The bodies were sent for autopsy.

Four members of a family were found dead inside their railway quarter in Mullanpur Dakha of Ludhiana, in the early hours Tuesday.

The deceased were identified as Sukhdev Singh (56), his son Jagdeep (28), daughter-in-law Jyoti (24) and granddaughter Jot (2).

Ludhiana rural police said that Sukhdev Singh was posted as a Mate with the Railways. The bodies were first noticed by Sukhdev’s wife, Balbir Kaur, who was sleeping in the adjoining room. When she opened the door of their room Tuesday morning, all four were found dead.

Inspector Gurvinder Singh Bhullar, SHO, Mullanpur Dakha, police station, said that the family had organised Sukhmani Sahib path at their house Monday and had invited some guests. They had slept after having dinner. No external injuries have been found on bodies.

“Cause of death will be clear only after autopsy. The room in which they were sleeping was very congested and the door was not locked from inside but tightly closed. Maybe they were suffocated to death,” said SHO.

Bodies were sent for autopsy at Civil Hospital, Sudhar.
