As per police sources, no injury marks were present on their bodies, and that the cause of death will be clear only after post-mortem. Allegedly, the hands and legs of one of the two women were tied up due to which it is being speculated that she may have been strangled. The second woman, found dead on the first floor, was not tied up. Meanwhile, the owner of the house was found sleeping on the ground floor.

According to the information, the incident came to light at around 9.30 am when the family’s dog trainer knocked on the door of the building, where the two women worked but found no response. The trainer then called the building owner and told her that nobody was opening the door. She (employer) came down, opened the door for him and then went to check on the domestic help. They found one of the victims on the ground floor and the other on the first floor.
