"He admitted that he murdered the three," said Special Additional Commissioner of Kolkata Police (Crime) Debasish Boral.
Asked about the motive, Boral said: "It will slowly become clear."
However, another police officer said Neil Fonseca had accumulated a huge debt and was also involved in an extra-marital relationship.
According to the officer, Fonseca first killed his wife and then the twins in the early hours of January 16.
Police had recovered three bloodstained kitchen knives and a 25-pound dumbbell from the crime scene.
Earlier, Fonseca had claimed that his wife killed her two sons before killing herself.
