Six members of a family, on Monday were found dead at their home in the southern Indian city of Madurai in an apparent suicide pact over debt.
Veera Rao and administration official say two more family members were rescued from their residence in a critical state and were being treated at a hospital. The family which ran a school, committed suicide by consuming poison and police found a suicide note that said they were under a huge loan default, Rao added.
The family, in the suicide note, asked authorities to sell their property to help settle the dues. Police were investigating if the family was under pressure from any private money lenders because Madurai is notorious for unscrupulous money-lenders in spite a state-government ban and local media has reported on a number of cases of harassment by money-lenders.
