BANGALORE: Initial reports emerging from the autopsy of Anu Yadav and her children, Keerthi and Adithya Shubham, who were murdered on Sunday in Singapura suggested simultaneous attacks on all the three, making the police to suspect involvement of two or more persons in the crime.

The post-mortem was conducted at the M.S. Ramaiah Hospital on Monday and preliminary reports said blunt weapons were used to attack the deceased on their head. The three were brutally done to death at their residence at Singapura, off Vidyaranyapura, early Sunday morning when D.S. Yadav, Anu’s husband, had gone to the railway station to reschedule the family’s trip to Haryana.

Based on the evidence gathered from the scene of crime and autopsy reports, the police are searching for clues that could lead them to the assailants. Even finger prints could not be gathered from the scene of crime and forensic experts are trying hard for the same, said a police officer.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Syed Ulfath Hussain said the police were questioning friends, relatives and neighbours. Efforts were being made to trace the suspects, he said. Mr. Hussain dismissed reports of D.S. Yadav’s involvement in the crime and said, “It is just a rumour. There is nothing against Mr. Yadav.”

Many of Mr. Yadav’s family members were at the M.S. Ramaiah Hospital, where the autopsy of the three bodies was done. The relatives were shocked over the ghastly incident.
