Pune: A 35-year-old software engineer, along with his wife and their four-year-old son, were found dead in their apartment at Baner in Pune on Thursday night. The bodies of Jayeskumar Patel, his wife Bhumika and son Naksha, were found at their residence at Vasant Vihar Society on Baner-Pashan Link Road. According to police, it is suspected that the death of the kid due to a chronic ailment could have made his parents go into shock or depression and led to their decision to commit suicide by hanging themselves.
Patel worked as an engineer at Q Logic, a software firm at Yerwada Pune. The family hails from Gujarat. Dayanand Dhome, police inspector of Chatushrungi police station said, “Patel did not go to office for two days. His colleagues called him on his mobile but did not receive any response. They called the neighbours to find out whether Patel was at home. The neighbours rang the door for long and then informed the police.”
Mr Dhome said, “The police entered their house from neighbour’s balcony. Their bodies were lying there with strangulating marks on their necks. The kid had froth on his mouth. It’s possible the child died due to some disease. We are still investigating.”
Sanjay Thenge, police sub inspector of Pashan said the neighbours mentioned that Naksha had some chronic disease and often fainted.
