Five members of a family including three children - aged 18, 16 and 12 years were found dead at a home in Delhi's Bhajanpura. Delhi Police had received a call at nearly 11:30 am today after neighbours complained of foul smell emanating from the house. The police broke the door of the house and found the five bodies -- three males and two females. 

Delhi Police called in medicos and forensic experts at the spot and the probe was underway. The highly-decomposed bodies have been sent for the post mortem examination. The cause of the death is yet to be ascertained, a senior police officer said. No note has been recovered from the spot, they added.

What do we know of the Bhajanpura family so far?

The family had shifted to the C Block home in Bhajanpura for just six months. They were in rented accommodation. Head of the family, recognised as Shambhunath, was 43.  His wife Sunita was 38 and they had three kids - aged 18, 16 and 12 years. 

The house was locked from outside. Police are probing all possible angles.
