“There is a smell of some chemical around in the hut and it appears that they consumed it to commit suicide,” said SP (Rural) Rahul Barhat.
He further added that there were no injury marks on any of the bodies and any there was no evidence suggesting any foul play.
“But still, we have roped in FSL team and a dog squad to make sure that there was no foul play and it was a suicide.
Interestingly, one of the members of the family, who claimed to have slept outside the hut, was found alive but with no clues as to what exactly happened inside in the night.
“Once we interrogate him, we would be in a position to find out that what had led to this incident,” he said adding that in the preliminary interrogation, he claimed that since he had been sleeping outside, he had no idea and learnt about the incident only in the morning.
Barhat said that all the family members were Hindu migrants from Pakistan and belonged to the Bheel community. They had been living on the farm in the village which they had taken on rent for farming.
