The blood-curdling incident took place in Kidwaipuri locality of Patna. The triple killing has sent shock waves in the area.
Police said the businessman Nishant Sarraf returned from his just-opened retail shop located in Khetan market of the state capital on Monday night and went to bed after having dinner with his family.
When the door of his gate didn’t open till late on Tuesday morning, his family members broke open the door only to find all four members of his family lying in a pool of blood. They instantly informed the local police.
The police recovered the body of the businessman (37), his wife (35) and daughter (nine) while four-year-old son who was found seriously injured was rushed to the local hospital.
All the bodies were lying on a bed. Police said all have bullets pumped into their head.
