MUMBAI/NEW DELHI – Eleven members of a family were found dead in India’s capital yesterday, most of them hanging from the ceiling of their home, blindfolded, gagged and with hands tied behind the back, with police unable to offer any concrete explanation about what happened.

A police statement said some handwritten notes were found in the house “which point towards observance of some definite spiritual/mystical practices by the whole family”.

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

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