Four members of the same family living in Tarkeshwar Municipality-2, Padamsal, where Gorkhas became their permanent home, were found dead at home on Monday morning.In the morning, when no one from the family came out and the house was locked inside, the neighbors informed the police. When the police saw that four people had been brutally murdered inside, the family did not allow everyone to wake up.
Sunita’s elder sister told that many times husband and wife went to the police due to quarrels and later returned home with the agreement that they will not make mistakes again.The bodies of 41-year-old Dinesh Pandey, his wife 39-year-old Sunita, 13-year-old daughter Ashika and 8-year-old son Ashiq were found in a terrible condition when the police broke the door. In the suicide note found at the scene, Dinesh has mentioned that he was forced to commit suicide after killing his wife and children.
Dinesh and his wife Sunita, who returned to Nepal only a few years ago after living in Kuwait for 12 years, have not had a good family relationship since a few years and it has been revealed in the preliminary investigation of the police that the conflict that arose from that took the form of a gruesome murder. A police officer involved in the investigation said that in the suicide note, Dinesh had mentioned that his relationship with his wife had deteriorated, that he was trying to grab property with his in-laws, and that he had been detained by the police on charges of domestic violence.
According to a police officer involved in the investigation, Dinesh hit his wife and children with a sharp weapon on his stomach, chest and head. According to the police, the family dispute reached the Balaju police three times and Maharajganj circle once, the last time Dinesh tried to sell the house he was living in without letting his wife know, but the house was in Sunita’s name and she refused to sell it. Deceased Sunita had even got a visa to go to UK for ‘seasonal work’.
