11 Pakistani Hindu Family Members Found Dead In Jodhpur
The dead included four women and five children, with a family member who was found alive outside the hut at Lodta village of Dechu area.
Eleven members of a family of Pakistani Hindu migrants were found dead in a farm in Jodhpur district of Rajasthan on Sunday morning (August 9). The dead included five children and four women. A member of the family was found alive outside the hut they live in at Lodta village of the Dechu area, over 100 km away from Jodhpur city. However, he had no idea about the incident, Superintendent of Police (SP Rural) Rahul Barhat said. The man claimed he was not aware of what happened inside the hut because he had been sleeping outside. Police also found a note from the spot and is verifying its writing.
“We are yet to ascertain the cause and means of death,” SP Barhat said. “But apparently, all the members appeared to have committed suicide by consuming some chemical in the night.” This was indicated by the smell of some chemical around the hut, Barhat said. “There was neither any injury mark on any of the bodies nor any evidence of any foul play,” the police officer added. “But we have roped in the forensic team and dog squad to arrive at any final conclusion.”
