He was a resident of Devdih village under Bansdih police station in Uttar Pradesh's Ballia district.

The police found his body hanging from a tree branch

Upon searching Shrawan's home and the surrounding area, the police found his body hanging from a tree branch in an orchard. The bodies of his wife, Shashikala, 30, and their two sons, seven-year-old Surya Ram and four-month-old Chatthu, were found in a pool of blood. The woman and children had been attacked with a sharp-edged weapon.

The incident was a result of an old dispute
