New Delhi: After 11 members of a family committed mass suicide under mysterious circumstances in Delhi's Burari area, the house became a centre of nationwide interest, sparking 'haunted' rumours that refused to die down.
The ground floor of the house, where the 11 members committed suicide in July last year is now a diagnostic centre. The owner of the diagnostic centre said that he doesn’t believe in superstitions.
Dr. Mohan Singh said, "I don't believe in superstitions. If I have believed in such things I would not have come here. My patients have no problem coming here for the test."
"I have no problem with it, this house is convenient as it is near the road. I am not superstitious", he said.
However, as per Hindu rituals, a priest was seen offering prayers and performing "Havan", which is done to ward off any evil.
"Pujan is being offered to Gauri-Ganesh. Before the start of any new thing Puja is performed as per rituals. One should not believe in superstition and taboo," said the Hindu priest.
Ravinder a local said "What happened, happened. All things are okay now."
"They were very good people and there is no such things like an evil spirit. Their souls have gone directly to heaven," said Suresh, another local.
The house became infamous after bodies of seven women and four men were found on July 1. A post-mortem report confirmed suicide. The reason of the mass suicides continues to remain a mystery
