"It appears that the trio, residents of Tikamgarh, committed suicide as a result of financial distress. However, investigation into the incident will bring to light the exact reason behind their suicide," Khargapur police station sub-inspector Nitesh Jain said.
The deceased were identified as Laxman (35), Rajni (32) and their 13-year-old daughter, he said.
