New Delhi:

Seventy-seven-year-old Narayan Devi, who was found lying on the floor in the Burari deaths incident, died due to hanging like the other 10 members of the family, as per the post-mortem report.

The bodies of 10 members of the family were found hanging from an iron mesh on July 1, while the body of Narayan Devi was found lying on the floor in another room of the house.

The Delhi Police have received the post-mortem report, a senior police officer said.

A belt was found near Narayan Devi’s body, the officer said.

The post-mortem report has ruled out any foul play and said that she died due to ‘ante-mortem’ hanging, he added.

The report of the 10 other members said that no external injury marks were found on the bodies except for a few scratches and they died due to hanging, the officer had said on Tuesday.

“The final opinion states that the family members died due to ante-mortem hanging,” he added.

Narayan Devi’s daughter Pratibha (57) and two sons—Bhavnesh (50) and Lalit (45) -- were among the deceased.

Bhavnesh’s wife Savita (48) and their three children—Neetu (25), Maneka (23) and Dhirendra (15) -- were also found dead.

The others found dead were Lalit’s wife Tina (42), their 15-year-old son Dushyant and Pratibha’s daughter Priyanka, who got engaged last month and was supposed to get married by the year-end.

The police had also found 11 diaries, which contained “psychological musings” and certain things written about the “road to god”.
