The decomposed bodies of an elderly brother-sister duo were found at home in northwest Delhi's Bharat Nagar, police said Thursday. Police ruled out any foul play and said it appears to be a case of natural death, however, post-mortem reports are awaited.

The deceased have been identified as Rajkumari (78) and Kamal Khosla (95). Both were unmarried and lived together in Bharat Nagar, police said. Khosla retired from LIC and became paralytic after he met with an accident sometime back. He was completely dependent on his sister Rajkumari, a senior police officer said.

Police suspected Rajkumari must have died first and Kamal would have been left alone with no one to take care of him. The deaths could be due to illness or heat, the officer added.

The decomposed condition of the bodies suggests the deaths occurred over the last two days, the officer said, adding that the relatives called up police Wednesday at around 9.40 am after they did not get any response from the siblings.
