According to CNN-News 18, Maa Geeta confessed to having a hand in the mass-suicide, and said that she had "pushed the family to commit suicide". In the video, the occult practitioner is also heard saying that the Burari family had been "possessed by evil spirits". As of now, it's unclear whether Maa Geeta has been charged, and what the next course of action is.
Narayan Devi (77), sons Bhavnesh (50) and Lalit (45), their wives Savita (48) and Tina (42), daughter Pratibha (57), and five grandchildren- Priyanka (33), Neetu (25), Monu (23), Dhruv and Shivam (15)- were found dead in their Delhi residence on Sunday. All but Narayan were found hanging. They were blindfolded, gagged and had their hands tied. Police suspect Narayan was hanged from a doorknob.
For now, locals are confused about what to do with the house. Brokers say the family would find it hard to find buyers for "four-five years." Relatives staying elsewhere have ruled out moving in either. So some have proposed turning it into a temple.
