Kasaragod: Ashwin Kalluraya (22), an IT professional employed in Coimbatore, his parents and other family members had gathered in their ancestral home in kind of a family reunion on Sunday, Apr 17. But the happy event turned tragic.
Ashwin reportedly had some psychiatric problem and was undergoing treatment. For no obvious reason and without any provocation, he is said to have suddenly gone on a rampage and stabbed his father Shrihari (57), mother Lata (52), sister Suma (33), aunt Vanajakshi (50) and grandmother Sugunamma (60) with sharp weapons.
Soon thereafter he vanished from the spot. The family members were rushed to a hospital in Mangaluru. When a search was made for Ashwin, he was found to have ended his life by hanging himself from a tree nearby.
The Badiyadka police have registered a case.
