In a shocking incident, a woman and her two children were found dead at their residence in west Delhi's Raghubir Nagar at 5.30 am today.
The victims have been identified as Shabnam, her eight-year-old son Imran and six-year-old daughter Khushi.
The incident came to light when the woman's husband, who had gone to Jaipur for some work returned home today and found them all dead.
The police have found injury marks on their necks, apparently inflicted by a sharp weapon. Shabnam's limbs were found tied as well.
The residence was also found ransacked, but it is yet to ascertain whether robbery was the motive.
"Prima facie, we have found strangulation marks on the bodies. The deceased's husband was out of station when the incident occurred. Further investigations are on," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Pushpendra Kumar said.
Meanwhile, the husband, who returned from Jaipur this morning, suspects his landlord's involvement in the murder.
