Four of a family were found dead in a house in Lahore’s Rasoolpura area of Nawab Town on Monday night. According to details, the deceased include 25-year-old Malik, his 22-year-old wife Aasiya, five-year-old son Asif and three-year-old daughter Maryam.

The bodies were recovered from their residence located on the third floor of a building.

The two children were shifted to Jinnah hospital but they could not survive.

Police reached the scene and gathered evidence.

According to initial investigation, snare marks are present around the house owner’s neck.

Police say that the person likely has committed suicide after murdering his wife and children with a sharp weapon.

The officials also found bloody footprints from the crime scene which they say have similarity with Malik s feet. However; the ambiguities will be cleared after forensic reports. Further investigation into the murder is underway.
