It said the house belongs to a businessman who ran a plywood shop and dairy. The newspaper said that at around 8am Sunday, a neighbor with whom the businessman used to go for morning walks went to see him and found the door of the house open and the 10 people, including the businessman, hanging. He raised an alarm and people called the police. "It is a tragic incident. Police are investigating. … Let's wait for their investigation to be over," said New Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who visited the scene. In a video posted on Twitter by Kejriwal's ruling party, the neighbors are heard telling Kejriwal that the family was busy with wedding preparations. A neighbor of the family said they couldn't have committed suicide, New Delhi Television reported. The neighbor said he spoke to one of the victims Saturday night and found no sign of any stress, the report said. Indian TV channels broadcast interviews with neighbors who said the family did not have any discord among themselves. Police official Rajesh Khurana told reporters that all angles were being investigated. "We can't rule out anything," he said.
