Shock as family of four found dead

May 02, 2012

A YOUNG family of four has died in a suspected murder-suicide just months after being rescued from a fiery car crash.

Homicide officers were last night trying to piece together the Sharma family's last days after they were found dead at their Glen Waverley home, in Melbourne's southeast.
The bodies of accountant Nilesh Sharma, 36, his wife Preetika, 32, their son Divesh, 5, and daughter Divya, 3, were discovered when police were called to make a welfare check.
The two children were found in beds in separate bedrooms. It is believed Mr Sharma was found hanged.
The children's great uncle, Abhay Singh, yesterday said the family had seemed happy when they attended his son's birthday party last week.
"They were very happy, they had a drink and we had fun," he said.
"The kids were very amicable, well mannered, polite and well presented. We are all devastated. Very shaken - a whole family is destroyed."

Last December the family were lucky to escape after a car crash in the Dandenong Ranges. Mr Sharma was taken to hospital with chest, abdominal and pelvic injuries and burns.
His wife suffered neck and stomach pain. The children were not hurt.

"It was a miracle they survived. This was their second chance," he said.
Peter Kourtis, 68, who lives across the road from the Sharma family home, said he saw the father mowing the lawns at the weekend and the children playing outside: "Everything seemed normal."
