“Prima facie, evidence suggest that the accused bolted all the doors and windows of the house and killed his family while they slept. Later, he hung himself near a staircase in the bungalow and the knife he used was found near his body,” Thane Joint Police Commissioner Ashutosh Dumbare said.
Sabia’s loud screams prompted some youths in the locality to break open the doors and windows of the house, he said.
A forensic team has been summoned to the crime scene while the bodies have been sent for an autopsy, Dumbare added.
The police is probing motive for the crime and suspects family dispute as a reason.
