Kolkata, Dec 26 (IANS) Four members of a family were found dead in their home here Monday. Police suspect that the man killed his wife and two children, and then hanged himself.

Prabir Mandal, 43, was found hanging from the ceiling fan in his home in Kankurgachi after the police broke open the door of the house.

The body of his wife Sandhya, 35, was found on the bed while their two children Prashant and Sikha were lying dead on the floor, a police officer said.
