Hyderabad, May 31 (IANS) In what appears be a suicide pact, four members of a family killed themselves near Nadergul on the outskirts of Hyderabad, police said on Tuesday.

A couple and their two daughters jumped into a lake in Kurmalguda, Ranga Reddy district, late on Monday night

The bodies of Quddus Pasha (37), Fatima (28), Mehar (9) and Firdous Begum (6) were pulled out from the lake.

They were suspected to have consumed poisonous substances before jumping into the lake. On noticing this, locals pulled out Quddus Pasha and Mehar from the lake. However, both had already succumbed.

Police launched a search operation for the other two persons but could not find them. Their bodies were retrieved from the lake on Tuesday.

A police officer said the bodies of all four were shifted to Osmania General Hospital for autopsy.
