THE POLICE believe that the four members of a family including a couple and their two children, who were found dead on the railway track near Khajuri, was not an accident but an act of suicide.
The couple—Raghuvir Dangi, 40 and wife, Gayatri, 35, resident of Barkheda Baramad village, had left their house in the morning along with the two children.
They had told villagers that they were going to Bhopal to meet their relatives. Some persons had seen the family walking near Bhaunri at around 6.30 pm. They were later found dead here at around 10 pm.
On the basis of interrogation with the deceased’s kin and circumstantial evidence, police surmise that it was a suicide. The bodies were not found at the crossing but nearly 1 km farther on the track, suggesting that they were not trying to cross the track.
The couple was unhappy because they were undergoing financial problems and wanted a share in the ancestral land, police said. However, Raghuvir’s father and brothers were not willing to divide the property. Raghuvir was reportedly upset over the matter. The deceased’s brothers came to Bhopal to take away the bodies for the last rites.
Police are probing the circumstances surrounding the mishapas some villagers told the police that Raghuvir looked frightened in the morning. The police are investigating this aspect as well.
