Six of family found dead in Telangana, police suspects suicide


Hyderabad, September 18: Six members of a family, including two children, allegedly committed suicide at their house in Suryapet town of Telangana on Monday, the police said. The family was reportedly facing a serious financial problem.

Four adult members among the deceased apparently administered a pesticide to the two children, aged four and two years, last night and consumed it themselves, the preliminary probe suggested.
