The bodies and the injured man, identified as Soorajbhan, 45, were found in a pool of blood around 6.30 a.m near a railway track situated a few metres from Sarojini Nagar railway station in south Delhi.
One of the deceased, in his early 20s, was yet to be identified while the other two were identified as Ramesh, 40, a Delhi Police employee who worked as a cook at the residence of a senior officer of the force, and Meena, 40, a maid.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Railway) Dumbere Millind Mahadeo told IANS that the sequence of events was yet to be ascertained.
“The railway police is investigating the case from all possible angles to find out if it was an accidental case or there was any foul play behind it,” Mahadeo told IANS.

He said that Soorajbhan was in an inebriated condition when he was found injured near the railway track along with the three bodies.
“Soorajbhan’s statement only can unravel the puzzle how all of them reached at the railway track. Were they travelling in the train and fell while stepping down from it or they were trying to board? Where were they going?,” the officer said.
