On Thursday, police reported that a three-member family from the state residing in Chennai was discovered dead in a hotel room in this central district of Kerala.
They reported that a man, his wife, and their daughter were discovered hanging in the room.
The hotel staff informed the police that the family had checked into the hotel a few days prior.
The family had previously informed the hotel staff that they would vacate the room the previous evening.
As there was no response despite repeated attempts to contact them, the hotel staff notified the police, who rushed to the scene and entered the room by breaking the lock.
A police officer stated that, at first glance, it appeared to be a suicide.
”As per the ID cards recovered from the room, they were settled in Chennai. But, we are yet to find out their native place in Kerala,” he told PTI.
A purported suicide note, found near the bodies, said financial issues forced them to take the extreme step, sources said.
