Eleven members of an extended family have been found dead in a house in Delhi - 10 of them hanging from the ceiling.
A woman in her 70s was the only one found lying on the floor. The dead included two brothers, their wives and children and the brothers’ mother. Most of the dead were blindfolded and gagged with their hands tied behind their backs. The family’s pet dog was found alive.
The police said it was too early to know what happened but have not ruled out murder.
But they also released a statement saying they had found handwritten notes in the house which pointed to "definite spiritual and mystical practices".
The family from Rajasthan lived in the Burari district of Delhi. They ran two shops on the ground floor of a three-storey building.
The bodies were discovered by a neighbour when he went to buy milk.
They seemed a happy family, said local residents.
