Gorkha, February 22

Three persons of the same family have been found dead in Barpak, Sulikot rural municipality-1 of the Gorkha district of western Nepal on Monday.

The deceased have been identified as Til Bahadur Gurung (84), his 22-year-old daughter-in-law Aaita Kumari Gurung, and 13-year-old granddaughter Usha Gurung.

Police say locals had informed them of some mysterious circumstances this morning as the family did not open the door of their house until late in the morning.

“Then, the locals opened the door to find the three persons dead,” the District Police Office Chief Surendra Bahadur Gurung says, “A local police team has also reached the incident site.”

Because they have foamed at the mouth, police have suspected they might have consumed some poisonous mushroom.

“However, the exact cause can be identified after postmortem only.”
