Even in K.P. it is necessary to consider 1,3,8,12, 2 and 7 houses besides badhaka palces according to chara Sthira and Ubhaya classification.
If the sub lords of 1st, 3rd and 8th houses signify 2 , 7 and badhaka palces, it denotes Alpayurdaya (short life).
If the sub lords of 1st, 3rd and 8th housses signify marakasthana as well as the bhavas which cause long life then it causes Madhyayush(Medium life).
If the sub lords of 1st, 3rd and 8th houses signify 1,3,5,8 and 9 and 11 housess (not being badhaka planets), it gives long life.

Place of Death
If the star lord of the eighth house cuspal sub lord is in 4,10 houses the death may take place in his native place, own residence or working place.
3rd house near tohis residence.
6,8,12 houses Hospital or in a distant place.
9th house in journey or unfamiliar place.
5 11 houses at the places where auspicious deeds are being done.
2 7 and badhaka places ordinary death.
The 1st cusp sub lord should be connected with 8th and 12th houses and at the same time the sub and star lords of 8th house be in Mesha, Vrisha, Simha,Vrischika,Dhanus or Makara signs.
In the sub-sub, sub, major periods of the planets which are connected with 1st and 8th houses death may take place. Then the lords of the sub and sub-sub periods must be connected to Maraka and Badhaka lords.
Particularly they should be 8th cusp sign-star-sub lords or Star lord of the 8th cuspal sub lord.
In a horary chart, the sign,star,sub lords of 1st or 8th houses signify the badhaka or maraca houses, death is inevitable.
The gochara also is to be checked.
If the 8th cusp sub lord is the significator of 1,6,7,8,10 and 12 houses and connected to Kuja and Sani, it may cause death by suicide.
On 4th Feb., 1985, one of my friends asked me to study his friend’s horoscope, who was in bed for more than one month.
We both went to his house. After the introduction and other things are over, I asked for his horoscope. I was told by the family members that they don’t know even his birth particulars.
Then as usual I asked the patient to choose a random number between 1-249. He selected 243.
Next day i.e., 5th Feb.,1985 at 10.30 p.m. I began to work. Those days we don’t have computers and soft wares. Based on KP ephemeris and Astrological table of houses published from Hariman Book publishers from Madras I prepared the chart.
As per KP if 1st cusp sub lord signifies Maraka and Badhaka houses it causes early death. Here Ven the 1st and 6th sl situated in Sat star. So we can assume that the disease is a chronic one.
Sat and Ket are in 8th house. Sun Merc Ven and Sat are Malefics for Pisces Lagna.
As Asc is Dual sign the 7th house from it, Kanya becomes Badhaka house besides being Maraka house. So Merc is the Marakadhipathi and Badhkadhipathi.
The planets deposited in the stars of planets who are in maraka and badhaka houses,
Or the planets who are in the houses,
Or conjoined with those planets,
Or the planets who are in the stars of lords, of these houses, cause death.
Here the badhaka sthana is Kanya. Its lord is Budha. Budha is in Moon’s star Sravana in Sat Rasi Makara and and in the Sub of Rahu. Budha is with Ravi Guru.
Let us consider RP. That is Tuesday. Lagna is Kanya. Star is Aslesha. Rasi is Karka.
Day lord Kuja, Sign lord Moon , Star Lord Budha, Lagna Lord Budha and lagna star lord is Kuja.
Thus Mars,Moon,Merc becomes the ruling planets.
Let us study the dasas. Then Rahu Bhukthi in Budha Mahadsa is running. Anthara belongs to Ketu.(upto 3rd March).
Kuja is 2nd Bhava Lord and Rahu being there represents Mars. Ketu Represents Ven the lord of 8th house and signifying 3,8,12 houses.
1st star lord is Merc and Sub lord is Ven.
3rd star lord is Moo and Sub lord is Ket.
6th star lord is Ven and Sub lord is Ven.
8th star lord is Jup and Sub lord is Sat.
12th star lord is Rah and Sub lord is Merc.
Here Ket as the representative of Ven caused death in sub sub period. So I predicted that the patient may breath his lost before March, 1985.
Actually his death took place on 27th Feb.,1985.
The day was Wednesday. Star was Rohini. Asc was Sagitt. Dasa was Merc Rahu Rahu Ketu.
