Burari, a non-descript neighbourhood in the Indian capital Delhi, attained notoriety after 11 members of the Chundawat family were found dead inside their home, amid whispers of occult practices and mass suicide. BBC Hindi’s Salman Ravi tries to find out more about the family and their final hours.
The tiny lane where houses stand cheek by jowl is filled with journalists, policemen, politicians, social workers and curious onlookers. They are all congregating outside the first house in the row which some whisper is “haunted”.
This is the three-storey house where neighbours found the bodies of the Chundawat family on 1 July.
By all accounts, the Chundawats were the quintessential average Indian extended family. They had lived in the area for 20 years and were active members of the community.
