This horrifying incident in Jaipur has brought back the memories of the Burari deaths when 11 family members were found dead at their residence in mysterious circumstances.

On July 1, 2018, the police had discovered ten family members hanging while the oldest family member, the grandmother, was found strangled. The police said that the 11 family members died due to an "accident that occurred during a ritual". 

The family believed in occult practices and one of the family members allegedly told others that they will be saved by a soul, the police had said then.

"Under religious and spiritual influences, a lot of lifestyle decisions get affected, especially in cultures like ours. Some of these changes are extreme, leading to self harming or harming others," Nimesh Desai, director of Delhi's Institute of Human Behavior and Allied Sciences (IHBAS), told PTI.
