Four members of a family died in Khempura area of Udaipur Monday after consuming some poisonous substance, police said. A note found at the their house said they were committing suicide of their own free will.
Forty-seven-year–old Vinod Sharma, a teacher, his wife Kalpana (42), daughter Anju (19) and son Nikhil (17) died at a hospital where they were rushed to by the police.
Preliminary investigation shows that Sharma made others consume food-laced with poison before eating the same himself, said deputy SP Bhagwat Singh Hinger.
“We are committing suicide and after our death, our property will belong to my brother Purshotam,” a note found at Sharma’s house read.
The family was under mental stress after Sharma’s elder daughter left the house a few days ago and did not return.
Anju reportedly called some relatives and told them they have consumed poison. The relative informed the police. A team rushed the unconscious victims to the MB Hospital. All of them died during treatment.
The bodies were handed over to Sharma’s brother after post mortem.
In a related incident, Sharma’s mother in-law suffered a cardiac arrest and died while she was on her way from Hindaun city in Karauli district to Udaipur. She was coming to Udaipur to attend the funeral.
