He said the murders were discovered on Sunday afternoon when the owner of the house, one Dhirendra Kumar, who lived nearby, visited it.

“A foul smell was coming from the house. The landlord immediately went outside Ramlagan’s room on the first floor. When he peeked in through a window, he saw Jyoti’s body lying on the floor. He immediately alerted the police Singh said.

According to a preliminary investigation, Gautam killed his wife and children on the night of Thursday to Friday, he said.
