The dead man has been identified as one Gulshan, who ran a jeans-manufacturing business. “He had suffered severe financial losses in his business,” assistant superintendent of police Keshav Kumar said. The police said that the couple allegedly murdered their children and committed suicide due to the financial crisis. The second woman helped him with his manufacturing business, the police added.

A message scrawled on a wall of the apartment mentioned that one Rakesh Verma was responsible for the deaths and said all five should be cremated together.

Details are awaited.
