Police are investigating the mysterious deaths of 11 people after their bodies were found blindfolded and hanging in a house in India.
The victims were all from the same family and most had lived in the home where they were found in Burari village in the northern part of New Delhi, said police officer Vineet Kumar.
Police are investigating whether the victims – four men, three women and four girls – died by suicide or were killed, Kumar said. No suicide note was found, he said.
Police were called into the home in India’s capital on Sunday morning and later said there was no sign of forced entry into the house. There were also no bullet marks on the bodies of the victims, Kimar said.
“We’re yet to reach any conclusion whatsoever,’ he said. Ten bodies, blindfolded by cotton and pieces of cloth, were found hanging from an iron grill used as a ventilator in the home’s courtyard.
“The body of a 70-year-old woman was lying on the floor of the house,” a police official said.
According to the Hindustan Times, the family had been living in the house for more than two decades and it was said to belong to a businessman who ran a plywood shop and dairy.
The newspaper said that at about 8am on Sunday, a neighbour who was friends with the man went to visit him and found the door of the house open.
New Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, who visited the scene, called the incident ‘tragic’. “Police are investigating, let’s wait for their investigation to be over,” he said.
In a video posted on Twitter by Kejriwal’s ruling party, the neighbours are heard telling Kejriwal that the family was busy with wedding preparations.
A neighbour of the family said they spoke to one of the victims on Saturday night and found no sign of any stress, the report said.
Police official Rajesh Khurana told reporters that all angles were being investigated. ‘We can’t rule out anything,’ he said.
