Four members of a family allegedly committed suicide on Saturday by consuming insecticide at their house in the Government Colony in suburban Bandra, police said.

The incident came to light in the afternoon today and police said that the family might have committed suicide sometime after midnight, a police official said.

The family lived in Building no.2 in the Government Colony in Bandra (east) and a suicide note recovered from the house mentioned that they were taking this step due to financial woes, said Rajendra Patil, Senior Inspector, Kherwadi police station.

He identified the deceased as Rajesh Bhingare(45), wife Ashwini(40) and sons Tushar(23) and Gaurang(19).

"Neighbours informed the police who rushed to the spot and then sent all the four to Sion Hospital where doctors declared them dead on arrival. They had consumed insecticide," Patil said.

Yesterday, three members of a family had allegedly committed suicide, reportedly due to depression over their daughter's death, in Machchimar Nagar in south Mumbai's Cuffe Parade area.
