Three members of a family were found dead under mysterious circumstances in their home in Pataudi town of Haryana's Gurugram district, while a one-year-old girl, who was seriously injured, died in a hospital.
The bodies of 25-year-old Manish, his wife Pinki (22), his mother Phoolwati (62) were found by a milkman who had gone to their residence in Brijpura village to supply milk yesterday.
While Manish and his mother were found in a pool of blood, his wife Pinki was found hanging from a ceiling fan in another room with deep cut marks on her legs and hands, Assistant Commissioner of Police (Pataudi) Ber Singh said.
