Family of four commits suicide in Shirva
Four members of a family ended their lives in a suicide pact at Padubelle in Shirva police station jurisdiction on Thursday.

According to police, jeweller Shankar Acharya (50), his wife Nirmala (44) and their daughters Shruthi (23) and Shreya (22) ended lives by consuming cyanide at their residence.

Crisis

The police said that the financial crisis may be the reason behind the incident. Neighbours, who also include their extended family members, surprised that they did not come out in the morning as usual. They grew suspicious and realised that some tragedy has struck the family. A man, from whom the family was buying flowers daily, reallised something had gone wrong and the police were informed.

It is said that the marriage of Shruthi—an MBA graduate who was working—was fixed and the family had also decided to book a hall for the marriage on Thursday. A rice plate laced with poison was there inside the house, it is learnt.

The bodies have been sent for post-mortem to KMC, Manipal.
