A DAD is be­lieved to have mur­dered his wife and two teenage daugh­ters be­fore killing him­self.

The bod­ies of Ji­ten­dra Lad, 49, his wife, Dak­sha, 44, and daugh­ters, Tr­isha, 19, and Nisha, 17, were found at their home in Clayton, Brad­ford, on Mon­day night.

Po­lice launched a mur­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion but said they are not look­ing for any­one else in relation the deaths.

They said early in­di­ca­tions sug­gest the bod­ies may have been in the house “for some time”.

Of­fi­cers were called to the prop­erty at 8.31pm on Mon­day night after they were con­tacted by a neigh­bour who was con­cerned they had not seen the fam­ily re­cently.

Det Su­per­in­ten­dent Si­mon Atkin­son said: “This is clearly a sig­nif­i­cant in­ci­dent and our in­ves­ti­ga­tion will be thor­ough as we piece to­gether the events that have led to the deaths of a lo­cal fam­ily.

“We are un­der­tak­ing foren­sic in­quiries to es­tab­lish how th­ese peo­ple have died.

“We are keep­ing an open mind but from what we know at the mo­ment we are not look­ing for any­body else.”
