all angles to the incident.
