The victims have been identified as Deepmala alias Deepa (34), son Saksham (9) and daughter Shaily (2).

The incident came to fore around 7.30pm when the Central Excise Inspector Amit Kumar (38), returned home.

According to police, Deepmala was found hacked to death in the bedroom, while the kids were in the bathroom.

All of them had injuries caused by sharp objects.

Police got a call about the incident around 8:30 PM following which senior officials rushed to the spot.

“There was no ransacking of the house and robbery doesn’t seem to be the motive. Personal enmity seems to be the motive given the way children have been killed,” a police officer said.

A Delhi police team led by DCP West Pushpender Kumar reached the spot immediately.

A crime and forensic team was also called in to pick up evidence. Police would order an SDM inquiry. A case has been registered. Amit has been detained for questioning.
