In a shocking turn of events, eleven members of a Pakistani Hindu migrant group were found dead at a farm in Rajasthan’s Jodhpur district on Sunday morning. However, a member of that family was found alive outside that farm Lodta village of Dechu area.
As per Superintendent of Police (Rural) Rahul Barhat “We are yet to ascertain the cause and means of death. But apparently, all the members appeared to have committed suicide by consuming some chemical in the night”.
SP Barhat further added that “There was neither any injury mark on any of the bodies nor any shreds of evidence of any foul play. But we have roped in the forensic team and a dog squad to arrive at any final conclusion. Preliminary information indicated that there was some dispute in the family over some issue.”
The lone family member who escaped this incident said that “he has no idea about the incident, which believed to have happened in the night. However, he said there was a smell of some chemicals around in the hut, suggesting that they consumed something.”
Jodhpur Police is interrogating the survivor, only after that they will be in position to find out that what had led to this incident.
All the family members were Hindu migrants from Pakistan from the Bhil community and had been living on the farm in the village, which they had hired for farming.
It is extremely sad that our migrant brothers and sisters who came from Pakistan have been died under such circumstances. The Rajasthan Government and Police should order a probe to find out the actual reason behind their death and investigate if there is any foul play in this incident.
