Two days after a family of eleven was found dead in North Delhi’s Burari locality, a relative, on 3 July, lashed out at the media for its coverage on the incident.

Speaking to ANI, Sujata Nagpal, daughter of 77-year-old family matriarch Narayani, said the reports on the media regrading the family having indulged in occult practices was false.

Lashing out at the channels for their coverage, she alleged that her family was being made the target of a conspiracy.

She said that the eleven pipes – seen protruding from a wall near the entrance of the house – had been bought for a solar project and ventilation purposes, and were not connected to the deaths.

Rubbishing theories around her family’s death, Nagpal said that although her family was religious, they did not indulge in occult practices of any sort.

The family was religious. They were not involved in occult practices unlike media reports suggest. There is a conspiracy.

On Monday, 2 July, the police discovered notes that detailed the procedure for what appeared to be a “ritual”. The notes reportedly read: “Tie the tape around the eyes securely. Use cotton stoles or saris along with ropes. This should be done between midnight and 1 am on a Thursday or a Saturday.”

While ten bodies from the family were found hanging from an iron rod, the eleventh body – that of Narayani – was found on the floor of an adjacent room. The initial post-mortem report has indicated that all eleven members of the family committed suicide.
