New Delhi: Three members of a family were found dead on late Saturday evening inside a flat in southwest Delhi’s Vasant Vihar area.

According to the police, the flat was locked from the inside. When they entered the house, they found the gas cylinder ‘partially opened’, reported news agency ANI. A suicide note was also recovered from the house.

“Three bodies were found lying on the bed in the house and three small ‘angithi’ were kept in the room. It is presumed that they have died due to suffocation,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (southwest) Manoj C was quoted as saying by PTI.

The deceased have been identified as Manju and her daughters Anshika and Anku.

According to the house-help, Manju, Anshika and Anku were suffering from depression since April 2021 due to the death of the house owner (Manju’s husband). 

The president of the society M David also told ANI that the family had made a “smoke chamber” in the house with “angithi” and the police have taken the bodies with them.

“After receiving a call at 8.55PM today, the police staff along with the SHO reached Vasant Apartment in Vasant Vihar and found all the doors and windows closed from every side. On checking the inner room three dead bodies were found lying on the bed and three small ‘angithis’ were kept in the room. It is presumed that they died due to suffocation,” ANI reported citing police officials.

Further investigation is underway.
