The post-mortem report of 10 people of a family, who were found dead inside their house in north Delhi's Burari on July 1 under mysterious circumstance, has confirmed that they committed suicide by hanging. The autopsy report of Narayani Devi, the head of the family, who was found dead in another room, is yet to come as doctors have differed over the cause of her death.
Despite the post-mortem report confirming suicide, the intriguing case which has attracted nation-wide headlines due to stunning details which have emerged in police investigation ever since the 11 bodies were found is yet to see a closure.
Meanwhile, adding to the mystery behind the mass suicide, an anonymous letter received by the Delhi Police claimed that the deceased family used to visit one 'dadhi wale' baba. The police is yet to verify the details mentioned in the letter.
The registers recovered from the Chundawat family's residence in north Delhi's Burari has mentioned about "wandering souls," while apprehending that the family might not see the next Diwali, said a senior police official.
One of the deceased, Lalit Singh Chundwat, had visitations from his father's spirit during which he would act and talk like his father and dictate notes, the police official said.
In a November 11, 2017 entry in the register, Lalit had mentioned about "someone's mistakes" behind the family's failure to -attain something.
"Dhanteras has already been celebrated. You are far from achieving something due to someone's mistakes. There is a possibility that you might not see the next Diwali. Don't ignore the warnings. (Dhanteras aakar chali gayi. Kisi ki purani galti ke aabhaav se kuch prapti se door ho. Agli Diwali na mana sako. Chetavni ko nazar andaaz karne ke bajai gaur kiya karo)," the entry said.
The notes also mentioned about 'other' souls accompanying the spirit of Lalit's father, who had died in 2007, and how those spirits are still yearning for salvation.
"Four souls are still wandering with me. If you improve yourself, these souls will be freed. You feel that by completing all the rituals in Haridwar, the souls achieve salvation. I am accompanied by the souls of others also," said the note written in Hindi on July 19, 2015.
Ten of the 11 members of the family were found hanging from an iron-mesh of the ceiling on July 1, while the body of 77-year-old family matriarch Narayan Devi was lying on the floor in another room of the house.
