Kerala film producer Santhosh Kumar 48 committed suicide along with his wife Manju 38, and daughter Gauri 9 in his flat in Dubai. It is yet not confirmed that Santosh had first murdered wife and daughter and then slit his own wrists. But because the door was locked from inside, it is confirmed that its not a case of murder but suicide. Both Santhosh and his wife were found near the bed with their hands slit and the daughter was suffocated to death by a pillow.
Santhosh had been going through huge financial crisis as the police had revealed that a number of his cheques had bounced recently and he was under a lot of debt. The matter came into light when Santhosh cousin informed the police that he was missing for almost a week. Along with the authorities Santhosh’s cousin had to open the door of their flat as it was locked from inside. But the bodies had already started decomposing so the smell was completely unbearable. Even the air conditioners were turned off so that the foul smell could not travel through the ducts. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV
