Police suspect that financial hardship was the reason behind the family taking this extreme step. The preliminary investigation revealed that Ramakrishna, a goldsmith and a resident of Tenali town of Guntur district, shifted to Anakapalle town a few years ago for work where he lived with his family in a flat.

Police said they might have consumed the poison on Thursday night, following which four of them died. A case has been registered in connection with the deaths. Further investigation into the matter is underway.
