Five persons, including four women of a family, were found stabbed to death at their home in east Delhi's Mansarovar Park on Saturday morning, police said. They were found dead at their house in Shahdara's Mansarovar Park area, according to Deputy Commissioner of Police Nupur Prasad. The deceased have been identified as Urmila (65), Sangeet Gupta (43), Nupur Jindal (35), Anjali Jindal (33) and security guard Rakesh (50). The family members said that they always believed that staying together in a big, joint family would ensure security. Urmila's husband Brij Bhushan had passed away couple of years ago.
Shakun further said an almirah and a safe had been cut open.
While he was trying to go up to the first floor of the building, where Urmila lived with her daughters, the vendor stumbled upon Kumar's blood-drenched body. "Their throats were slit with meat choppers", said a police officer.
Police said that a cupboard kept in the room where the women were found murdered, was ransacked, but nothing was found missing.More news: Las Vegas shooter planned to escape after shooting
