Lucknow, May 30 (IANS) A liquor trader, his wife and two minor sons were found murdered in their home in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut city Sunday, police said.

‘Prima facie it appears that the assailants killed the four with a sharp edged weapon. We are still to ascertain any exact reason behind the killings,’ Inspector Naresh Verma told reporters in Meerut.

‘When no one responded to the door bell of Narendra’s flat, residents of the apartment approached us this (Sunday) evening and thereafter we reached the site and found all of them murdered,’ he added.
