Indian Man Slaughters 14 Family Members In Their Sleep Then Kills Self As Police Battle To Unravel The Mystery

An Indian accountant has murdered 14 members of his own
family after slitting their throats with a butcher’s knife while they slept
before killing himself.
Hasnin Anwar Warekar, 35, killed his relatives, including
seven children and his own parents, after lacing their food with a sedative as
they gathered for a family function at a house in Thane, a short distance from
The sole survivor of the attack was Warekar’s 21-year-old
sister who was found by police after neighbours heard her screaming.

Thane police spokesman Gajanan Laxman Kabdule said: ‘The
attacker, Hasnin Anwar Warekar, hung himself after slitting the throats of all
other family members including his parents.
‘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.’
He added he could not confirm whether the victims had been
sedates, saying investigators were awaiting medical test results. Mr Kabdule
also said the details of the attack are ‘still sketchy’ along with the motive.
According to local media, Warekar, a chartered accountant,
slashed his victims after they went to bed, having all decided to spend the
night at the house together.
Ashutosh Dumbre, joint commissioner of Thane Police said:
‘Prima facie evidence suggests that the accused bolted all the doors of the
house and murdered his family while they were asleep with a knife that we found
near his body.’
Television footage also showed men lifting the bodies of the
victims, wrapped in sheets in to the back of an ambulance, as crowds gathered
outside the house.
According to the Press Trust of India news agency, a
property dispute was behind the killings, but Mr Dumbre said initial investigations
have so far found no trigger for such an ‘extreme step’.

He told he ABP news channel: ‘In our inquiry so far, no one
has yet been able to give the reason for this. He worked with a private company
in Mumbai. There were no known financial troubles or disputes and now we are
hoping that the lone survivor can tell us something about the trigger.
