Kolkata, Oct 21 (SocialNews.XYZ) In a shocking incident, three members of the same family allegedly committed suicide in West Bengal's West Burdwan district, police said.
The incident occurred on Friday night in Barakar Nalipara area under the Kulti Police Station.

The police said that a suicide note has been recovered in which they did not blame anyone for their decision to take the drastic step.
The bodies have been sent for post-mortem and a probe has also been launched into the incident.
As per initial clues secured by the investigating official, financial problems might have been the reason.
Citing locals, sources said that pressure from recovery agents from a public sector bank could be the reasons behind the suicide.
