New Delhi: Hours after 11 members of a family, including two minor boys, were found dead at their home in north Delhi's Burari, the discovery of a handwritten notes has deepened the mystery.

Police suspect the family followed some religious practice to "attain salvation".

Ten of those dead were found hanging from an iron-mesh in the ceiling for ventilation, while the body of a 77-year-old woman was lying on the floor in another room of the house, the police said. Those who were found hanging had their mouth taped and their faces covered with cloth pieces cut from a single bedsheet. The woman found dead on the floor was without a blindfold and had been allegedly strangulated.

The handwritten notes which indicated a "religious or spiritual angle" to the deaths. A police officer said a probe will be conducted to find "if the family indulged in occult practices" or they followed "any godman".

"We have found handwritten notes detailing how hands and legs are to be tied and the manner in which the bodies of the 10 persons were found reflected what was written in the notes. They are exhaustive notes and we are studying them," Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Alok Kumar said.

Here's a look at some details that have come to the fore through the handwritten notes:

1. Choose Thursday/Sunday.

2. Tie cloth well, nothing but zero should be visible. Along with rope use saree or dupatta.

3. Rituals should be followed seven days before killing. Rituals should be strictly followed, if the spirit invoked within these days, “finish your work” the following day.

4. If the elderly woman can't stand, you can “make her go to sleep” in the next room.

5. Use dim lights.

6. After tying the hands, if a piece of cloth remains, use it to blindfold people.

7. Cloth used to cover mouth should be tightly tied.

8. The more dedication one shows in the process, the better will be the result.

9. It should be done between 12-1 am. Hawan/puja should be done before that.

10. Everyone should have same thoughts. If you are able to do this, it will be quite fruitful.

A day earlier, Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Alok Kumar said that “exhaustive notes” have been recovered from the house, and a police team was “studying it”.

"We have found handwritten notes detailing how hands and legs are to be tied and are quite similar to the manner in which the bodies of 10 persons were found,” he had said.

Eleven members of a family, including seven women and two children under 15 years, were found dead in a Burari house on Sunday morning. Investigators had said three of the deceased could have killed the others under the influence of spiritual practices.
