Burari deaths: The police have denied the role of any "godman" in the suicides.
New Delhi: All 11 found mysteriously dead in their home in Delhi on Sunday hanged themselves and it was one man in the family who possibly talked them into what turned into a "mass suicide", the police suspect.
There is evidence that the family members didn't believe they would die, that they thought god would save them.
Piecing together details of the autopsy and writings found in the house in Burari, the police said Lalit Chundawa, the son of 77-year-old Narayani Devi, was the "brain" behind the deaths.
The police suggest the suicides were the result of a "shared psychotic episode".
