Sidhra Bodies case: Jammu Police says fighting depression, dead consumed high dose of drugs

Jammu: The investigation agency of Jammu Police on Saturday has claimed that six people, including five members of a family, were found dead inside two houses on August 17 at Sidhra area here in the city outskirts.
“All six died of an overdose of drugs, which they had decided to take to end their lives after fighting multiple court cases and depression,” Senior Superintendent of Police, Jammu, Chandan Kohli here told reporters at a press conference.
He said that Noor-ul-Habib is believed to have convinced the five members of the family included an elderly woman, her specially-abled daughter and son, another daughter and grandson to commit suicide as both the families were under depression due to pending court cases and medical reasons.
He also informed that two persons have been arrested including a health worker and a plumber, for deliberately concealing the occurrence of the crime and not informing police on time, which could have saved their lives.
Flanked by the four Special Investigation Team (SIT) members, the officer lauded their hard work and professional investigation.
Referring to the investigation during which police obtained CCTV footage, call recordings and bank account details, he said Sakina’s specially-abled children were the first to die of a drug overdose on August 12, followed by Sakeena on August 14 and the others on August 15.
