Thane shocker: Man slits throats of 14 family members before committing suicide

Thane: In a shocking case of murder, a man slits throats 14 of his family members and then committed suicide in Kasarwadi area near Thane in Maharashtra, early morning on Sunday.

“The man hung himself after killing 14 members of his family. The reason behind the killings is not known yet. There is only one survivor and we haven’t recorded her statement yet as she is in a state of shock,” Thane Joint Commissioner of Police Ashutosh Dumre said.

According to Primary investigation, Husnain Warerkar murdered 14 people including seven children, three sisters, his parents and another man from his family before he committed suicide.

The police say that all members had come together for a family celebration and were later sedated by Warerkar and then killed with a big knife.

One sister has survived the horror and is admitted in in a private hospital. The police hope that she will be able to throw light on the incident once she recovers.

The accused was found hanging in his room with knife in hand.

The bizarre factor here is that the murderer, according to his neighbours, was a cheerful and smart person who showed absolutely no signs of any psychological disorder.

“It is a sad incident as the man was a very nice person. He was well qualified and worked in a good company. He was calm and composed. It is going to be really hard to figure out the real reason as to why this happened because none of the neighbours, or anyone for that matter was aware of any family dispute,” a neighbour said.

The police are on the spot and a thorough investigation is underway.
