An Indian man, Hasnin Anwar Warekar, has reportedly killed 14 members of his family for an unknown cause, before committing suicide.
According to multiple reports, the man, killed seven of his nieces and nephew, his parents and other family members with a butcher’s knife before committing suicide.
Hasnin Anwar, 35, who is also a Chartered Accountant, carried on the series of murder after family members gathered late on Saturday, February 27, 2016 at one of their homes in Thane, Mumbai, India, for a family function, police said.
A Thane police spokesman, Gajanan Laxman Kabdule, told AFP. “The attacker, Hasnin Anwar Warekar, hung himself after slitting the throats of all other family members including his parents,”
While investigation has commenced on the bizarre action by the late chartered accountant, the sole survivor of the attack, Warekar’s sister, was taken to hospital after neighbours heard her screaming for help after midnight and alerted police.
“We still haven’t been able to speak with the attacker’s 21-year-old sister, the lone survivor of the attack, who is in deep trauma at a city hospital,” Kabdule said.
According to the Press Trust of India news agency, a property dispute was allegedly responsible for the motive behind Wareka’s killings.
