The Coverage Of The Burari Family Suicide Is Another Example Of Media Serving News With Extra Sauce!

The Bhatia family residing in Burari, north Delhi, has been in headlines since eleven members of the family were found dead the beginning of the week. There are multiple theories to the death of 11 family members. The police was speculating an occult angle and so far, according to the surfaced proofs, the spooky speculations remain at the forefront. Despite the evidence found, it is hard to believe that an entire family would take such a drastic step.   


The theories are not limited to the police, media or locals; Twitter has some thoughts as well. 


Many media platforms are choosing to spread the news solely with the cult angle, using clickbait-y, headlines and the users on Twitter are not buying it. People are bashing media platforms and the police for irresponsibly sharing live pictures from the crime spot along with exact details from the handwritten diary.


They're making a valid point: Unknowingly, such extreme details could encourage and guide people to suicidal thoughts.




Twitterati also have their own theories. Here are some of them.   


1. The set up could be a cover-up for mass murder and the handwritten diary could have been written after the deaths.




2. One of the family members was a schizophrenic and made other family members believe that he/she had an otherworldly connection.



3. The evidence is fabricated.




4. The family could have been influenced by a fake baba
