The police had initially registered an accidental death report (ADR). But the medical report later revealed that Khan had intentionally given his wife Raziya and children Sarfaraz, 7, and Atika, 3, poison to kill them, he said.

Khan used to run a grocery store in the area and had allegedly taken the extreme step as he was facing losses in his business, the official said. The deaths came to light when Khan did not open his store at the usual time and one of his relatives came to check on him, and peeped into the house and saw the bodies, he added.
