New Delhi: More than 50 people have been questioned in the death of the four women of a family and their security guard at Mansarovar Park in Shahdara, with the police suspecting that someone known to the family had hired contract killers for it.

It is suspected that the killings were carried out by contract killers hired by someone known to the family, an official privy to the probe said.

More than 50 people have been questioned and 25 teams are probing the case. Family members of the deceased women were also questioned on Sunday, a senior police officer said.

A family member had raised suspicion over involvement of of those workers in the killings.

According to police Urmila was planning to sell some of her property and was in touch with property dealers.
