Shravan Kanat (also spelled Kanar) (Hindi: श्रवण कांत) was an Indian farmer who killed seven members of his family in Moti Kosladi (also identified as Nani Kosamdi, Nani Kosbadi, Kosabari, Kosbara, and Koshvadi), a village near Dharampur, India during the night from October 10 to October 11, 2015.

Kanat owned five bigha land where he grew rice and also worked as a labourer at other sugarcane farms. According to his brother he had a short temper and had been mentally unstable for several months, wherefore he didn't go to work anymore. On the aforementioned night the 36-year-old killed his wife, two sons, three daughters, and granddaughter by hacking their throats with a sickle and afterwards committed suicide by hanging himself from the ceiling. The bodies were found around 6 a.m. by neighbours who then informed police.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9]
