Bihar Sharif (Nalanda), Oct 5 (PTI) Four members of a family, including two children, were found dead at their residence on Monday in Bihar's Nalanda district, a senior police officer here said.
He, however, refused to divulge any further detail about what could have led to their death, and the condition in which the bodies were found.
The deceased have been identified as Ravi Kumar (38), wife Neha Kumari (32), their daughter Jeni Kumari (10) and son Ahan Kumar (8), Superintendent of Police Nilesh Kumar said.
The 38-year-old ran a grocery store, while his wife was a teacher at a local school, he said.
