Is Aakhri Sach a true story?
The answer is yes. Aakhri Sach is a true story inspired by the infamous Burari killings that jolted the entire India in 2018. To be precise, Aakhiri Sach reignites the memory of the Burari Deaths in which a mass suicide case of a family had jolted the nation. To be precise, eleven family members of the Chundawat family from Burari, Delhi were found dead in 2018. Ten people were found hanged, while the oldest family member, the grandmother, was strangled. The bodies were found on 1 July 2018; in the early morning after the death. The police in their report had ruled the deaths as mass ritual suicide, motivated by shared delusion or psychosis.
It is pertinent to mention here that Netflix in 2021 had released a docuseries named House of Secrets which was based on the Burari deaths and it went on to win multiple awards and appreciation from fans as well as critics. Now, Aakhri Sach is brought back the infamous Burari Deaths in the form of a web series. The Burari mass suicide case is still considered one of the most horrific cases that India ever witnessed. The mass suicide ritual and its aftermath had even frightened the cops who entered the family's home.
At first, the cops thought that the death of the Chundawat family might be a murder, however, the post-mortem reports revealed that the deaths of the members were due to hanging only ruling out the murder angle. Not only this, there was nothing stolen from the house and it was locked from the inside which had also ruled out suspicion of burglary. Ultimately, The Police came to the conclusion and termed the deaths as motivated by shared delusion or psychosis after they recovered 11 diaries beside the temple of the house where the earliest entry was dated 2007 and the last entry was made the night before the incident (2018). The crime branch had opined that the language that was used in the diaries was instructional, commanding, and conversational. In fact, the last page of the diary had all the instructions that needed to be followed by the family, and that eventually unfolded to become a horrifying incident.
