Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Police officials report that Three-year-old Rishabh’s refusal to leave his neighbour’s home without partaking ‘prasad’ ended up saving his life on Saturday morning. His parents and sister appear to have killed themselves as part of a ‘suicide pact’ at their home in south Delhi. They said Rishab’s parents, Vicky and Lalita, along with his six-year-old sister Ranchi, are suspected to have consumed poison over an alleged property dispute on Saturday morning.
Police officials and family members said it appears that Vicky led the suicide pact due to a property dispute with his father. By the time police arrived, the three had allegedly consumed poison, most likely in the form of capsules. The couple and their daughter were rushed to different hospitals, but none of them could be saved, said Chinmoy Biswal, deputy commissioner of police (southeast).
