Mathura (UP), Feb 7 (PTI) A 38-year-old grocer on Sunday was found hanging at his home in Farah area here while his wife and stepson were lying dead on the floor, police said.

Police were informed after the family did not open their house in the morning. Once the policemen reached the spot, the front door was broke open and all three family members were found dead.

“While the bodies of the wife and stepson of the grocer were found on the ground, the grocer was found hanging from the ceiling,' SP (City) Martand Prakash Singh said.

According to the police, Neeraj Agrawal (38) got married to Reema (35) three years ago. Reema, a resident of Agra, had a 10-year-old son Anmol from her previous marriage. They pointed out that this was Neeraj's first wedding.
