Jain added that further investigation would provide clarity, including the translation of the entire suicide note and identification of the individuals involved in the monetary dispute.

The bodies have been sent for a post-mortem examination. The grim discovery unfolded when the pilgrim group failed to open their room in the evening, prompting the Dharmshala staff to investigate.

Senior police officials and forensic experts, reached the spot to conduct a thorough investigation before breaking into the room. The family had checked into the Dharamshala on December 3.
