Deputy police commissioner (Southwest) Manoj C said a person reported noises on the upper floor of a house around 10:30pm.

After reaching the spot, police found four members of a family dead in their house, senior official said. The caller and his relatives caught hold of the accused and handed him over to the police, he said.

"I returned home around 9.15-9.30pm. 10 minutes later, I heard my cousin Urvashi scream for help. I went upstairs and knocked on the door. We tried to break it open. My cousin Keshav called us out from inside and told us to go away, saying it is a family matter," Kuldeep, a cousin said.

"I called up my uncle and the police. While they were trying to break open the door, I heard someone jump down," he said, as reported by ANI.

The primary investigation revealed that Keshav did not have a stable job. He used to work in a company in Gurgaon and left the job a month ago, police said. Prima facie it seems that the accused killed his family following an argument, they said.

A case under section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code has been registered in Palam police station and further investigation is on, police said.
