Suryapet: All six persons in a family including two women, two children and two men ended their lives by consuming pesticide in a suicide pact at Kasturi Bazar in Suryapet on the intervening night of Sunday-Monday.
A visitor to the house found all the six family members lying dead in the morning. Few bottles of pesticide were also found near their bodies.
The dead were Kasturi Janardhan(59), Chandrakala(50), Prabhatam(30), Ashok(25) Siri(5) and Rutvika(2). Severe financial problems are said to be the reason for the family's tragic end.
The elder son of Janardhan, Suresh is said to have incurred huge losses in share market trading and he had gone missing for some time now. He went to Pune saying he had some business work but never came back. Doubting that he must have died due to financial crisis, all his family members committed suicide.
Police are investigating the case.
