DNA (Delhi) - - DELHI - DNA Correspondent correspondent@dnain­

Gu­ru­gram: Three of a fam­ily were found dead un­der mys­te­ri­ous cir­cum­stances at their res­i­dence in Pataudi’s Bri­jpura vil­lage on Wed­nes­day night. While a wo­man was found hang­ing, the two oth­ers were ly­ing in a pool of blood. When the po­lice reached the house, a oneyear-old baby girl was also ly­ing un­con­scious on the floor. All of them had in­jury marks on their bod­ies. A case of mur­der has been reg­is­tered, the po­lice said.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, a call was re­ceived around 9 pm from Bri­jpura vil­lage about four bod­ies found in­side a house. Bod­ies of Man­ish (28), his mother Phool­wati (62) were found in a pool of blood with deep cuts in­flicted with a sharpedged weapon. Man­ish’s wife Pinki (24) was, how­ever, was found hang­ing with in­jury marks on her hands and feet.

When the po­lice reached the house, one-year-old Charu was alive but un­con­scious. She was rushed to a nearby hospi­tal where she suc­cumbed to her in­juries.

Po­lice of­fi­cials are in­ves­ti­gat­ing if Pinki killed the three and later com­mit­ted sui­cide. How­ever, the role of an out­sider is not be­ing ruled out as Pinki had in­jury

marks on her body and the door of the house was ajar.

In­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cials sug­gested that if Pinki had killed them all then it is a strange sce­nario as no one heard any cries for help. The brother of the de­ceased said that the fam­ily mem­bers were cor­dial and had no such is­sues so as to take this ex­treme step.

The bod­ies were dis­cov­ered by neigh­bours who found the door of the house open. When they went in­side the house, they saw Man­ish and Phool­wati in a pool of blood. The po­lice were in­formed. ACP (Pataudi) Veer Singh said, “We are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the case. The foren­sics team has in­spected the crime scene and re­ports are awaited to get down to the nitty-gritty.”
