What Drove Lalit To Entice 3 Generations To Accompany Him Into The Mystery?

Did anybody really think about what probably drove the alleged plotter, a middle-aged person named Lalit, to entice three generations of his family to accompany him into the mystery?

Lalit alleged he was acquired by the spirit of his late father, as indicated by heaps of tediously summarized diary entries found at the scene of the crime, and pressured his family into not only trusting him but also retaining their internal affairs hidden. In some ways, he was indeed the head of his own miniature cult, manipulating his followers through some “supernatural events” and bringing them to redemption and affluence.
