Panic gripped the area as five members of a family of a migrant labourer were found dead under mysterious circumstances at their house in Talwandi Bhai, 25 km from district headquarters, on Thursday.

Davinder Singh, Assistant Sub-Inspector, said the deceased were identified as Bihari Bankelal (52), his wife Rani (48), sons Kundan (35) and Nandu (30), besides Nandu’s wife. All the bodies were decomposed, which indicated that they had died a few days ago.

Sources in the police said the matter came to the fore when a neighbour complained about the pungent smell emanating from their house. The police broke open the house and retrieved the bodies, which were sent to the Civil Hospital for a post-mortem.

Sources said a member of the family, Baby (28), was missing while others had died. Police sources said as per preliminary reports, the deaths took place due to poisoning, though the exact reason was yet to be ascertained. Police officials said investigations had been started to crack the mystery.
