India - Man kills parents, 7 nieces, and 5 family members

Report says a 35-year-old Indian identified as Hasnil Warekar murdered 14 members of his family, including his parents and 7 small children, in the early hours on Sunday, February 28, before taking his own life.

Police says the incident took place after the family members came together  in his home at Kasarvadavil in Thane district, 32 kilometres from Mumbai.

"The attacker, Hasnin Anwar Warekar killed himself after slitting the throats of all other family members including his parents," a Thane police spokesman, Gajanan Laxman Kabdule, said"

Hasnin's sister Subiya Bharmal and only surviving member of the family  escaped the attack after recieving wounds from his knife. She is currently on admission in one of the hospitals around.

"We still haven't been able to speak with the attacker's sister who is in deep trauma at a city hospital," Mr Kabule added.

So many contradictory reports have been made by the media, as to what provoked the situation.

"Prima facie evidence suggests that the accused bolted all the doors of the house and murdered his family while they were asleep with a knife that we found near his body," Ashutosh Dumbre, joint commissioner of Than police, said.

Neighbours told The Hindu that they heard Subiya's screams around 3 a.m. When they rushed to the house, a single-storey structure, they found Hasnin hanging by a rope. They immediately contacted the police and rushed Subiya to the hospital. 

The police have sent the bodies for post-mortem examination. They have also sent food samples from the house for forensic analysis to determine if the food was mixed with any drug.

Mr Dumbre said initial investigations have not been able to detect the cause of the family dispute, and the reasons for the meetingin Hasnin's house .

He worked as a Chartered  accountant with a private company in Mumbai.
