Police investigation revealed signs of a ritualistic setting - including a sacrificed chicken, currency notes, and traces of blood - about 10 metres from their home. Police detained both parents, three brothers, and a sister for inquiry.SSP Manjunath TC said the postmortem reports indicated the cause of death as suffocation and injuries sustained during the assault.
