Financial crisis forced a 35-year-old dance instructor to try to kill himself and his family by consuming a poisonous substance and using a sharp-edged weapon, police said Tuesday. The son died.
Dance teacher Ajay drank milk mixed with alprax tablets and also gave it to his wife Ritu, 30, daughter Vedika, 9, and son Krishna, 8 around 11 p.m. Monday in his Bhola Nath Nagar house of Farsh Bazar area in east Delhi.
"Around midnight, Ajay cut the throats of his wife, daughter and son and also slashed his left wrist and throat with the help of a dagger," said a police officer.
The officer said Ajay then sent an SMS about the suicide to his brother-in-law, Satbir, and fixed its timer around 4 a.m.
"Upon receiving the SMS, Satbir and Ajay's sister, Dipti, rushed to his place and broke open the main door. They made a PCR call after finding the family lying on a bed," said the officer.
Policemen took the four to Hedgewar Hospital where Krishna was declared brought dead.
Ajay, his wife and daughter were referred to the Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital where they are undergoing treatment.
Vedika is a class IV student while Krishna was in the second standard.
