Blindfolded bodies found hanging in New Delhi house

The victims belonged to the same family and majority had lived in the same home in Burari village in the northern part of New Delhi, said police officer Vineet Kumar.

Amrik Singh, whose father was one of the first persons to find the bodies, said the family was preparing for the wedding of Priyanka and seemed quite happy.

This angle was being investigated and a case of murder registered, the statement said. The notes - which talk of unusual religious beliefs - provide a motive in the case, say the police, who initially thought it was mass suicide and then said it could be mass murder by one of the family, who then committed suicide.

According to the police, the out of the 11 bodies, seven were of women and four men.

A policeman writes notes in the house where the bodies of eleven members of a family were found dead in Burari, in New Delhi, India, July 1, 2018.

He added, "Coincidentally, these notes have a strong similarity to the manner in which the mouth, eyes etc of the deceased were tied and taped". On Sunday morning, a neighbour, who used to purchase milk from their shop everyday at 6 a.m., found it closed.

"The notes say if a group of 11 people follows these rituals, all problems would ease out and they would attain salvation". A 77-year-old woman was the only one found lying on the floor.

It also said that the house belongs to a businessman who ran a plywood shop and dairy.

The newspaper said that at around 8 a.m. Sunday, a neighbour with whom the businessman used to go for morning walks went to see him and found the door of the house open and the 10 people, including the businessman, hanging. "I couldn't bear watching anymore", he said.

Mr Thukral questioned whether the family had died by suicide.

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

"No father can kill his own son ... how would a mother be able to kill her own children? These are murders", he said.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal visited the crime spot and told the reporters that the investigation is underway.

Police is now awaiting the post-mortem reports of the bodies, which would clear if one of the family members killed the rest and then committed suicide or was it a suicide pact.
