Eleven members of a family, including seven women, were found dead under mysterious circumstances in north Delhi’s Burari this morning, the police said.
Ten bodies were found hanging and blindfolded, while a 75-year-old woman’s body was found on the floor. Two of the deceased are minors, they said. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari visited the spot.
As per the police, they were initially informed by a neighbour that six to seven people have committed suicide. But upon reaching the spot, it was found that 11 members of a family had died. The family was into plywood business and they were staying in the locality for the last 20 years.
“Some of them were found hanging from an iron grill ceiling while others were lying on the floor blindfolded with their hands and legs tied,” Joint Commissioner of Police Rajesh Khurana said.
“Prima facie, we suspect they committed suicide but we are also investigating the case with other possible angles of homicide as well as we are not ruling out anything else. We are also checking CCTV footages.
There were two brothers Bhupinder and Lalit Singh with the former running a grocery store and the latter was a carpenter. Both operated their businesses from their family home.
