New Delhi: In a grisly incident, four members of a Sikh family, including three children, have been found murdered in their home in Belgium's capital city of Brussels.
The bodies were found by the head of the family Jasbir Singh on Friday night after he returned home from the restaurant where he worked.
His wife and 3 children had been stabbed to death. Forensic teams scanned the crime scene on Saturday to collect evidence. No arrests have been made yet.
"When I turned on the lights, I saw blood everywhere," Singh was quoted by RTL-TVI television as saying. "I must know what happened to my children."
Singh, who was reportedly questioned by the police, said that he knew of no enemies. According to a report in Belgian news portal Deredactie.be, the Brussels judicial authorities have confirmed that they are probing a quadruple murder, but have refused to comment further on the case.
The father of the children came to live in Belgium 15 years ago and his wife joined him around 5 years ago. Etterbeek mayor Vincent De Wolf said it appeared to be a private matter and sought to reassure local residents about the murder.
