He said there was no evidence of anyone forcibly entering the house and the investigation so far has revealed that there was a rift between Kushwaha’s son Balendra and his daughter-in-law due to which she had been living at her maternal home for the last two years.

The SP said that evidence is being collected through field units and sniffer dogs. The bodies have been sent for post-mortem and the investigation taken up, police said.
