The death mystery of Bhatia family in Delhi is getting shocking as the investigation reports are coming out. According to latest report, Delhi Police Crime Branch rules out the possibility of murder in the mysterious case. The initial investigation has shown possibility of a spiritual angel, and now it seems like it is confirmed. According to Times Now sources, the family was supposed to perform some other pooja however, they died while performing it.
As per the latest reports, every step taken on the night the family died was written almost a week back. Also, the ‘pooja’ began the same day when dairy-entry was made. The aim of the ‘pooja’ was to thank god for his blessings bestowed upon the Bhatia family.
The sources in the police team probing the deaths told Times Now that younger son of Narayani Devi, Lalit was performing these poojas for the betterment of the family since eleven years. He started the rituals after his father’s death. During these years, the man managed to convince the Bhatia family that because of their father’s soul the family was becoming financially strong. After the death of their father, family’s business expanded. Initially, they had one shop but ‘because of the positive soul of their father’ they managed to own three more shops.
However, CCTV footage gained by police shows a woman of the family bringing in the five stools used in the mass hangings – exactly at 10 pm. This followed a script in one of the diaries found in the house after the deaths. The footage shows that the family voluntarily took steps for mass suicide. (IANS)
Digital addiction is real and it could be as dangerous as drug addiction, warned psychiatrists while outlining practical ways to fight the urge to use gadgets non-stop both among children and adults.
The warning came following reports of a 24-year-old mother committing suicide last week in Tamil Nadu after she was prevented from using TikTok and a 16-year-old student from Madhya Pradesh suffering a major cardiac arrest and losing his life after playing PUBG for six straight hours last month.
The key to fighting digital addiction is to realise the problem when someone develops it, the experts said.
Parikh also recommended that adults should undergo a four hours of “digital detox” every week – a period when they do not use their phone or any gadget.
“If one finds it difficult to go through those four hours then there is a problem which needs to be addressed,” he said.
People who are addicted to using gadgets, tend to get “withdrawal symptoms” in the form of always thinking about that them, or becoming irritable with disturbed sleep when they try to stop using their devices, said Sandeep Vohra, Senior Consultant, Psychiatry, Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, New Delhi.
“Digital addiction is as bad as addiction to any other drug. So if you are hit by digital addiction, the signs are that you actually tend to go off your normal routine life. You are always dependent and on the screen,” Vohra told IANS.
Such people can neglect personal hygiene and their own self. They also tend to stop interacting with the society, with their family members and stop thinking about their responsibilities or stop doing their day-to-day chores.
“One can have clinical depression, anxiety, obsessive symptoms, insomnia, irritability, and difficulty in concentrating on other things.
“And you can have in rare cases, when one becomes over-dependent, psychosis. So you have to be aware of all this and it can be very challenging if you don’t realise that you are going into addiction,” Vohra added.
It is not just adults who are vulnerable to digital addiction as use of smartphones and other gaming devices have become common among children.
But do we know when a child starts showing signs of addiction and when to seek help?
The experts suggested that parents should be alarmed when they notice that a child’s ability to live life normally has got affected and they lash out badly when digital access is denied.
“Parents need to be good role models. If parents spend too much time on digital gadgets then children learn and follow by example. Encourage children to be social and develop hobbies,” Parikh said.
“If you keep focusing your child’s attention on indoor activities there are higher chances of him/her becoming digitally addicted. Therefore encourage him/her to play sports or meet friends and family. Reading is also a great way to combat boredom if indoors,” he added.
Vohra suggested that when parents realise that their child is spending too much time on screen, it is very important first to have a dialogue with the kid and ask them to cut down on media consumption.
“If they feel that either the child is not responding the way they want, or if they feel that the child is trying to tell them lies and still using time on screen, then it’s better to consult a mental health professional,” Vohra informed. (IANS)
