Rajasthan: 11 members of a family, that had migrated from Pakistan found dead

The bodies of 11 people from a single family were found in a field in India's Jodhpur district in Rajasthan state
According to the report, the family had migrated to India from Pakistan and only one member of the family now remains.
Police launched an investigation into the incident while traces of insecticide were found at the scene.
A police official, Rahul Barhat, revealed that forensic experts had been called in to assist with the probe.
An investigation is being carried out to ascertain the exact cause of the incident," he said.A preliminary police investigation suggested that the incident may have arisen from a family dispute, the report said.
Locals had alerted officials after finding the bodies, the report said, adding that the deceased were from the Bheel community and had come to India some eight years ago.
According to police, the family had rented a piece of land and used to cultivate it to earn a living. It added that 37-year-old Kewal Ram was the only surviving member of the family and was being questioned by the police.
The deceased included his parents, brother, three sisters, daughter and two sons, and 75-year-old Budha Ram, the head of the family.
According to preliminary reports, Kewal Ram survived because he was sleeping at a distance from the family's home.
Meanwhile, Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said that the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi was in contact with the Indian Ministry of External Affairs to ascertain more details regarding the incident, including the cause and circumstances of the reported deaths.
Both the families came from Pakistan in December 2015. Despite living here, he did not get Indian citizenship. But they had created the Aadhaar card. Ram, the only survivor in the case, is accused of murder by his father-in-law.
It is also being speculated that 38-year-old Priya alias Pyari killed everyone by injecting poison. Priya was the daughter of Buddharam. Police found a bottle of poison and injections near the body.
Priya killed all the family members by injecting them with poison, as she had done a nursing course in Pakistan. It is seen that 10 of the dead had their hands pierced with a needle while Priya had a needle mark on her leg. So Priya gave herself an injection to everyone and killed herself.
Investigations have revealed that all of them died due to rat poison. Alprazolam tablet, which is used for sleeping pills, was found at the scene.
Another possibility of death in this case is that both the families had been involved in witchcraft and technical relations for a few days. Is it a case of mass suicide like the Burari incident in Delhi? Police are investigating.
