All the three members of a family were found dead this morning at their rented house where they had moved in yesterday. Kanu Ghosh (50),an employee of the Krishnanagar District Court,his wife,Rita Ghosh (46),and their son,Subrata Ghosh (20),lived at Radhanagar in Nadia.
When the owner of the apartment Dipti Rani Das noticed no activity at Ghoshs house till 10 am,he alerted the police who broke open the door and found all three of them dead.
The sons head was smashed and he was lying on the bed in one of the rooms. In another room,Rita was lying dead on the bed while Kanu was found hanging from a ceiling fan, said a senior official.
Police sources said that prima facie it appears that Kanu smashed his sons head,strangulated his wife to death,and then hanged himself.
DSP (HQ),Dibyojyoti Das said: We have recovered a suicide note presumably written by Kanu, he said,but refused to elaborate on its content.
