MUMBAI (Reuters) – Eleven members of a family were found dead in India’s capital yesterday, most of them hanging from the ceiling of their home, blindfolded and hands tied behind the back, in a part of the city that was the scene of a gang war just two weeks ago.

The victims included four men and seven women, including teenagers. A neighbor in the Burari district found the victims early yesterday, police said.

One of the bodies was found lying on the floor and the others hanging from a railing attached to the ceiling, media reports said.

On June 18, three people were killed and five were injured when members of rival gangs fired at each other in the main Burari market.
