Four persons of a family including three children were found dead at their home in Nakola village, Kotra block, Udaipur. Initial investigations by the Police suggest it to be a mass suicide facilitated by mental stress or depression.
According to the Police, 45 year old Raysa Gamar, his 14 year old son Vajpai and two daughters Tipuri and Kinjal were found dead on Tuesday morning. Raysa and his kids were found hanging from the ceiling of their house.
SP Udaipur Vikas Sharma said that during the initial investigations it was learnt that Raysa's wife died four years back and his family was under mental stress since than. Though it is not clear yet but than too it is believed that the mental stress is the cause of suicide.
