Eleven members of a family found dead in house in India's capital

The home was above a grocery store owned by the family in the Burari district in a northern part of Delhi, near where three people were killed and several injured in a shootout between two gangs just two weeks ago.

During a search of the house, handwritten notes were found that point "toward observance of some definite spiritual or mystical practices by the whole family", the statement said.

This angle was being investigated and a case of murder registered, the statement said.

Police are investigating the deaths to determine whether they were the result of suicide or homicide.

A bunch of handwritten notes found in a couple of registers have given fresh direction to the investigation into the deaths of a family of 11 in north Delhi's Burari.

"These notes have strong similarity with the manner in which the mouths, eyes etc of the deceased were tied and taped".

Ten people were found hanging - blindfolded, gagged and hands tied - on the first floor of the house whereas the dead body of an old lady was found in an adjacent room in the house in Sant Nagar.

The family had lived in the house for more than two decades, the Hindustan Times newspaper reported. Bhavnesh's wife Savita (48) and their three children-Meenu (23), Neetu (25) and Dhruv (15) were also found dead, police said, adding Lalit's wife Tina (42) along with their 15-year-old son Shivam was also among the dead. The family was into plywood business and they were staying in the locality for the last 20 years, the locals said.

Police are now reviewing surveillance footage in the area as well as interviewing neighbors to determine what happened.

"I saw the bodies hanging, stools lying around, and my wife's aunt sprawled on the floor by the bed".

A neighbor told a local television station that he did not believe the family could have died by suicide. I don't think they committed suicide.

Calling it a mass murder, a media report said that it was an insider's job, who was under some tantrik's influence.

Police are investigating. Let's wait for their investigation to be over, ' said New Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who visited the scene.

Police have started their investigation and are asking the neighbours for clues.
