NEW DELHI: Police on Saturday found an injured woman along with the bodies of her two children in their rented accommodation in East Delhi, while her husband was found dead on the nearby railway tracks.

According to police, around 2 pm, they received information from a man that his elder brother Shyamji Chaurasia (42), a resident of Shashi Garden in Pandav Nagar, was missing while the house was locked since Friday.

A police team immediately reached the house and found it locked from outside while a foul smell was coming from inside.

They broke the lock and found the siblings – Kartik (15) and Astha (9) – dead while their mother Shanno (40) lay unconscious in a room, a police officer said.

The woman has multiple injuries and is being treated, he said.

It was suspected that Shyamji, who ran a tea stall in Mayur Vihar, strangled his children to death, attacked his wife and then fled, another police official said.

While the police were investigating the case, they received information that Shyamji’s body was found on the railway track near their house.

Shyamji’s younger brother told police that he went to the house on Friday evening but found it locked from outside.

He visited the house again on Saturday morning, only to find it still locked and his brother’s phone inaccessible.

When a foul odor came from the house in the afternoon, he alerted police, officials said.

Police suspect that after attacking his wife and children, Shyamji ended his life on the railway tracks.

Further investigation into the matter is underway, a police official said.
