Reports suggest Warekar laced his family’s food with sedatives before slitting their throats.
Neighbours from the home in Thane, near Mumbai, were alerted to the attack by the screaming of the man’s sister, who survived the attack.
Police say it is still unclear why Warekar carried out the attack.
Authorities are yet to question Warekar’s sister, Thane police spokesman, Gajanan Laxman Kabdule, told AFP, as she was “in deep trauma” at a city hospital.
“He used a big knife. He killed his parents, his sisters and his sisters’ children. He slit their throats” Mr. Kabdule said.
The Press Trust of India news agency reported that the youngest victim was his three-month-old daughter, and the oldest his 55-year-old father.
