A man and his daughter died while his wife is hospitalised in critical condition after the family allegedly entered into a suicide pact following his young son’s demise who was pursuing MBBS in Russia.

Bhagwan Das (48), his daughter Sarita, 20, and wife Sharda, 48, consumed poison at their Khera Dabar house in Jafarpur Kalan area.

“Police reached the spot after getting a PCR call at around 7.15 AM”, said Surender Kumar, DCP (south West).

Neighbours and relatives, who discovered the three lying unconscious, rushed them to Rao Tula Ram Hospital.

Doctors declared Bhagwan Das and Sarita dead while Sharda is undergoing treatment and is in a serious condition.

The family was depressed after the death of Bhagwan Das’ son due to heart attack a fortnight ago. He was a first year MBBS student in Russia, police said.
