Four members of a Sikh family, including three children, have been found murdered in their home in Belgium’s capital city of Brussels.
All the four victims, who hailed from Punjab, had their throats cut, a report from Brussels said.
The gruesome discovery was made when the father Jasbir Singh returned home in the Brussels municipality of Etterbeek from the restaurant where he worked on Friday night, Belgian media reported.
Singh, 39, found the children aged three, five and seven, and his wife dead.
“When I turned on the lights, I saw blood everywhere,” Singh was quoted by RTL-TVI television as saying. “I must know what happened to my children.” Singh, who was reportedly questioned by the police, said that he knew of no enemies.
According to a report in Belgian portal Deredactie.be, the Brussels judicial authorities have confirmed that they are probing a quadruple murder, but have refused to comment further on the case.
The father of the children came to live in Belgium 15 years ago and his wife joined him around five years ago.
