Burari CCTV footage

The Hush Post: In a latest, the Delhi Police has now claimed that two children who were among the 11 members of the Chundawat family who were found dead in Burari, protested before they were hung.

The police are claiming that it was due to this retaliation that the hands of the two 15-year-old children Dhruv and Shivam, 12, were tied forcibly which is evident by the injury marks on their hands and maybe they tried to loosen it but couldn’t.

Meanwhile, the police are investigating if Lalit, who claimed that he was possessed by his father’s spirit, was taking decisions under someone’s influence. “It is being investigated whether such things were planted in Lalit’s mind by someone close to him or was he suffering from a psychological disorder. The probe ahead will now focus on ascertaining if there was any external influence,” he said.

Police have also said that after some reluctance, now relatives have started opening up about Lalit’s behaviour. “Lalit’s wife Tina had told her sisters and some other relatives that Lalit had sometimes been possessed by his father’s spirit. However, they claimed that they had never seen him behave in a weird way.

The police also said that most of the notes written in the registers discovered from the house were in Priyanka’s handwriting. The police had found notes on ‘badh tapasya’, in which people get into a banyan tree-formation whose branches hang around. The notes say that doing this would make God happy.

Earlier the police had found the CCTV footage that showed some members bringing stools and wires used for hanging.
