police say that Neeraj strangled his wife and son to death
A police case is underway after an Indian husband was found dead, along with his wife and their son at their home in Mathura, Uttar Pradesh, on February 7, 2021.
According to police, the man killed his wife and 11-year-old son before taking his own life.
The matter came to light when neighbours could not hear any movement coming from the house. Concerned, they called the police.
Police arrived at the scene and forced their way into the property.
They found the wife and son lying on a bed while the Indian husband was discovered hanging from the ceiling in another room.
Police identified the husband as 33-year-old Neeraj Goyal, a grocery business owner.
Whilst searching the house, police could not find a suicide note.
However, police say that Neeraj strangled his wife and son to death before going into another room and committing suicide.
During the preliminary investigation, police believe there had been tension between Neeraj and his wife.
It was revealed that Neeraj was the woman’s third husband.
Superintendent of Police Prakash Singh said that Neeraj tied the knot with the woman sometime in 2017. After their marriage, there were regular disputes.
He went on to say that it is likely that Neeraj took the extreme steps due to the ongoing disputes.
The three bodies were transported to the hospital for a post-mortem.
Evidence continues to be gathered and police say that the reason for the double murder-suicide will be known once they have the post-mortem results.
In another case of suicide, a man took his own life in April 2020, however, the reason was not known until January 2021.
Leela Jadhav had been cleaning out her son’s cupboard when she discovered a suicide note.
It was dated April 2019, meaning that her son Mahesh had been planning his suicide for a year.
In the note, it stated that he married a woman named Ambika Marathe in 2018. However, a few months after their marriage, he developed erectile dysfunction and Ambika started calling him impotent.
He went on to say that his wife began having an affair with a man called Kishor Bhil and that she would call him to their home regularly.
The suicide note alleged that on one occasion, Ambika and Kishor had sex in front of Mahesh to taunt him for his impotence.
Leela alerted the police and a case was registered against the woman and her lover.
Police arrested Ambika and Kishor and a case of abetment to suicide was registered.
