Now, a new angle has emerged which seems to have deepened the mystery further.
The Delhi Police has found 11 pipes near the entrance of the house. The pipes, coming out of the house in an unusual manner, can be seen awkwardly hanging outside the wall.
Of the 11 pipes, four are straight while seven are tilted. Interestingly, among the deceased, seven were women and four were men.
Also, the way these pipes hang out of the wall coincides with the pattern and placement of the dead bodies.
As per reports, these pipes may indicate towards the observance of some spiritual or mystical practices followed by the Bhatia family.
Nitin, one of the friends of the Bhatia family, told Zee News that the pipes seem to have a connection with the deaths, as the way they hanging out of the wall towards someone else’s flat is quite unusual.
Earlier, police found handwritten notes from the house, which had shocking details of how the act to attain ‘salvation’ should be carried out.
“These notes have strong similarity with the manner in which the mouths, eyes etc of the deceased were tied and taped,” said Additional DCP (North) Vinit Kumar.
It has been reported that the family had been writing these notes since a few months. The last entry in the diary is just two days old. Also, the notes appear to be extracts from some kind of Tantrik literature, according to a Times of India report.
