: Four members of a family,

including two women and a three-year-old boy, were found dead in a well in Warangal district in Telangana on Thursday, police said.

The incident occurred at a gunny bag-stitching unit in the district, the police said.

Based on preliminary investigation, it is suspected that the four committed suicide, and a detailed probe was on, they said.

The bodies of a man (48), his wife (42) and their 23- year-old daughter along with her son were taken out and no external injuries were found on the bodies, they said.

The man had migrated from West Bengal over 20 years ago and had settled down in Warangal.

"Their bodies were found in the well and there were no external injuries on them. It (death) appears (to be suicide), however, investigation was underway to ascertain it," Warangal Police Commissioner V Ravinder told PTI over phone.
