In the video, the man is standing on a stool and helping his 12-year-old son wrap a sheet around his neck, who does not offer any resistance.
While this happens, a woman is seen lying on the floor, presumably the man’s wife.
This case is reminiscent of the Burari family suicide that took place in north Delhi last year, where all 11 members of a family were found hanging from the ceiling.
