Shakeel Khan hanged himself after poisoning his wife and two children
The police on Sunday registered a case of murder against Shakeel Khan who hanged himself at his house in Indira Nagar on July 29 after poisoning his wife and two children, an officer from Shivaji Nagar police said.
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.
