Surviving Members of the Burari Family

The sister Sujata Nagpal presently stays in Panipat, while the family’s eldest son, Dinesh Singh Chundawat, currently resides in Rajasthan and is a contractor. Speaking about moving away, Dinesh said:

Our entire family was in Rajasthan, in and around Sawa village. We did not want to cut ties. I liked open spaces, something which Delhi does not have. But we moved away in hopes of setting up a business.

Filmmaker Leena Yadav comments on creating the series House of Secrets: The Burrari Deaths

Indian film director Leena Yadav has done an exceptional job with this documentary. Speaking to a media outlet about the documentary, the filmmaker said:

This particular case really got my attention. I wanted to know the why and how of it, and I was not satisfied with the information around me. So when Netflix asked if I had a subject for a documentary in mind, this was on the top of my list. I wanted to investigate it myself as this case has so many layers, and we haven’t learned about a single one yet.

She further stated:

I have tried to evolve my own style of documentary telling in House of Secrets. The subject defines the style, and I find that when the visual language, the edit, and the structure serve the telling of the story, it elevates the experience.

Elaborating on the challenges she faced during the shoot, Leena Yadav said:

We [Indian society] are not very aware of documentaries as we genuinely live by the rule ‘ghar ki baat ghar mein hee rehni chahiye [private matters should remain within the four walls of the house]’. Therefore, getting people to open up was a bit difficult. But the fact is that people also want to talk about it. Additionally, it was a very emotional subject at various levels. It was painful — especially interviewing the friends and family — but the lessons learned were many.

What happened to the actual Burrari House?

After watching the documentary, many people are left wondering what happened to the actual Burrari house. Reports state that the family’s home is situated in Burari, North Delhi, spawning across a 1,070-square-foot property. According to media reports, the house has been attracting people as a ‘haunted home’.

Following the deaths of the family, the house was rented at a cheap rate because of the horror stories floating around. At present, the three-story home is occupied by two families – the Kashyaps stay on the ground floor of the house and run Dhruv diagnostic center on the premises, and the Ali’s take care of the first and second floors of the house.

The neighbors of the Burari house claim that they have felt a mysterious presence outside the house. However, the current owners have quashed all such rumors and continue to live in the residence without fear.
