In their inspection of the crime scene, police investigators suspect that the couple and their daughter may have been killed over a ‘deep grudge’ since ordinary killers usually spare babies in such murders.

Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar took notice of the incident and directed the inspector general of police to get investigated the triple murder on a priority basis and trace the killers as soon as possible.

The investigators found deep cuts and bruises on the bodies, according to a police official who quoted the forensic experts. The investigators also found that the man and his wife were tied together before being killed with an edged weapon, in order to avoid resistance.

He said various articles were found scattered in the room where the bodies were lying.
