The details of this incident are shocking. Ten years ago, ten members of the same family committed suicide by hanging from a roof in Barari, on the outskirts of the Indian capital, Delhi, while the eldest member of the same family was apparently strangled to death.

According to the police investigation, there was a common mental illness behind this horrific incident and the family members believed that they would not die by hanging but would get a higher position.


They were blindfolded and had cotton in their ears. The House of Secrets sheds light on various aspects of the investigation into the same case. 


It also used original footage and included interviews with police officers, forensic experts, psychologists, neighbors, and family acquaintances. 


The family also had a dog that survived the incident. An interview with an animal rights activist is also part of a series in which he talks about a dog.


Many users wrote that the series is horrible despite being based on real events and it is not an easy task to watch it in full.

The House of Secrets is directed by Lena Yadav and Anubhu Chopra, while the background music for the series is provided by Oscar-winning musician AR Rehman.
