Four people were found dead at Chhaya Chhetra VDC-9 in Salyan on Tuesday (April 26, 2016). Three of them are said to be from a single family.
Police suspect the multiple death to be murder.
The deceased have been identified as Sitakhan Thakuri, 23, wife of Ramesh, her two daughters–one-year-old Sabita Khan and three-year-old Pabitra Khan–and one Gita Giri of Sharadha Municipality-10.
Local people said that having failed to notice not a single Thakuri family member come out of the house until the late morning, they approached the house to inquire only to find them dead.
Shortly after, they informed police about the incident. The District Police Office Chief Shyam Bahadur Chhetri said that investigation into the incident was on.
