SHOCKING: Father Kills Wife, Two Daughters And Hangs Self
It was a sad moment when a distressed man, Jitendra Lad, lost it and murdered his wife, two teenage daughters before hanging himself. According to Mail Online, police detectives believe the 49 years old Jitendra killed wife, Dashka, 44, their daughters, Trisha, 19 and Nisha, 16, before taking his own life.
Friends say the was an aspirational family who believed in hard work, the importance of education and good manners, as well as ‘the nicest family in the world’.
The Clayton, Bradford, based family had not been seen for several days when a neighbour gained access to their £250,000 detached house and found the horrific scene on Monday evening.
Police and ambulance were called to the quiet cul-de-sac at 8.30pm. Mrs Lad and her daughters were dead in one room and Mr Lad was found hanging in another. Friends and neighbours were unaware of any problems in the family and had heard no arguments.
Both parents had good jobs as clerical officers with the local council and were keen to climb the career ladder. Trisha was in her second year at Leeds University studying for a degree in biochemistry and Nisha was at sixth form.
Forensic officers scoured the house as detectives began researching the family for a motive to the horrific murder. While postmortem results were being awaited, their deaths were being treated as ‘murder’.
Mr Lad and his wife married in Bradford 23 years ago. The Hindu couple worked at Bradford Council, Mr Lad in revenue and benefits while his wife was an administrator.
Shop manager Niraj Patel, 49, a friend of Mr Lad, said he was stunned to be told he may have murdered his family.
He was a very happy, easy-going chap, always a smile on his face. I’m totally shocked. You’d never believe he would have an ounce of violence in him.
Susan Hawkins, 34, a support worker, said:
They were the nicest family in the world and the last family you would ever expect this to happen to. I used to see the mum in the playground when the kids were younger and she had a gorgeous smile, she was a real doting mum.
You could call them inspirational. She wanted to be head of planning or something like that.
