Four members of a family were found murdered on Wednesday night in a village called Brijpura in Pataudi sub-town of Gurugram district, police said on Thursday. The incident came to light when village headman informed the police. The incident was reported by a milkman, who went to their house to supply milk.
“The milkman found three bodies in a pool of blood inside the house and a woman hanging from a ceiling fan. He immediately informed the village headman about the incident,” said Vir Singh, ACP of Gurugram police.
The deceased have been identified as Manish Gour (25), his mother Foolwati (62), wife Pinki (24) and their one-year-old daughter Charu. Manish and Foolwati were found lying in a pool of blood on the floor with several stabs and blunt injury marks on head and neck while Pinki was found hanging from a ceiling fan in a different room with deep cut marks on her legs and hands. Charu, who had suffered critical injuries, was taken to a nearby hospital but succumbed to injuries later.
“It appeared during the investigation that the attacker or attackers may have had friendly entry inside the house as no noise came from there. The accused must be known to the family. The forensic team is examining the crime scene. We have made adequate deployment of police teams in the village to maintain law and order situation,” the ACP said.
The official suspects that as there was no sign of resistance, it indicates that the accused intoxicated them to make them unconscious and then brutally murdered them with sharp and blunt objects.
The mother and son sustained blunt wounds on their heads. There is also another theory that has emerged that Pinki may have killed her husband, daughter and mother-in-law before committing suicide. Meanwhile, police have registered an FIR against unknown persons.
“We are investigating the case with all possible angles. It is turning out to be a blind case with hardly any clue. The identification of the accused persons has not established yet. Efforts are on to nab them,” said Subhash Bokan, PRO of Gurugram police.
