Police said the 45-year-old Thamaraikannan was into hosiery business and was staying with his wife and his two sons on the third floor of the same building where he had his firm.
Since he did not respond to his father’s mobile phone calls, Thamaraikannan’s father alerted his friends, who rushed to the spot and broke open the door, only to find his body hanging from the ceiling at the entrance, police said. They also found bodies of his wife and two sons, aged 10 and 14, hanging from the ceiling in another room, police said.
