Two minor daughters and their father were found hanging at home in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh.
In a gut-wrenching incident that happened in UP yesterday, a man and his two daughters were set up to hang at their house in the Shahpur area of Gorakhpur on Tuesday. The police said that the deceased were identified as Jitendra Srivastava( 45), an occupant of the Geeta Vatika area of Shahpur, and his daughters, Manya and Manwi- both minors.
The deceased Jitendra’s wife had failed due to cancer about two years ago, and he used to run a tailor’s shop from his house. Jitendra’s father, Omprakash Srivastava, who works as a security guard, returned from work on Tuesday morning, and found Jitendra and his two daughters hanging from the ceiling in different apartments, the police said. Gorakhpur SSP Gaurav Grover said that the matter has been recorded and the bodies have been transferred for post-mortem examination.
“Principally, it appears to be a suicide.” “We’ve initiated a probe, and the statements of other family members are being recorded to ascertain the exact reason behind three members of the family taking the extreme step of ending their lives,” Grover told ANI. A similar incident took place in the middle of April this year when five family members were found dead in UP’s Prayagraj. A thirty-eight-year-old woman with her three daughters was found with their throats slit open in their bedroom while the husband was found hanging from a noose in the courtyard.
Further than any other means to commit suicide, “hanging” has held sway for over half a century as the most unfathered system to end one’s life. Also, frustration over family-related issues and ails drove Indians to snuff out their lives. According to the latest report of the National Crime Records Bureau for 2019 21,4.7 crore people, including more than 17.56 lakh women, ended their lives by taking expedient and reasonable means to commit self-murder, for which records are available with the organization.
Many similar incidents of suicide and murder have occurred over a period of time, and there has been no deduction as to why this atrocity occurred in the first place.
