The Deaths of the Burari Family Are the Subject of a Netflix Documentary.
This article contains suicide-related material.
True crime docuseries on Netflix have a habit of bringing previously unknown instances to light. Take, for example, The Burari Deaths from House of Secrets. The three-part docuseries chronicles the deaths of 11 Chundawat family members in Burari, Delhi, India. Although the fatalities were thought to be the consequence of a mass suicide, some people are still puzzled as to who murdered the Chundawat family.
The docuseries goes into great depth regarding what happened to the 11 members of the Chundawat family over three generations. Despite the fact that the case is basically resolved, the larger picture concerns mental health. The docuseries itself focuses on an undiagnosed potential diagnosis in a group of people who are related.
A friend of the Chundawat family discovered all 11 members, ranging in age from 15 to 80, dead in their house on July 1, 2018. Authorities launched an investigation, which resulted in the discovery of 11 journals kept by members of the Burari family for 11 years. They perished, it appeared, as a result of a ceremony gone tragically wrong.
According to the police notebooks, the Chundawat family executed a ceremony on the night of their deaths that included binding their hands and ankles, tape their mouths shut, and blindfolding themselves. They then hanged themselves in the family home’s courtyard. The family’s 80-year-old grandmother, on the other hand, was discovered strangled in a room of the house.
I just finished watching the Burari Deaths documentary on Netflix, and that case is exactly why I’m more afraid of people who have blind faith in anything that isn’t backed up by science than any supernatural fear.
Although no one knows for sure who killed Narayani Devi Chundawat, it is thought that she was also a part of the ceremony described in the family’s journals. The family was apparently following instructions from the family’s deceased patriarch, Narayani’s late husband, funneled through Lalit Chundawat, according to the journals. According to the journal entries, the father will save them all from death during the rite.
Leena Yadav, a filmmaker, looked into what happened to the Chundawat family from Burari and how they may have had a shared psychosis without anybody outside the family noticing.
“The main point of the documentary was to show how simple it is for all of us to look… Brinkwire in a nutshell.
