Four members of a family were found dead inside their house in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday early morning, police said.
While three bodies were found in a burnt state, another was cut into pieces and kept in a bag at the multi-storeyed house in a posh locality near Cliff House, the official residence of Chief Minister and some of his cabinet colleagues.
The incident came to light after locals noticed thick smoke emanating from the house in the wee hours of the day and alerted the police.
Preliminary investigations revealed that it was a case of murder, police said adding the bodies were about three days old.
